    This has to be one of the worst stories of ignorance in the gaming industry for at least 10 minutes!

    Well, if that's the case, then the authorities should be listening in to all those World of Warcraft addiction lines...

    Person A: "I just cannot seem to get myself off it. Everytime I take a toilet break, I get the shakes and I feel I need to get back to my character".
    Person B: "You need to calm down. Whenever you use the bathroom, just think of something else"
    Person A: "Like the mission to slaughter all those ignorant fools..."
    Person B: "I'm sorry, what was that?"
    Person A: "Oh, I mean the orcs... ...Yes, mission to slaughter the orcs..."
    Person B: "Riiiiight.... ...I'm just going to put you on to my supervisor a mintue"
    *click*...

    Since when have plasma grenades and regenerating health via an armed suit been realistic for a training environment? :frown2:

    I suspect that the researchers involved in this did not actually study WoW in particular, but just thought of one of the most popular computer games that came into their head first. This sort of thing has happened so many times before with other media texts.
