Gamers

A gamer v. a soldier on the same course. Soldier looks to have a GSG and not a Mp5.

    I have a GSG and I thought the same thing…those magazines look just like mine.

  2. Shootin' Buddy Says:

    It’s the UK, of course it is a .22.

  3. Fred Says:

    It is a GSG5. Not just the magazines, but the trigger housing, the fake can, and the ejection port are quite dead give-aways.

    I wanna see gamer boy actually run the real course, not in the game.

    Long time since I’ve seen a real soldier with finger on trigger…

  5. john Says:

    Now that I’ve watched the whole thing… I never want to see that guy again.

  6. GunMonkey Says:

    Now I’d love to run their real life course see how well I would do, but as for the game version, he was at least 6 seconds slower than me, and I’m not what I would call an expert.

    He looks a bit old to be sounding like a fanboy and playing games but I understand they don’t have much real jobs over in Britain – everyone’s on the dole.

  8. anon Says:

    One shot, two kills, using a round that couldn’t penetrate a vest? I thought these games were supposed to be realistic?

  9. Fred Says:

    They’re not penetrating a vest… just cardboard.

    The average video game buyer is 35 years old. The iteration of the game in the video presold more than half a billion dollars worth of copies prior to launch. The video game industry is, by a huge margin, far more lucrative than all of Hollywood.

    All of which is a long-winded way of saying that the conventional wisdom that holds video gamers to be pimply, fat, underemployed man-children with emotional issues who engage in a fringe activity is a bit outdated. Or at least a bit disingenuous.

    How many times did the spec op guy get to run the course before the face off? I assume the gamer had played through that intro level dozens of times. And did Sid know the trick about shooting two at a time, because that was pretty lame.

    It was interesting to see the different approaches. It seems to be a lot easier to run and gun in a virtual world. Not having to worry about tripping or running into things helps, I suppose. Still, not a lot of strafing or bunny hopping so I have to conclude Sid was a noob.
