(December 18, 2012) Video games are one of the fastest growing industries right now, with franchises such as Halo bringing in revenues of over 3 billion dollars.
Governments are increasingly trying to twist the business into a brainwashing machine to promote their agendas, just as has been done with the movie industry.
Why are video games such a perfect tool for governments and why are governments stepping up their usage of them?
Because the Internet generation now have easy access to all information and points of view. Governments don't want kids using the Internet to learn about these things. So governments need to keep kids distracted and under constant brainwashing.
A typical American kid might go to school all morning learning about how great America is and how dangerous the rest of the world is, then come home and play some video games like Strategy 2012.
This game was free during the Presidential campaign and tells you who you should vote for and how political campaigns are run (or at least how the government would like you to think it's done).
