Video Games Incorporated In College Classes

T-Hill writes: I’m typically not the one to say I told you so but right about now I think I’ll pull the I told you so out.

Now ask a gamer about a game from ten years ago there is a much higher chance that they’ll remember what happened.

Games like Assassin's Creed are so historic....

But like a history lesson, I never paid any attention to it. Much. I mean, like a history lesson, I know bits of history :P

I always found certain video games to be very educational. Assassin's Creed, like Kran mentioned above for starters. I learned quite a bit when it came to historical facts. As well as Tomb Raider; with Legend and Underworld, I learned about King Arthur and Thor, respectively.

I remember learning a bunch of names of ancient civilizations from Age of Empires.

I think games can be more educational then books because (A) if your playing a game your having fun and you will remember the content you play because of the fun you are having and (B) you would have a reason to want to learn. Maybe a game can incorperate a quiz at the end of each level and if you fail the quiz you have to reply the level.
