The best educational games ever? GamesBeat Decides


What exactly was The Oregon Trail supposed to teach kids? All I learned is that dysentery is the deadliest disease that I’ve never heard of anyone actually contracting before.

Still, The Oregon Trail is one of the best games in the odd edutainment genre, which is one of the big topics we talk about on this week’s episode of GamesBeat Decides. Host Jeffrey Grubb and co-host Mike Minotti take a look back at their childhood and the Macintosh computers in their school libraries to recall classics like Math Blasters and Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing.

In addition to the best educational games, Mike closes off his thoughts on Persona 5 and convinces Jeff to play it. And the guys start a news section where they break down the biggest stories of the week.
