No, not at all. I enjoy some video games as much as the next guy, but there is absolutely no substitute for the real thing. There are simply too many conditions that you would have to replicate for it to be accurate. I can't imagine how a video game could leave you without some sort of bad habit as a result of there being no atmospheric conditions, no recoil, difficulty simulating proper sight picture, and it being unlikely that anyone makes or would make a properly weighted replica that would also lose weight as you shoot it. Granted, the last one is a minor difference, but in shooting, minor differences are major. I know that the idea of something you can practice with that doesn't involve range fees or ammunition costs is tantalising, but I just don't think it would ever be worth it, except for pure entertainment value. And the real thing is more entertaining anyway. Sorry.
