Just as games are an ancient tradition in world history, modern virtual games have also done homage to a myriad of historical periods. We live in a world where people play chess, Liar’s Dice, Backgammon, Mancala, and Risk alongside such titles as Age of Empires, Europa Universalis, Civilization, and Assassin’s Creed: all of which are still played today. All often lead players to learn the history, geography, politics, religion, culture, and economics of each game as well. Turn-based or In Real Time, will virtual games remain a silent influence on students? Do they have a role in social studies education?
