In this study we verified how military simulation game like airsoft affects aggressive and altruistic behavior, and do resistance to stress and job stress exposure moderate any of these variables. We applied aggression and altruism questionnaries on players of simulation military game airsoft (N =119) before and after the game. We also included questionnaires of resistance to stress and exposure to job related stress. Results showed that manifest verbal aggression and altruistic behavior have decreased and manifest physical aggression, inner-sustaining and selfish behavior have incerased after the game. We found significant interaction of main effects aggression and team membership on latent verbal aggression. We also found significant interaction of resistance to stress and aggression on manifest and latent verbal aggression. Also, players who claimed they had higher exposure to job stress showed higher level of aggressive behavior on all five modes, and higer level of receptive giving, inner-sustaining and selfish behavior.
