* ''TopGear'': In one edition Jeremy Clarkson drove an [[CoolCar Acura NSX]] around Laguna Seca, a track he had done hundreds of times on the [=PlayStation=], and found it considerably more difficult in real life. Partly because he couldn't take the same risks when failure would mean time in hospital instead of restarting, of course.

** This led Jeremy Clarkson to try the same thing on an episode of ''TopGear''. Conclusion: it's possible to learn a track, but you can't take the same risks in real life that you take in a video game without risking injury or death (he was racing on Laguna Seca, a track with one of the scariest corkscrew turns in racing, and simply could not get over the fact that if he made a mistake in real life, he could end up dead).

** Deconstructed in ''Anime/SwordArtOnlineTheMovieOrdinalScale''. Where playing the augmented reality game requires use of a player's physical body. Kirito's real body isn't very fit and initially has trouble keeping up in battles, even tripping over his own feet in the first boss fight. It takes a TrainingMontage from Suguha to get him in better condition to compete.

* ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'': Possibly subverted. In "Now You See Him...", Static and Gear have to land a sabotaged plane safely, due to the fact that the pilot was tied up and scissors were the one thing Gear did not have with him. He took the controls, claiming he played more than 200 hours on a flight sim video game. However, one of the jet engines exploded at that point and he panicked, saying that never happened in the game.

* Brutally subverted in ''{{ComicBook/Revolutionaries}}''. The Axalon crew were put through simulations of combat and brainwashed to think they were Autobots and Decepticons as part of a warped experiment by Shockwave. They fought with all the skill of real soldiers... as long as they were in the controlled, fatality-free war games Shockwave set up for them. When UsefulNotes/WorldWarI came around, their false memories swiftly unraveled in the face of an actual war, leading to most of them dying. The narration explicitly notes [[RealityEnsues no amount of make-believe warfare could prepare them for the real thing]].

* And the US Army definitely commissioned Atari to make a modified version of ''[[VideoGame/{{Battlezone|1980}}'', with additional gunnery controls for targeting practice. This is probably the earliest example of this.
