    jajajaja

  2. John E. Bredehoft says

    Back when software actually included user manuals, the user manual for SimCity included an appendix that discussed the reality of city planning.

  3. Brett Bjornsen says

    Well, I know I'm pretty much ready for any zerg infestation, zombie outbreak, or intergalactic diplomatic crisis, to name a few things…

  4. Corrado Topi says

    +Amanda Blain As long as the developers had the correct information in the first place and did not make it up along the way ….

  5. mick mochan says

    yup too right

  6. Hannes Rothe says

    I learned pretty much about history from the early civilization games 🙂

  7. Guus de Swart says

    Denk niet ha ha

  8. Amanda Blain says

    Quest for Glory taught me lots about mythology with their funny stance on things.. it was great 🙂

  9. Luigi Castellitto says

    Yes! 😀

  10. Yifat Cohen says

    lol! and navigation, and aiming…

  11. Ashton Gellar says

    go ezio!

  12. Robert Kitzmiller Jr says

    Lol

  13. Kimberly Unger says

    There's a sh*t ton of stuff I know because, when it popped up in a game I said "That can't be right" and went and looked it up.  Google is my vice 😉

  14. Anastacio Guerrero says

    Tetris has all the answers to life.

  15. Michael O'Reilly says

    I have all sorts of history knowledge from video games, +Amanda Blain, and lots from Saturday morning cartoons, as well, back when there were Saturday morning cartoons…

  16. Ted Okatcha says

    Assassin's Creed…Titan Quest (mythology), even Age of Mythology spin-off of Age of Empires did wonders for me :). I really could go on and on… Skyrim in itself can even make people go brush up on Norse mythology.

  17. Eran Kriegshauser says

    I read an article where a 12 year old boy and his sister were hiking and came across a moose. They played dead to avoid the moose. Where attain this knowledge? World of Warcraft…level 30 Hunter feign death skill.

  18. deus exMachina says

    I know almost every Battlefield weapon used by the US and Russian armed forces.  Thank you BF, BF2 and BF3.

  19. Jeff Chapman says

    and they say violent video games have no redeeming value…..

  20. James Misel says

    I learned alot of words from their adaptations into Pokemon names…

    And, as +Hannes Rothe said, the Civilization games…

  21. Slavo Herman says

    They may easily get some historical facts wrong in the games, but sometimes it is enough to throw some spark, awaken the interest – and you can go on from there yourself: Google, Wikipedia, anything…

  22. Sean P. O. MacCath-Moran says

    I learned how to pack things in to crates REALLY tightly by playing Tetris… does that count? =oP

  23. Chris Aultman says

    Contra on the Waterfall Level.
    It taught me that you can't trust anyone. Not even your best friend.

  24. Adrian Martin says

    +Amanda Blain …love the success kid meme! …Metal Gear Solid taught me all about how conspiracy theories from the real world can make for one helluva jaded soldier…lol

  25. Richard Armstrong says

    ZORK!!  loved that game it may even have taught me to read hahahah 🙂

  26. Zeke Stockbridge says

    I learned where all of the touristy/historical spots in LA were and how to drive to them from playing LA Noire.

  27. Tosapol Bonfoey says

    ooo sim city, i look at it like this , if  city planners cant even figure out sim city how can they figure out  a real life one?

  28. Mauri Kassick says

    Alpha Centauri, SimCity, Civilization, Sid Meier's Pirates, … my whole childhood was filled with games, and they taught me a lot. They made me curious and interested on a variety of subjects that I don't think I would otherwise.

    Games with great music make young music students to try and replay those tunes; and some reproductions on Youtube are very good! Others create upon those pieces, expanding them.

    And even the new games that put a greater emphasis on "action", like Mirror's Edge and Assassin's Creed … they are inspiring kids to try out physical activities like Parkour.

    Video games help kids because they're fun. And they make learning fun.

  29. Pete Karas says

    The games I played didn't help, road racing and rally racing and I ended up at the drag strip?

