Oh totally, all these military games really help the military ... then these kids join the military and think it's all a game and get killed.

Yes, it is.

Yes, and the media loves to take it all in, and tell us what they want us to hear!

Meh. It kinda sucks and I don't think real war would be like that.

No, I don't think they do. I do not think it is a game, and very few 'kids' i know think that it is, especially not the ones who would even consider joining the military.
That said, it is a recruitment tool, but I fail to see how it is propaganda in any way... please explain your reasoning if you think so.

Of course it is. They make being in war seem like great fun... It's very sad but it's a great way to get young recruits.

Ha!

I play these multi-player games like counter-strike and such sometimes. I'm OK. I figure I die for every 4 to 5 guys I kill.

But I think to myself in real life I only get one chance. No respawning in Baghdad.

The Army even admitted it was
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 1/2/07 - 6:27:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
i think it is
but i love the game
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 1/2/07 - 7:22:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
I loved the game when I played it, and I don't feel like joining the army, hell after seeing someone get thrown off a bridge from a point blank sniper shot I wouldn't want to join at all.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 1/2/07 - 8:04:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
Complete propaganda. I resent that my tax dollars are being spent on something like this.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 1/2/07 - 8:42:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
Why does anything to do with joining the army have to be propoganda? It's good for some people and it's a good and patriotic thing to do.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 1/2/07 - 10:21:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
The game is propaganda because it glorifies war an uses that discourse as a recruiting tool.

I've never played this game, but, RainboxSix Vegas makes me want to sneak around and shoot people.

No, just a pretty run-of-the-mill propaganda tool.

Really, what's so ingenious about it?

Absolutly yes! Politicians and government officials are using the fact that kids are addicted as all hell to video games for their advantage.

Its not patriotic to join the army if the war you fight in is a pointless waste of money. It wasnt before Saddam was found, but now it is.


BTW, After playing this game, I seriously dont wanna join the army, I get killed like every two seconds.

I hate this game, but it looks like some kind of thing to drag stupid people, who believe this exactly like the army.
But without the intense moments, and sad moments.

My cousin loves that game.
