Everyone has heard of the most popular educational (casual) video game of all time, The Oregon Trail, but what has happened to this popular 90's genre? It seems that most educational game IP's were founded in the early 90's including; The Oregon Trail, Munchers series (Word Munchers, Number Munchers, etc), Math Blaster, Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing, Where in the World is Carmen San Diego, and many more. Since the 90's little to no educational games have captivated the public like the educational IP's of the 90's. As games become more interactive, and companies like Turning Point Industries who are creating interactive software (primarily power point class room interaction) for the class room, can this genre be saved? What has happened to this popular gaming genre, could a next gen renaissance of educational gaming be around the corner? Could a PS3 or 360 be integrated into class rooms for educational games, only time will tell.
