Your Thoughts About Educational Video Games For Child & Teens

I think  that education games could really benefit some of our children today since schools seem to be not active as they were before COVID 19

Even though I had other games growing up sometimes I would play educational video games. The kind that were my favorite were were 2 Vtech Laptops one had a like a Gameboy color-like screen. and the older, red one had an original Gameboy like screen, they were both like simple computers and I even remember one even having a phone jack for online play,  this was back in the early 1990's. They had games built into them and the older one I think even had a cartridge slot, Not all the games were educational games in both of these laptops.

I learned how to spell and read from them, and do simple math. each game had 6 levels of difficulty. but I only played them when I was vary young.

 now I don't bother but I will admit I feel like I want to play those Vtech laptops again, since the ones I had were not kiddy like, they even had a 2 player option for couch coop or competition. and they were also meant for older kids as well. they were powered by huge batteries, and lasted a long time too.

One of them had red, and white plastic. And the other was black and white plastic, I can't find any photo on the internet for them but I'd show them to you if I could.

 here is the 1st one I had that was red and white





Here is my 2nd toy I got when I was older only I had the black and white plastic on the outside not red white and blue

(PERSONAL PHILOSOPHY)
Life on earth is only temporary and If you believe in God and do good in life. You can continue to live with any possessions  you desire, in the afterlife, as long as you do good and don't do evil in real life.

This was quite possibly the worst game on the SNES.

When you say educational games, I say let the kiddos play Assassin's Creed. Plenty to learn there!

Educational games are for nerds!  Which I was one, so it made sense, heh.  I grew up playing a few educational games as a kid at school, like in 4th grade, I remember playing "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego" and really loving that game and probably a few others.  Also in the 90's I played Math Blaster and stuff like that.  I remember checking out Mario is Missing, but definitely didn't like it.  I can't remember any other "educational" games I played outside of school, but I'm probably just spacing on them as I'm sure I played one or two others.
