At a time when video games are blamed for violence and even mass school shootings, this list invites parents and educators to take a more nuanced view toward the role of games in the lives of young people. I own, play and have used all but one of these games in a classroom or workshop setting. I highly recommend any educator who is unsure of how games can impact a child’s view of the world to play at least one.
