The Ultimate War Sim
This item is funnier if you've played Starcraft or another RTS, but you can enjoy the sarcasm even if you don't know what RTS means. (Real time strategy — popular game genre most known for professional Korean players who have keeled over dead from playing too long without food, drink, or sleep. e.g. Age of Empires, Starcraft, Command & Conquer)

War games don't approximate reality. Winning is too easy. Objectives are clear; combat is limited by wealth, not citizen support; civilians stay clear of carnage; friendly fire death is non-existent; you never contend with “fat, left-wing documentarians carefully editing the only the most incriminating footage, countered only by low-IQ country music singers crooning my praises while in American Flag-colored cowboy hats.”
