I was very moved by this TED talk, and want to share it with everyone:

Educational, but fun, games. There is a market for it. I was recently involved in a project were a gaming company was commissioned $240,000 USD to make an educational for the US Military for use on 3rd world kids. I think this is a great website to hand this idea to. Programers and Designers, please make an educational game that is fun to play. If you yourself don't get picked up for something, I know you will be paving the road for having games in the classroom. I have seen several good typing games, but I look forward to the ideas of others. I personally made a game years ago to get through a college course involving the stars and needing to know about them.

I once dreamed of making an MMO were if you wanted to be a medic in the game, you would take actual CPR and EMT classes that were fun and interactive. I hope I can reach one person with this post who will help make educational games that are fun to play, because I plan on teaching, and want to be the one to hands my kids the games they play.

Thank you for your time. Please post feedback.

If you have FGL account you can take a look at my game, Ninja Cat and Zombie Dinosaurs. It's a typing game mixed with quick action platform. I think it has edutainment value.

And when it comes to learning and fun... indeed, zombie dinosaurs make learning typing fun! no matter if you're a boy or girl.
