Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

OSLO (Reuters) - Norwegian anti-Islamic fanatic Anders Behring Breivik told a court on Thursday that he used computer games to prepare for his attacks, once spending an entire year isolated from society playing a game for hours on end.

Breivik, on trial for massacring 77 people last July, said he spent "lots of time" playing Modern Warfare, a first-person shooting game, and also took an entire year off to play World of Warcraft, a multi-player role-playing game with more than 10 million subscribers.

"I don't really like those games but it is good if you want to simulate for training purposes," Breivik said as he discussed Modern Warfare, smiling when asked about the aiming system.

I allways have to smile reading such messages.
In no way a game can learn you how to shoot, use the rifle or carry it.
Real life is much different.
A rifle weighs, you cant keep it shouldered for hours like in a game.
In a  game you dont have to take into account the charisterics flight path of a bullet on different distances.
You dont have to look at weather influences, you dont have to worry about breathing.

And if a person would change into a serial killer after playing those games, we should have millions of killers on the road by now Smiley
I dont believe a game turns you into a killer......
