I have recently been obsessed with the newest Fire Emblem game, Fire Emblem Fates. If you’re not familiar with the series, it’s essentially glorified chess; you control an army of characters and rage war with other troops. The catch is that you grow attached to the characters you control and if they die in a battle, they are dead for the rest of the game. So, being sentimental, I attempt to go through the game without having any of them die, and it pushes me to my mental limits.
If you’ve been a kid in the past thirty years, chances are you’ve played some semblance of an educational video game, whether it was required in school or you wanted to have fun at home. Since the boom of educational video games in the mid-80s, a lot has changed. With new technology comes innovation, and every year we have newer and better educational games for kids to play!
