Black Ops 2 Video Game and shooters are new types of war propaganda...
The Government wants young kids that play shooter video games to join the army. It's more people to easily kill. As someone said on this board, "cannon fodder". They've been using these army games for years to try and get kids to sign up. It's new age war propaganda and no one sees it.

Why do you guys thing Black Ops 2 was just released with a worldwide ad campaign showing people on tv shooting each other while trying to look cool and showing all these famous actors smiling and having fun. It's all programming for idiots. Especially now that the chances of there being an attack in the East are very high.

I'm guessing that Obama got chosen as the winner because he can easily get away with demanding a draft and going to war, if Mitt Romney won there would be a possible revolution since the minorities will not take orders from a rich white looking person. Not trying to be racist, but we live in a society that values physical appearance a lot.

Get your kids away from shooter video games or anything related to killing other people, this will only program them to value their lives less and go have "fun" in a battlefield. If you don't want your valued children dead then do them a favor and remind them of the things they have like family, necessities, and their minds.

Its the propaganda in those games that needs to be avoided.

For instance , the storyline of Black Ops 2 is rather disturbing and jam packed with "in yo face" propaganda

Re: Black Ops 2 Video Game and shooters are new types of war propaganda...
I think reality is allot different then video games.

The kids play video games because of score and friends.
They can beat friends or scores and that is the main goal.

It has nothing to do with real life.
I am sure some of these kids take the games to heart and actually learn how to react in situations from the game.
But it is probably a minority.
Most of the kids that play these types of games are just for the fun. Not for a type of reality horror show.
If they knew the reality of going out into battle and dying.
No respawn. I am sure they would not wanna play anymore.

Video games have always been fake reality. For fun.
If you take it too seriously then your a fucked up individual.
And you shouldn't be playing these types of games.

Because reality is allot worse than any game could come up with.

I would say otherwise. Just like a tv screen, video games do a great job at programming kids. I use to play role playing video games during the ps1 era like final fantasy and chrono cross. These games took patience and had a deep story and involved traveling to different places and meeting different breeds of creatures. Most games now are shooters and most focus on killing other people.

Have you seen the Black Ops 2 commercial? People just having fun while in the battlefield. Don't tell me that army games don't inspire kids to join the army. My cousin is also a good example. He's an 8 year old and he plays shooters as well as sports games. Talking to him is like talking to a fat pig. The kid is dumber then a sack of potatoes. It's sad to say since I love him, but all he thinks about is playing fake shooting, but at the same time his smart side comes out since I taught him to think a little about things and to question everything.

But media programs kids whether it be online games or tv.

Some of us see other shades of blue not just one. You might be right and army video games might just be there to make money, but I still think it inspired some kids to join the army.

Not saying fake shooting isn't fun, but just pointing out that media inspires kids to join the army and to sacrifice themselves. I've seen kids drenched in these shooters and their brains become like goo. Nothing there and no emotion. Just mention the parents that just raise their child infront of tvs with shooters one after the other. All the kid will think about is shooting things.

I'd rather kids play with plastic guns and shoot soft sponge things at each other then sit infront of a tv all day and shoot at things while blood comes out. It's not good for their brains and you know kids suck things in like sponges. They learn more when they are little then when they are big.

Re: Black Ops 2 Video Game and shooters are new types of war propaganda...
It is just a game, if anything it has educated me about different types of guns and parts of the world. I play it for the competition. I can play against anyone in the world at anytime of the day or play with them as teammates. I think people are over reacting to the violence, 150 years ago people would shoot each other on the streets and it was nothing to see a dead body laying around. It is OK for the media to show fighting and rioting in the streets of other countries and pictures of our dead ambassadors, and people get upset with a video game. War has always been around and always will be, there is no stopping it.
