That war shit has been played out, IMHO.
    Why gamers? So after they bomb something they can yell "LOLZ noob"?
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I'm assuming or rather wondering if the skills would transfer over. At least the visual part of the operations. I admit however that is a pretty big assumption as I really have not bothered to look at how drones are piloted or even what the controller sees.

    I remember reading an article once that claimed that gamers were shown to be more capable drone pilots, but I can't even remember where I read it now, so you can take that for what it's worth (not much).
