Are there any educational video games?

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is quite what you are looking for, but f you have a DS then these games have been awesome for our middle kids!


Professor Layton and the Curious Village


the next two in the series are equally fantastic - Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box and Professor Layton and the Unwound Future.


It is basically a mystery story where you have to figure out brainteasers, puzzles, etc. in order to get clues and solve the mystery.


Or maybe something like Big Brain Academy? They have it for Wii and Ds and probably other systems, too.

World Championship Spelling

Math Blaster

Learn Geography

Spelling Challenges

Words Rock

Geometry Wars

The History Channel Great Empires Rome

Jewel Master Egypt

Personal Trainer Cooking

I Spy Universe

Vet Life

Jewel Quest

Hands-on Tangrams

(Not sure of the exact title of the Zoombinis game, but it's close to that.). There are several expansion packs for Age of Empires. ER started playing them when he was a young teen, and just a few weeks ago, he asked us to send his Age of Empires games to him at college because he is taking Western Civ this semester & thought the game would help him grasp the timeline better.
