Interesting history behind the “America’s army” game. I can see how it would be viewed as problematic when kids in their early teens are getting influenced.

8:30 – That mobile gaming truck is nice!

10:39 – “You can’t join the Army just to play video games. All the soldiers here have had other positions in the military. The esports team is only a temporary assignment.”

VICE recently did another, different report on video games in the military  – used for combat training.
