I mean its a realistic war simulator and most of logged many many hours into it. So are we considered soldiers?

Don't dare compare CoD players to actual veterans. They've put themselves in danger constantly, they had friends who they've seen die, and many of them come back home with PTSD, and can't find jobs. Some of them end up getting into a bad life, and also end up killing themselves. Don't you dare compare video game players to veterans. Disrespectful.

This. And every time greer/AXKSION starts typing his propaganda and his conspiracy theories, it's disrespectful as well.

I would say some of them are. You know the ones that have been to war in real life, and no, fighting with your mom over your bed time doesn’t count as a war.

They're veterans of the game they are playing if they can beat the difficulty equivalent to whatever veteran difficulty is in that game. Nothing more, nothing less.

You can't even compare them to the programmers/engineers/etc in the armed forces that don't even see battle.
