Novotny writes "The Guardian is reporting on the use of the game engine for Full Spectrum Warrior, alongside 8 smells (including gunpowder, cordite, burning rubber, Iraqi spices, barbecued lamb and body odour) in treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in Iraq veterans. Whilst anything that helps our soldiers get over undoubtably harrowing experiences is worth trying, I wonder how long it will be until Jack Thompson pipes up claiming this is further evidence that video gaming is a bad experience for anyone, nevermind kids?"

Byte your tongue.