  30. Sean P. O. MacCath-Moran says

    Did anyone here play nethack? I learned a lot about the Tolkien cannon from that… buuuuut it never helped pass a test, so I s'pose it doesn't count. =oP

  31. Jamie Russman says

    Civilization Revolution

  32. Jonathan Moore says

    HAHAHAHA!!!!

  33. Clayton Reeves says

    pharaoh did that quite a bit.

  34. Nicoletta Degli Innocenti says

  37. Gatto NineNineNine says

    I improve my poor english language !…
    =^.^=

  38. Cara Schulz says

    Sharing that with my son.  I was talking about a historical person and was surprised when he knew who it was.  Yeah, Assassins Creed.

  39. bruce bryan says

    Thats cool,great history lesson- and a great game!

  40. Nazily Zaza says

    I learned more about WW2 thx to FarCry 3 so yeah

  41. Junius Jones says

    Nice.

  42. Christopher Li-Reid says

    if you get your history lessons from video games – you need to stay in school.  🙁

  43. Amanda Blain says

    Guess you havent been in school lately 🙂

  44. Christopher Li-Reid says

    apparently not because people are getting history lessons from age of empires and learning to play dead around moose (they're more scared of you and unless they have young around will bolt)

  45. dillon whittier says

     I went to franklin high school last year i have a job now

  46. Karl W. says

    The point is not really about learning from games, but more about playfully/unconciously learn about things from games. Which gives more impact to the brain ? Sitting down memorizing names of characters in a historical event, or you unconciosly remember because you reenacted the assasination event in a video game.

  47. Allen Hildebrandt says

    Xenogears.  Xenosaga.  Lots of science and physics, religion and philsophy, psychology and eschatology in both the original (Xenogears) and it's three "Pre"quels (Xenosaga).

    People hated Xenosaga because there was more plot than gameplay (A lot of passive cutscene watching).  I love games that are nose deep in lore.

  48. Christopher Li-Reid says

    true – i will admit to that provided the information is correct, otherwise we'll have more annoying americans to listen to brag about how they think they won world war 2 😛

  49. Kyle Lees says

    so godamn true

  50. Shamar Roby says

    Yes!

  51. Amanda Blain says

    that is indeed the point +Karl W.  🙂 spot on

  52. gamal agamy says

    Nice

  53. brian james says

    Sounds like something my so would say.

  54. Gus Fring says

    yea same with the crusades and the revolutionary war

  55. Neill Ruddy says

    Brilliant, just started playing the games on pc after being a hardcore rts and ommorpg/rpg gamer. Great games!

  56. Michele Flores says

    Ha so very true!

  57. shlomo tuttle says

    that game is epic

  58. Bobby Donald says

    deffinitly ie amm da bes wit spellin wit maario teeches typping

  59. Tyler Yohe says

    Just wanted to say how awesome it is to hear people saying this stuff.

    My dev team brought in 4 PhDs for our #scibehindscifi panel in hopes of using our games sci-fi to do the same with science that assassin's creed did with history (fingers crossed).

    lol btw – how has no one mentioned Oregon Trial?! Building hatred for dysentery and cholera since 1981. 🙂

  60. Monika S says

    had that test last semester in world history – stayed up all night cramming in multiplayer 😉

  61. Lucas Speer says

    mw2 has helped me on russia

  62. Ramón González says

    I recently heard about http://www.gamesforchange.org/ and I think they are creating something great. what do you think +Amanda Blain ?

  63. brenda trejo says

    that funny

  64. Isaac L says

    I keep telling my parents. 🙂

  65. Tyler Yohe says

    +Ramón González G4C is pretty cool.  Something else to check out if you're into the entertainment that strives for getting the facts right – check out the 'Science and Entertainment Exchange'.  Its an organization that pairs the ent industry up with scientists, etc.

  66. Justin Rens says

    When I was in Florence and Venice I could actually find my way by remembering the game. Odd I always found towers

  67. Alex Kellogg says

    Don't need to know the American Revolution. I have Assassin's Creed 3.

  68. david hargrave says

    I keep telling my teachers…

  69. Jim flechter Monasque says

    What a kid!!!

  70. Jimbo Rizza says

    I credit rpgs for having developed higher reading and writing skills growing up!

