US Army sponsoring Global Gaming League for an estimated $2 million

Contrary to popular belief, the Army isn't looking for just any ol' pizza roll munching, message board trolling gamer. No, they're only looking for the best of the best. So when the Army dumps somewhere around $2 million dollars into the Global Gaming League, you better believe they're on the head hunt.

With their eyes set on the 17-24 male demographic that makes up 80 percent of the players on the site, the Army isn't stopping at just mere advertisement. America's Army is one of the games played by the league and potential tournament victors may win a chance to check out actual computer simulations of combat situations utilized by the Army.

Naturally, CGL players will be able to opt out of these situations, but it still gives us the creeps.
