Being in America's Army
10:03 AM | Anthony Wang | Comment on this story

Gamasutra has posted an extensive college paper regarding the popular America's Army game. The paper covers a wide range of topics from America's Army as a first person shooter to saving "billions" in military marketing and even Digital l33t skillz f0r the U$ @RmY. In addition, the paper anaylyzes the beginnings of the game, America's Army as an experimental tool, propaganda and much more.

America's Army is a logical outcome of the expanding military-entertainment complex and signals the successful linking of entertainment and defence. The U.S. army is just one of many institutions using games to promote its services. However, unlike many other companies thus far, the Army can claim that it has been very successful at it. Why it became such a success is only part of the question, but its implications are equally important.
Just a side note, the entire college paper is 238 pages long. However, it is an interesting read for any gamer and it is in Acrobat Reader format making scrolling through less daunting. Please follow the links below to read the article and to learn more information.