    I can't read anything without the FF1 battle tune playing in my head as a side effect, though!

    There is always something to learn, as long as one doesn't believe he already knows it all.

  71. sophiarose westcott says

    i don't play video games, but i'v been all over italy.

  77. Hannah MacLean says

    hahha!

  78. Ryan Miller says

    true story

  79. Ryan Light says

    Final Fantasy VII taught me the most important lesson about marriage.

    No matter how much materia you try to add to your armor & sword, you will ALWAYS lose to an angry wife. I used to call my ex "Sephi-Wife" after the game's main baddie, Sephiroth.

  80. Jonathan Harbour says

    Civilization series helped with history

  81. milesofgo oglecensoring says

    GO AWAY . . . PIECE OF CRAP YOU TURNED MY CHANNEL INTO . .

  82. Monika S says

    Most important thing AC taught me: where there's a tall building and an eagle, there will be a haystack > leap of faith! (hasn't failed me yet)

  83. Christopher Ballenger says

    Minecraft helped me with geology.

  84. Joshua Lawrence says

    Yea all the cheats you need

  85. Nick Zazzaro says

    oh yeah all those WW2 games im an historian

  86. Christopher Rowley says

    Skyrim taught me about dragons and magic. Deus Ex taught me all corporations are scum. And Postal taught me it's ok to go crazy as long as Bin Laden gets his head stuck up an elephants ass in the end.

  87. Bubba Franklin says

    yes but no

  88. Noah Hill says

    I know all about the American revolution from playing AC3.

    Super Mario Bros taught me about history.  Rpg's taught me poems.  Xenogears had so much history in it, it was incredible, I still have not been able to finish it yet.

  100. Joshua Lawrence says

    How to spot a child predator dungeon master?

  110. Andre Jones says

    Wow Lmao

  111. Andrue Gonzales says

    that's funny

  112. Justen Robertson says

    The trouble is when you don't know the difference between what is a fictional element and what is a historical element. Apparently a lot of Dan Brown fans have this same problem. 🙂

  113. Sulieman Mansouri says

    Sid Meier's civilization.

  114. Joshua Moser says

    I remember passing history tests by playing Age of Empires…

    Though Oregon trail was misleading as to the prevalence of dysentery.

  115. choic rufus says

    there most be a solution working together

  116. Robert Soyars says

    When I was 7 or so, I remember getting "Kid Icarus" for Nintendo.  Instead of calling your life "health" or "life", it was called endurance. I had no idea what that meant, so I learned what the word was. Kid Icarus also taught me what an eggplant was. That's when I learned they are just as horrible as pickles!

  117. Brenden McCarley says

    This is too funny!!!!!!!

  118. Anjo Cerdeña says

    Age of Empires! My poor memory had a lot of help when AOE had me remember all those 'heroes'.

  119. Justen Robertson says

    +Joshua Moser "Though Oregon trail was misleading as to the prevalence of dysentery." hahah, seriously laughed out loud at that.

  120. Joshua Garcia says

    dude lmao are u serious about AoE? never played it but i thought AC was the most accurate game…lols u should write the creators a thank you letter…

  121. Stuart Adamson says

    Skool Daze. Enough said.

  122. Žiga Pirih says

    Actually, games aren't that good at teaching you facts. To dispute Skyrim guy first: Skyrim? That aren't dragons, that are wyverns. Not to mention overly simplified magic, which is even greater moot point:  If magic actually existed IRL, it would be more like Java in the best case scenario (regarding simplicity), but it's more likely that it would be like C and most likely something like BASIC or Assembly. Skyrim got everything wrong.

    Anyway, Sim City (4 Deluxe) was pretty awesome — I figure people don't like having an army base or a federal prison in their city. Minecraft taught me that punching a tree few times will get you a cubic meter of wood a few things, too (Although it's mostly trollscience). Eragon taught that in unlikely case that game maker approaches me with an offer to make a game after my story (if I ever finish it) I should refuse it.

    Also — that's a bit off-topic — Assassin's Creed increased my eagerness for reading Alamut (book on which AC is really vaguely based on).

