      I think the game they developed to help train soldiers was released somewhere. I think it might even be free. Don’t know the name though.


      Apparently it’s just called America’s Army and you can download it. http://www.americasarmy.com/

      I didn’t know about that…

      I think some scientists did some research to show that kids playing computer games became a lot more violent than those who don’t , which makes sense I guess.

      But then again, I go around killing zombies in Minecraft, but never feel the need to attack anyone with a 2D sword!
