NOT Educational, BUT fun!

I remember playing this game as a child and although it was quite fun (not sure how much my kid would like it now with all the other, more sophisticated options) it is really not an educational game. In fact, I am pretty disappointed in the kind of "educational" games kids have these days considering the tech capabilities.
