That's not a substitute for learning through desire and discovery. There are tons of games out there and they come and go as quickly as it takes one's wallet to empty and refill. Personally, I'd say that games which offer some educational benefits are like getting bonus points in one's learning endeavors but I'd never suggest buying games with the expectation that it might lead to a diploma.
I am looking for games for my son to play that are educational. He is 13 years old and gets his regular video game and tv time. He isn't keen on school (which is normal I suppose) but I saw him spout of some geography facts after playing Assassin's Creed. So I thought that there could be games just as entertaining but with an educational twist. Do you know of any? Help, please.
P.S. I found this How to Train your Dragon game that says it teaches science. Have any of you played it?Is it any good?
