Les jeux vidéo américains de l’après 11 septembre 2001 : la guerre faite jeu, nouveau terrain de propagande idéologique ?

Abstract : Video games that directly or indirectly address real events transmit a certain vision of such events to their users. Be it thanks to the narratives on which they are based, the images users interact with, or gameplay and game structure specificities, some video games are inspired by real events as much as they (re)build those through the play experiences that they propose.In order to better understand this dynamic, this dissertation proposes a method of analysis that takes into account the three key components that constitute video games (narrative, audiovisual, game and play). This method is then applied to the three Call of Duty: Modern Warfare games (2007-2011). The contexts of production and reception are also taken into account in this analysis.This dissertation highlights the fact that, in addition to the exaltation of a militaristic, nationalist and patriotic ethos, the three Call of Duty: Modern Warfare games strive to convey a particularly positive image of American military actions abroad and of the adoption of a preventive warfare doctrine in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks.The method applied to this corpus of games is also meant to propose an approach to this medium that takes into account its globality and complexity in order to better understand its persuasive possibilities.
