Sorry, got delayed with a follow up job interview! (PS. YES!) So today's question stems Carmen Sandiego nostalgia. I remember when I was a kid lugging around the Fodor's guide to the USA (and also that kickin' Rockapella + PBS Game show). For the record, I never caught Carmen Sandiego. Got close, but there was one clue that stymied me and this was around the birth of the internet (I remember using telnet to connect to the University's web portal. My mom worked at the university so we got free internet!) OK anyway, so, for those of you who are uninitiated, the game would have a clue on it such as, "She said she was going to the Garden State!" You'd have to then open up the ...travel almanac? I'm not too sure on the actual title of the book, and find the state that was also known as "the garden state." It was a fun way to mix research/learning (no wonder I came to work in science, THANKS CARMEN!) with a video game.
What is the most educational value you have received from a game?
