Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare trailer: "People don't want freedom. They want boundaries, rules, protection."
Advanced Warfare, which has been in development for three years, is set in a future where technology and military practice have combined to create a new kind of war. Most military missions have been outsourced to private military corporations (PMCs). In the middle of it all: the villainous Johnathan Irons, head of Atlas Corporation, the largest PMC.

"Democracy is not what these people need. Hell, it's not even what they want. People don't want freedom. They want boundaries, rules, protection—from invaders and from themselves," says Irons, voiced by actor Kevin Spacey. "People need a leader who can give them both the support and the constraints to keep chaos at bay. You give them that and they'll follow. And that's where I come in."

They're clearly trying to influence public opinion with shit like this.
Also, today Electronic Arts announced a new spin-off in the Battlefield series, entitled 'BF: Hardline'. Whereas the Battlefield series typically focuses on military affairs, 'Hardline' will be a police-themed entry to the series.

Yay for now-ruined franchises being gutted and ruined in favor of more Police State propaganda, amirite gaiz?

they might be simply referring to the gameplay:

you MUST run along this path, if you step outside the boundary the mission fails.

it's not like it's open-world sandbox game huh.

I think he's supposed to be the bad guy. I think you're supposed to stop him but I could be wrong.

Nope, this quote was pulled from the reveal trailer for Advanced Warfare, the quote being a piece of dialogue from one of the game's main characters.
It's in reference to the story and nothing more.

My jaw seriously hit the fucking floor when I first watched this.

Yeah, that's the impression I get, too.
Still, they decided to include this quote in the launch trailer for the game, knowing that millions of people would see it due to Call of Duty's immense popularity.

This:

"Democracy is not what these people need. Hell, it's not even what they want. People don't want freedom. They want boundaries, rules, protection—from invaders and from themselves," says Irons, voiced by actor Kevin Spacey. "People need a leader who can give them both the support and the constraints to keep chaos at bay. You give them that and they'll follow. And that's where I come in."

Means this:

you MUST run along this path, if you step outside the boundary the mission fails.

It's possible that they put this in to create the very reaction you're having to it. They want you to be angry at this character and convince you to buy the game so you can defeat him.
What if these games aren't meant to trick people in to believing that a police state is good and instead make these characters out to be the bad guys to reinforce the idea that this is wrong?

Maybe, but it's not convincing me personally to buy the games. I haven't touched Call of Duty since probably 2010. It seems like carefully placed dialogue as a force of suggestion to me, but again, that's just my opinion.

I'd like to believe that, I really would. But I'm relatively convinced that TPTB have their hands in all forms of media, video games not excluded. Why wouldn't they integrate their ideas for mental conditioning in these medium when they do every other medium?

They easily could have their hands in everything. But it could just as easily be paranoia that leads you to think this way.
Think about it like this.
In a lot of games, we use Russia, China, or North Korea as the enemy. They add a realistic enemy to the game but also condition the player to see them as the real life enemy. So why then would making a power hungry elitist an enemy condition people that they are the good guys?
