A brief article was published by forbes.com. In this article Side Meier talks about people actually learning from videogames.
People actually learn fairly effectively from computer games. Someone who plays Civilization probably has a better understanding of some of the dynamics that go into the history of the world. We've heard from teachers and students. We heard about the guy who aced his geography class because he'd played Pirates, so he knew every city in the Caribbean and every island.
