Educational Game Translation/ Pac Man (Res #2)

2. I have found an article that breaks down the reasoning of why video games have the reaction by the public that they are receiving. He brings the aspect of education and research to the world that video games create. I love the beginning of the article when he describes Pac Man and how it has been analyzed in the furthering of making games for a more educational medium. This has been going on since the release of Pac Man in the 1980’s. In my research project I am looking at the history of video games and how they have progressed and influenced many generations. This video game article is a great historical outlook of one perspective on gaming.
