Video Game Playing Skills Useful In Real Life Combat Situation

The U.S. Army has discovered that soldiers who grew up playing video games are better at operating CROWS (common remotely operated weapon stations).  Apparently, skills required in operating video games are very similar to the CROWS controls. With CROWS, a gunner remains relatively safe inside the vehicle as he checks out the surroundings on a computer monitor (with night vision and telephoto capabilities). They noted experienced video gamers are skilled at whipping that screen view around, and picking up any signs of danger. Does this mean more Army Recruiters will be dropping by video arcades from now on?
