    Obviously this won't change the people who already hate video games though.

    So? As illustrated by the listed games, they're educational value only becomes apparent when the games are heavily modded for a specific purpose. Very few games have any educational merit in their inherent form. And even in the heavily modded forms, their usefulness is mild, at best. You (and the author) are making a GRAND LEAP in making the assertion that video games irreplacable, world-saving devices.

    So what exactly are you learning from SMG, MP3, and SSBB?

    Can we use quote tags around other people's work? Until I got to the link, I thought you wrote that article. (And I'm hoping your intentions weren't for other people to think the same)

    When making a thread there is a speech bubble above the top of the box you're posting in. When you put your mouse over it, it should say:

    SMG: The physics of gravity

    MP3: To learn how to observe objects in their nature and figure out their purpose. Also how to get around obstructions(mental and physical)

    SSBB: To be able to adapt to new scenarios(aka stratagys) and learn how to defeat your opponents.

    Of course those are all for certain carraers (SMG scients MP3 Photographer SSBB Military Specialist)

    I think i won this arguement huh
