First it was libraries now it’s on school campuses. Pretty soon there’s gonna be games built into toilets, cause taking a dump is boring! (Although handhelds relieve the tension somewhat, it’s just not the same) Why should games be allowed on Campus? David Shaffer, an associate professor of educational psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, has the answer:
The experience kids can have in a game world are more authentic than those they can have in a classroom
True dat! Why read about the War On Terror when I can play Call of Duty 4 and learn about killing terrorists first hand? Why go outside and exercise in the hot sun ($#@!, I hate you, sun!!!) when I can stay inside and play Wii Fit, which probably helps me lose more weight than standing outside, getting hit by balls (not like that) and getting skin cancer? The possibilities are endless.
