As a former infantryman with more than the average amount of experience with firearms, explosives, and hectic situations, I can say with certainty that games do nothing to simulate a realistic situation. The notion that any game, even the so-called simulators like ArmA, could train you for such a thing is entirely ridiculous.

Video games don't create psychos, psychos just happen to like video games. Correlation is not causation.

Hear, hear. More of this, please.

As an aside, a lot of soldiers use video games to relax. Logic would dictate that games can't be anything like their jobs if they're using them in their off time.
