By "brainwash" I don't mean broadcasting mind control rays through everyone's TV. I mean, using subliminal messages to alter the way you think and brainwash techniques like that.
FPS games are probably the most popular type of games, or any shooter game for that matter. Action movies are really popular as well. Look at the rercruitment adverts on TV. In the British army's case, they show you all these slow motion explosions and awesome equipment with some pretty awesome dubstep in the background. Imagine how this could appeal to a frequent COD player?
In movies or TV shows, whenever a Marine or some sort of American soldier comes on screen, they make them out to be this awesome person who knows what the fuck is up and can save the day.
I mean, I support our troops for risking their lives and all, but I don't support who and what they are fighting for. The last thing I want to see is a bunch of kids in my age group blindlessly joining the army, because everyone is doing it and it looks awesome on TV.
Also, look at America. They supposedly have the most powerful military. We are nothing but cattle to our governments. Why wouldn't they brainwash their citizens to join their army? It's not like their soldiers just pop out of thin air.
