eXTReMe Tracker

Last month, The Daily Telegraph was reported by Splines to have published sensationalised coverage, including categorizing video games under the term 'Junk Culture'. I'm happy to have this story brought to my attention by a PC Gamer forumite. The title of the story is "Pupils to be given lessons in video games", and is written in an astonished but accepting tone. The article begins like so:

"Video games are likely to become part of the school curriculum after research funded by the Department for Education praised them as a powerful learning tool.

It may surprise parents struggling to control children's addiction, but games on computers and consoles were found to be "a compelling learning resource".

It's only brief and worth a read; And probably the closest gamers will ever get to a sympathetic article from the Telegraph.
