Military training via video games

by Critical Commons Manager

Trainers in a military academy can see through a cadet's eyes as they cultivate skills in video games, violence and social ruthlessness that would be considered sociopathic under any other circumstances. Ender's Game is anomalous in the history of games on film in reversing the generational condemnation of games and violence. In this case, it is the teenagers who remain morally centered during wartime, in spite of - or possibly because of - their exposure to video games.
