Dear AA players,

I am in contact with the development team and am looking for players of the game to answer some questions for me. The Dissertation is for my BACHELORS degree in TV and Media theory. It is based around the question of Militarism and video games, focusing specifically on Americas Army. With the dissertation research I retrieve I hope to discover if Americas Army has influenced players to join the U.S Army.

Callum

Make a survey and post the link here. You're not the first to do this.

Are you conducting similar surveys on the general population and on players of other video games? It seems to me you'd need to for comparison & control.

It also seems to me that you shouldn't tell us what you're trying to determine. You're removing the blind from the experiment.

But, yeah, put up a survey link if you want results.

Thanks for your reply,
No, I'm not. I am basing it on Americas Army due to its intended purpose as a recruitment tool I want to challenge previous academic views on the 'propaganda' of the game. I noticed that a lot of academics don't partake in audience analysis, I am looking into the production and the media affects of the game.

Also, would you be available to interview, or do you know anyone who would be available for an interview? VIA skype or email?
Should take no more than 10 minutes long.

Callum

This is what we college students (and former college students) call an "easy A". I did a survey on another topic :shock:

But after playing AA, I do have some tendencies to want to kill people after I'm dead.

This is potentially being true, I am in the UK so many scholars at my university know about it. Would you be up for an interview?
