Default America's Army Funded by Taxes

America's Army

Quote:
The free-to-play shooter America’s Army, meant to act as a recruiting tool for the U.S. military, cost $32.8 million over eight years.

The annual, year-by-year budget for the promotional game was revealed by a Freedom of Information Act request by Gamespot. The game’s original budget was meant to be much lower; at first it was said that the America’s Army project would spend $7 million over five years. But the series has expanded beyond its original scope: The game is now on its third sequel, and had retail versions were eventually released to stores.

The ballooning game budget might seem excessive, especially considering the fact that genuinely profitable games have similar costs. But ten years of Super Bowl ads (at a rate of nearly $3 million for thirty seconds) could easily have cost as much.
I'm not really sure how i should feel about this, but Skynet and The Matrix come to mind for some reason.

I thought everyone knew this?

The way it was described to me was that everyone paid the equivalent of a penny, maybe less, that went into the game (At least when it first came out) which meant it was free for citizens because they had paid for it with their taxes.

It does seem to be quite a bit of money for a game though.

Government made. Massive pensions balloon development costs.

The game's actually not that bad. I haven't played it since the first edition though. It was certainly heavy on the realism bit.

Last I played it was pretty much like the original, but they added a bit with a rocket launcher. I forget the specifics of what it's called, but it was the one that can send rockets high in the air to then hit target from above, making it easy to hit guys behind cover, as well as the regular point-and-shoot mechanic. You switched between both.

You should feel that way about ALL murder simulators. They train you to be killers. God-bless our country for turning this evil medium into a force for good.
