I learned better strategies from Rome total war, Empire Earth, Battlefield 2, and etc, then any general's school could hope to teach me. I think this is because you don't learn strategies, you make them.

We came to the following conclusions.
Most fps's will enhance minor motor kinetic function and perhaps speed of thought and strategy.
Will def enhance strategic thinking with regards to killing other human beings.
Almost all fps's suffer from major downfalls in regards to training a super soldier. Games offer a measurable amount of 'health' as well as health packs. To negate these (as in a real life situation) would dramitically change standard strategies.
All strategies for these games are based on values programmed into the game, this creates a limited number of scenarios (unlike real life).

Oh man Omega, I have put like 3 months of my life into Operation Flashpiont Cold War Crisis/Resistance. I just love that game and the mission editor is amazing! I have only played a little Armed Assault because my graphics card is too old on my home PC. That VBS1 and 2 look amazing too though. Are they available for home PC use? I heard that OFP2 is coming out on PS3. That should be great as long as they retain the realism and mission editor. I may have to buy a PS3 just for that game.
OFP Rocks! Not sure how well it would prepare me for battle though.
