about this item

The authors examine video games since 9/11, specifically war games like Call of Duty, Battlefield, Medal of Honor, and Syphon Filter and their allegorical function, and compare pre-9/11 video games that involve single-player first-person shooter fighting in World War II Europe with post-9/11 video games, namely online multi-player first-person shooter fighting in the “war on terror.” They discuss the city as the dominant landscape in post-9/11 games like Missile Command and Call of Duty: Black Ops; consumerism and the marketplace as sites for battle; how post-9/11 games, specifically Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, depart from the World War II theater and shift to Europe and the Middle East; how wartime enlistment posters and Army slogans have changed from a rhetoric of family to one of the individual soldier, using the example of Medal of Honor: Rising Sun; masculinity and the homosocial in games; and masculinity, consumerism, and technology in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
