Joystick Warriors
Video Games, Violence & the Culture of Militarism

Joystick Warriors provides a view into the latest research on the link between violent video games and violence in the real world. Using insights of media scholars, military analysts, combat veterans, and gamers, the film explores the immersive experience of gaming and examines the game industry's longstanding relationship with the U.S. military and the American gun industry, and how the games work to sanitize, glamorize, and normalize violence while cultivating dangerously regressive attitudes and ideas about masculinity and militarism.
