7: America’s Army
While being a fairly realistic game, this one isn’t really a simulation. And if we’re honest, it’s more of an elaborate advertisment than a game. But the US Army spent top Dollar on this one, and so it is a bit more than just your regular advergame. America’s Army offers insight into the action in the field, while introducing players to the Army’s core values. Essentially, this is a fairly realistic team based tactical multiplayer shooter, that’s supposed to make the Army interesting for young men. Given that there were two sequels and console ports, it must have had an impact on recruit numbers.
