Well, I'm a retired LEO and was a firearms instructor at the academy as well as my department and shoot a lot in various disciplines of competition so I feel somewhat qualified to answer. If you view it as training in general gun handling and shooting proficiency then yes, it does qualify as a bit of training. If you expect gun games to be the same as combat/defensive/tactics training then NO, they are not "real world" at all. They are games, fun games that you can learn from, but they do not teach anything that I would consider "real world" in regards to tactics. They give a lot of physical skill practice, but none of the mental skills that will take you home at the end of the day.
