The brand i'm focusing on is the video game series Call of Duty.

For some video games violence translates into sales. At least, this is my opinion for now.

An article that I found in a quick Google search seems to support this idea.

Use keywords to search the library's research tools.

Topic statement: "I think some video games like Call of Duty advertise violence to sell the brand." 

                             Keywords:    video games        Call of Duty      advertise      violence
