America's Army Cost $33 Million

According to the results of a a freedom of information act request, over the last decade, the United States Government has spent $32.8 million dollars on the America's Army video game series. The free-to-play PC and console shooters were created as recruitment tool for the U.S. Armed Forces.

Here is a year-by-year breakdown of what was spent on the game series:

  • 2000--$3,500,000
  • 2001--$5,600,000
  • 2002--$1,862,985
  • 2003--$2,600,000
  • 2004--$3,866,482
  • 2005--$1,288,552
  • 2006--$4,050,748
  • 2007--$2,788,137
  • 2008--$3,887,450
  • 2009--$3,395,702

The army is continuing to spend money on America's Army, so look for more updates in the coming months. I suggest you download and play the game, after all, if you're a U.S. taxpayer, you bought it already. But my question is: Does it work? Has anyone you know ever signed up for the army because of this (or any other) video game?
