I sense some widespread trolling from 4chan and the likes might have a bad effect...

Now, if they had a game to run simulations on Somali hostage situations on the ship and ask gamers what best strategy to take back the ship then I could see the tech being put to good use.
Gamers don't know any more about real world combat than they do about politics. Plus, the army already knows how to storm buildings.

That is what I assume it was. But if it isn't what the hell kind of game will it be!?

You aren't actually serious are you? Making political decisions for a country from a "Gamers" point of view is a good idea to you? Thinking outside the box will accomplish nothing when you do not have full knowledge of what your actions will effect. In other words, you don't have access to Top Secret information so you don't know what your actions will do to the worlds political situations.

How do you think they know how to storm buildings? Because they do it in practice daily for hours, guess what, so do gamers. Gamers are basically running the situations in "simulators" (I use this term loosely) like COD every day for 16 hrs a day in some cases. So you take your real world knowledge and take these simulated scenarios and piece together a more complex strategy that can save lives. I don't see the problem with this.

Correct me if I am wrong but your theory on this is "If it works don't try to improve it". We'd all be stuck with tape drives, bulbs and vacuum tubes in our computers if we all thought that way.

EDIT: To add to this, we could run computer simulations endlessly but at the end of the day using only AI you will not run into real world situations that human error produce. The more human interaction you build into these "simulations" the more accurate your findings will be.

So we can fire real missles from controlling them from our PCs?

Good idea but it wasnt fully thought through. I used to play in various competitive leagues for fps games, cevo,cal,esea, etc. and something thats rather important to succeeding in that environment is knowledge. You have to know your tools inside and out (which we wont) you have to know everything about the ship (which we'll be provided a fake scenario) gotta know your teams strengths and weaknesses, etc.

The only thing this might accomplish is providing outside of the box options (crazy ideas) which will never see combat.

That was the first thing that came to mind. I was on my phone so I just punched in numbers.
