The future of war gaming is VR. Imagine DC Barbarossa in virtual reality where you are standing on the battlefield, interacting with generals to common soldiers, visiting the Wolf's Lair, Churchill, Stalin, etc... You are actually in the game participating. Stalin might purge you, a commissar might have you shot, you might pick up a rifle, map, pee in the woods, fly a plane, what ever. I'm not talking just first person shooter here (I hate those games)...but first person strategist, diplomat, tactician, wide open for what ever. Interacting with the personalities and possibilities.
Pay close attention to what is happening in the world of VR and its development.
That won't happen for twenty years at the earliest. Of note, people also said VR would be that great twenty years ago.
Remember the movie Disclosure? It used VR and wow, that seemed pretty slick. We're just now getting VR headsets. So, I agree with you.
