Default Has Project Reality influenced a decision for you to join the military?

***Edit***

Thanks to everyone who gave me feedback. Attached to this post are the fruits of my labour. i couldn't get anyone's results in, or the actual poll included as I didn't have the time...

Enjoy!

I'm conducting a research paper, and need to get as much information from a gaming audience as possible!

If you have been affected by video games in your decision to possibly follow a military career choice either now or later, i would be very thankful if you could put how and why in a small post below. If you feel brave enough i would also be grateful if you could stick your age down.

I am desperately after someone who has followed a career in the military due to their video games experience, just to ask a few questions. If you are, or know anybody who fits that criteria, please please please get into contact.

Cheers guys!

I play games because of my interest in the military and because i have always wanted to pursue a career in the military . 19 years of age, was visiting museums and airfields at a very young age.

This. Still mighty tempted to join as an officer but there are several things such as current job/family/gf that hold me back from going to sign up. I voted 3, always been interested but play videogames as part of that interest.

The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like... victory. Someday this war's gonna end... "

I'm currently talking to the RAF about a sponsorship to do a degree in nursing since biological science is turning out to be not my thing. Computer games haven't influenced me, I've always been interested in serving since a young age with a keen interest in the military and military history. However I'm going abroad to volunteer in kenya first. Video games are just another avenue of that interest.

Currently in the process of joining the Australian Army. Its always been something that I knew I would want to do, but I had conflicts of what I wanted to do once I would leave school. I'm cut between Botany (study of flowers, don't laugh) and continuing my application.

I can honestly say that playing war-like vidya games has strengthened my desire for a military career though, even though I'm applying for a 99% non-combat job.

As far as i can remember, i always wanted to join military, it's my passion, it's my way of life seriously, i dont imagine myself doing something else than that, there is no "civilian" counter part of carrying a rifle for miles, firing thousands of bullet each year's, firing M18A1, M72A5, HMG's, GPMG's, SAW, Carbine etc... doing shit load of crap XD like crossing river in the winter etc etc etc... i'm like born the be a soldier and now i'm my first combat deployment is coming pretty soon

Never wanted to actually join the military, just interested in military equipment, tactics/strategy and history. Video games haven't influenced that decision. (17 y.o.)
