I think common sense doesn't understand something:
I think we can all agree that games that include history in game play will get the player to remember things about history since they are relevant due to the fact that they are in the game. Basically what I'm saying is:
History Lessons + Fun = LEARNING!!!!!!
What they think is when you add
History lessons + Fun
but then you add
Then you get
History Lesson + Fun + Violence = THEY LEARN NOTHING!
I don't know but I think I learned a lot about the Vietnam War from Call of Duty Blackops. For example, now I know that the entire war revolved around a poison gas called Nova 6 and that they needed to throw it into the sea of pigs or else Makarov will keep shooting innocent Russians in airports. See!
Playing is learning, soooo.
History Lesson + Violence + A WHOLE LOTTA FUN= THE FUTURE OF AMERICAN EDUCATION!!!
