Carl Williams writes, "Edutainment titles are a staple of gaming. Going all the way back the early days of both console and personal computer gaming. The problem edutainment has always faced is that it was OBVIOUSLY edutainment. Much like licensed titles, but worse, edutainment titles not only miss the mark in gameplay but content too. This is why Typing of the Dead is such a revelation for edutainment in general. All of the problems that edutainment titles have faced in the past are almost completely eradicated. How? Zombies."
