According to the Entertainment Software Association, the average age of a gamer is 33. On average adult males play 7.6 hours per week, and adult females play 7.4 hours per week. Do those figures surprise anyone? A lot of researchers have been looking at how to use video games for education and how to use them in classrooms to help kids learn and get more excited about school. There's some really interesting articles at http://www.learninginvideogames.com. Teachers are using Civ 4 and Roller Coaster Tycoon and the Sims to teach kids about history, german, etc. pretty cool..
I would say the average age of a gamer is like... 17..
It really depends on regions that you do this research on

GTA is educational!!
Ahem, i see no problem with games teaching kids to read and do math... I think its a good idea
Any game set in reality is educational, in some form.
Early Educational games are not a terrible idea, sounds pretty nice to me, actually.
It would be cool for kids in like u.s. history classes to have accurate fps games based on WWII, but like the revolution, or even the great war. :) A perfect example for WWII would be an altered version of Brothers in Arms.
One of the main things that sparked my intrest in WW2 was Battlefield. I think video games are highly educational and could be used in the classroom, with some changes to them, of course, but still highly appliable to the subject.

I've always wanted to see a Revolutionary-era FPS, or possibly an RTS.
Hell, I learned basic addition and subtraction from Sonic the Hedgehog.
