My parents always told me never to play violent games. Then, once when I was 6, I did. After I recovered from the bouts of terrified shouting, I found myself transformed into a huge fan of Goldeneye 64 and Doom.
Lazy Game Reviews does Edutainment Month every April, and I thought The Examined Life (of Gaming) should do that too, at least once. It’s a fun tradition, and since I went through the public school system as a kid, I spent a lot of my youth playing games with math in them.
