The name Azriel in the Bible
There are three men named Azriel in the Bible, not counting the five named Azarel, which is a highly similar name, or Adriel, which is this name in Aramaic.
The Azriels of the Bible are:
Etymology of the name Azriel
The name Azriel consists of two elements. The first part of the name comes from the Hebrew verb עזר (azar), meaning to help or support:
Scholars have identified two separate roots עזר ('zr), probably because the meaning of one specific word — namely עזרה ('azara) — doesn't fit the others:
The verb עזר ('azar I), means to help, support. This verb is used in the Bible in all the expected ways, but, as HAW Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament notes, most often in military situations. During battle, human party's rush to each others aid (Ezekiel 30:8), but most often God is doing the helping (2 Chronicles 12:18).

this kinda thing is right up my alley. i find it VERY interesting for sure. and as long as their are "recent" posts being made here the good folks at ATS will be stopping by to take a look at what this is all about. It's still pretty early in the day here on the east coast, so I wouldn't fret too much.
But, enders game... that's actually a good correlation. very interesting to think about how a situation like that might be related to this kind of research.
i mean, essentially the message here is, stay smart & vigilant or die. keep your mental acuity up or become a lifeless robot that's going to get shot in the head by the military.
thing is, who knows what kind of triggers and subliminals are in that game. unfortunately, the game play clip is very short. I'm short that clip is just the icing on the cake so to speak. The rest of the game could incorporate god knows what kind of crazy sh!t. and they are obviously very interested in the effects of playing such a game over a long period of time. encouraging the user to play as much as they like, but not less than a certain amount.
also kind of brings to mind the movie toys with robin williams. in that movie the military has a secret op inside of a toy company to use children in war simulators that will control actual robots capable of being air mobile, ground mobile etc, shooting bullets, missiles etc. the children are sat in a huge room and each setup in a way to kind of isolate them from everything but the game. encouraged to reach the highest score they can but destroying and killing as much as possible.....
