Modern Warfare 3: A statement on the US Economy through its players?

Things I have heard while playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 that weren’t the typical teenage-trash-talk-homophobic-slurs-BS:

“This is my last one; my kids are coming home soon, so it’s gotta be family-friendly [after that], know what I mean?”

“Son, I’m looking for him, but until I get there, you’re going to have to keep your head-down and aim more carefully.”

“The wife and I want another but I just got laid off and she doesn’t have much take-home so it’s not a good time”

“Oops, hold on, the baby’s crying, be right back”

“Gerber puts so many chemicals into their food, you really shouldn’t using it” (followed by much arguing)

Please note: Aside from that last one, none of these were isolated examples.  I have heard them (and variations thereof) on multiple occasions on different days at different times.

I always knew intellectually that the poor economy has contributed to a greater number of stay-at-home dads, I just wan’t expecting Modern Warfare to be the thing providing me with empirical evidence.
