Re Wheel of Fortune: My son, 15, jokes that he is planning to write a book, Everything I Need to Know I Learned in Video games. It's amusing when he comes up with a correct Jeopardy response and says, for example, I learned that in Age of Empires. Many of the games in question are historical simulations, which goes to show an eager learner can amass knowledge whereve he can find it. . It's the approach to the material; not the material.
