i bet video games for learning could also be used as a great marketing tool for future video game customers.

Videogames taught me that there is always a bigger weapon, horde everything, stealing is only bad if you get caught, and that if I'm killing people, I'm headed the right way.

Was I supposed to learn something else?

I learned from a King's Quest game that making a mistake early on can lead to intractable problems.

There are a lot of good learning video games out there; they just don't usually get mainstream attention.  One that's well done, for learning Hiragana & Katakana is Learn Japanese to Survive.

Number 1 thing I learned in video games is always avoid dark areas unless you want to be a snack for some Gru.

Nah, I opted for the path that had "crouching makes you invisible" instead. I thought about minoring in optional physics though, and I think it had banging on walls to find doors as a class.
