    Medieval II: Total War taught me oh so much geography.

    Great article, I really think gaming is under rated. People seem to think it is a "sad" thing to do. However some games require a lot of skill and logical thinking with alot of trail and error involved to progress forward. Which when applied can be used in daily "real world" life.

    I would've chosen history to be either a Total War game or Civilization (I know you've used Civ for diplomacy). On another note, San Andreas for the effects of diet and exercise?

    I got a Jeopardy question right once because of Assassin's Creed II. It was a painting and the question was what the city was in the background. It was Venice, the buildings looked exactly like they did in AC. Also, how is sabotage a life skill? lol

    Hehe, I laughed at the "History?" remark with Assassin's Creed. Also, you could add Parenting, and maybe add a photo of Halo, or Call of Duty, or Battlefield. Seriously, they shouldn't be playing those games.

    why is there a picture of I want to be the guy for super meat boy?

    It was actually a shot of a hidden level from SMB - but the slide's been changed to accommodate those who might not recognize it :)

    Actually kind of a trick going on there, that's the bonus world you play in super meat boy to unlock the kid as a character. Not super intuitive using it as the image but it was probably the hardest bonus world in the the spirit of iwtbtg so fitting i guess.
