Gaming and Learning

An interesting discussion over dinner last night.  Friends were talking about their son’s interest in cars and racing (to the point that he has received a sponsorship opportunity).  They credit video games for helping foster his passion in racing as it allowed him to familiarize with the culture/history of the sport even though they had no previous background or interest in it.  Their belief that the games allowed him to study drivers’ tendencies enabling him to better react in real life.