  123. Sam Pack says

    Some games do have good history in it.. Ac3 L.A Noire etc. Because in school history, I know for a "fact" they don't teach u all history. America is full of lies & twists. = fact.

  124. Michael Brokate says

    Total War Empire, Civ 3&4, and Age of Empires 2&3, and to a degree Blazing Angels

  125. Raul Robles says

    I would ace that test!!!

  126. Lisa Johnson says

    Total war screwed me up a bit because APPARENTLY egypt and the holy land was never owned by the Scotts.

  127. Michael Brokate says

    +Lisa Johnson Which one were you playing?

  134. Allen Hildebrandt says

    +Sulieman Mansouri Civilization? I'm ashamed.  Everyone knows if you mention Cid Meier you mention ALPHA CENTAURI.

  135. Brett Jones says

    Video games & history… I'd say Medieval Total War II. It would show screens as you progressed through the campaign that mentioned a historical event for that year. Also the map showed the different regions of Western Europe, some of which I still remember.

  136. Darryl Shaw says

    revolutionary war-assassins creed III

  149. Philo Adrovia says

    If you're learning just as much history in your video games as you are in school, I'd advise you to get a refund. Your teacher is failing you.

  150. Sebastian Vasquez says

  165. porf remigio says

    yeah also GTA VCS helped me with East of Eden

  166. feri hartanto says

    ACCCUUnNNn ! yeeaaahhhhh….

  167. Ghosty Kips says

    This goes way back before video games. I developed a serious interest I medieval Europe and feudal Japan from playing Dungeons & Dragons in the 1970s, for example. That said … Sid Myer is my hero. 🙂

  168. Jabari Broughton says

  173. Ftlqed Buster says

    Never fight a ninja turtle, wacko drivers get even crazier when you stick you head out the window, "stoP ITTT!", then ramming parts off their car.  Tech tree's only go so far, and then your star trek 6.

  174. Hayley Stocker says

    cool sounds ligit

  175. Jeff Ehrhart says

    Gonna have to get that game now.

  176. Hayley Stocker says

    i havent played that game ever

  177. Jarratt Richardson says

    It's because of the gnaws we love to play, we want to learn more about it. For example, I read all there is to read on Italy from people to buildings in AC2/B/R and about the Revolutionary war in AC3. Even out of the game I'm interested in some non-fiction TV programmes about that era because of the games I play because I want to know more about it. (I also like to learn about other games I play but the AC series was the best example).

  178. Hayley Stocker says

    okay

  179. Martin Omander says

    Railroad Tycoon 2 taught me basic corporate finance (stocks, bonds, when to issue each, when to get out of debt, when to buy back stock). It also taught me to draw really straight lines. The trains went faster that way.

  180. Hayley Stocker says

    awsome straight lines

  181. Jasmine Mauras says

    wow……… just wow!

  182. Hayley Stocker says

    i know

  183. Matthew Dey says

    Oregon Trail, learned lots from that game. Was actually my main motivating factor behind learning to read. Lots of good memories. Much of what I learned from Oregon Trail was something I saw again in American History.

  184. Ethan Price says

    hilarious

  185. Hayley Stocker says

    gfeyc3riTGR32YUktriyWK

  186. Kenny Rodgers says

    No reason learning can't be fun…IF the writers/developers are dilligent in developing the games. Perhaps this is what is currently missing in our educational system!

  187. Terry Looney says

    What.a.wounder.frer.thing.

  200. Scott Baker says

    Learned tons about 3D Modeling, Texturing, Rigging, and animation from Second Life (if you can call that a game) and all of the above have helped me immensely in my day to day work.

  293. Federico Cesaroni says

    I believe, +Christopher Li-Reid and +Nicoletta Degli Innocenti, that the real point is that often video games can ignite a spark of curiosity about something we would have never payed attention to. This may lead to buy books and gather information about that topic thus learning to discern fictional facts from the actual events and, why not, we could even become fans of that very topic. And it all started witha a video game. I mean…today I am a big fan of the "Arthurian cycle", I've read many books about it (including Thomas' Malory "Le mort d'Arthur") and it all began with an old point and click game from Sierra 😀
