Professional planners play Cities: Skylines and SimCity 2000. Interesting stuff.

[edit]
Changed thread title because I want to post links to other cool videos. Feel free to add more yourself.

Nothing new. Harpoon was initially a game used to wargame different naval warfare scenarios.

Regardless it was interesting for me to see how professional city planners build cities in video games and I learned something from it. Policewoman playing herself in GTA5 is good too. And their commentary about games and their realism (and lack of it) is something worth of note.

I can't count how many hours I and my shipmates played Harpoon while on my last deployment on USS America in 1992.

Sounds good! Can you make a video about it? Or has somebody else made it already? I mean a video about navy personnel playing Harpoon.

Navy veterans play Battleship

It's a little late for that in my case, Kuokkanen. I left the Navy over 21 years ago.

Correct, Lobster. It means Sonar Technician, Submarine according to this.
