Last night I saw a video work Immersion by German artist Harun Farocki, which doneumcts psychotherapy sessions with soldiers who came back from Iraq with PTSD in which the soldier is aided by virtual simulation program in recreating a traumatic experience. The result of such recollection is creation of a 3D environment and a dangerous situation which are native to video games, except in this situation the experience already happened in reality. This is not really adding to your discussion, but its haunting to think that soldiers are recruited into the army with the use of videos resembling video games, trained by video games and then their traumas are treated by 3D virtual simulations.
