I get pretty much exclusively Army ads on Twitch lately. I like to think the reasoning behind this ad campaign is the Army thinks:

A) Everyone watching gaming videos has no career path because they're gaming losers, so this is a good place to recruit people who won't make it to college

B) Gamers are violent because they play video games and are therefore good fits for the army

C) Both A & B

And that's kinda funny to me

    Totally. And have you seen a gamer ever actually follow orders? Haha

    Make no mistake though, a lot of people in the corps are gamers, but that's never why they joined.

    Or they think gamers are interested in guns and war, which isn't entirely wrong

    @rutee07 Nah I watch, which is still streaming technically

    @AlgoRythm Watching is not technically same as streaming. You watch so you are downloading. If you stream then you would be uploading.

    @zemaitis it's a download stream. They are both 100% genuine, organic, grass-fed streams. Streams don't care which direction they're going; they are still streams

    Armies even advertise on gaming conventions. With disgusting sentences comparing war with games. Of course they totally ignore that respawning is not possible in real life.

    Here is a German video about it: https://youtube.com/watch/...

    Tanks etc. have controls with strong resemblance to game controllers. It's advantageous when a tanker already knows how to use one.

    Or maybe they just have good results with gamers based on analytics?
