Violent Video Games Touted As Learning Tool

All games, not just video games, can be harnessed as great learning tools. A game teaches planning, strategy, cooperation and even a bit of cunning. You learn the importance of keeping track of your resources and planning ahead. You know that, no matter how hard you try, that sometimes things aren't going to go in your favor.

Video games are ideal because their self contained (no pieces to lose), interactive and can be run at the user's own pace. Board games, on the other hand, are much more social.

I find it ludicrous that so many people who ought to know better still don't get how to design games for the female population. One only has to look at "unplugged" games like Monopoy, Apples to Apples and Trivial Pursuit to understand that games do not have to be gender specific. Even so, the video game industry continues to be overwhelmingly male, and immature at that. I speak from personal experience on that.
