  • Do video games help you shoot?...

    For those that are gamers (shooter), did/does it help you shoot at the range,or accuracy?...When you play games like Socom Navy Seals, Medal of Honor, Call of Duty, Arcade shooters,ect these games are a little realistic...I understand the games doesn't provide the recoil/kick of the weapon, but as far as just shooting...

    Absolutely not. There's a lot more to accurate shooting than handling recoil. The major reason is that the muscle memory needed isn't developed by playing games - playing C0D4 means that you can move a keyboard and mouse well, not that you can pick up a P90 and go to town. The games don't teach you a thing about properly handling a weapon.
    For every one hundred men you send us,
    Ten should not even be here.
    Eighty are nothing but targets.
    Nine of them are real fighters;
    We are lucky to have them, they the battle make.
    Ah, but the one. One of them is a warrior.
    And he will bring the others back.

      I've been shooting for years and gaming even longer, playing games does not help at all.

        If that were the case, I'd be a Tiger Woods by now.

            No.


            There is a "video game" used by the Army, but it's more used for fire squad tactics and weapons familiarzation.

              All you nay-sayers, missed out on DUCK HUNT.



              For the record... Did anyone else ever try to shoot the dog for laughing at you?

                That's the only thing I shot at.

                I think someone recently made a web-based game where you're shooting at laughing dogs instead of ducks, I'll have to find it.

                        Have any of you ever played the arcade game Police 911?
                        It's a lot of fun, it has a pad that senses when you take cover.

                            Yea Police 911 is fun. Our agency uses the AIS/PRIm simulator to sharpen shoot/don't shoot. That thing is a lot of fun.

                              I don't think that standard keyboard / mouse / joystick games could do as much for you as ones that use real guns that are modified to interact with a full size screen. I really like the FATS machine we used at the academy. Recoil or not- the shoot - don't shoot part of the experience has teaching value.
