In one article I found a couple of really interesting educational games that have been used to teach different topics. One of them is called “Immune Atack”. This game was developed by Brown University and the University of Southern California. Basically the point of the game is to teach the player biology and immunology topics. In the game, your character has an immunodeficiency and you have to teach his immune system how to function properly so that he does not die. Each time your character’s immune system is attacked with a different infection you must train the different immune cells to fight it off. You have to scan and interact with certain objects to train the immune system to be able to fight off the pathogens. I find biology hard and boring but I would still give this game a shot. This and the other educational games that I found will be good examples to use in my paper to support the idea that video games can be educational.
