This picture is from Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon. This puts the player in a battle environment with high tech equipment. This shows the player to guide a unit of men tactically, while fighting with ones own character. This can be seen as a tool of recruitment, showing the player how to tactically accomplishes different missions and in different ways, like that in "BioShock". You also value your men in the unit, which one must deploy wittingly and safely in order to help you in you missions.
