Ready Player One: Is Assassin's Creed the future of teaching?

Growing up I was obsessed with simulation games. Sim City, Theme Park, Theme Hospital, and Civilisation were my go-to games, the Command and Conquer series and Dungeon Keeper were also favorites. At the time, and still, now, I attributed these games to my success in the humanities at school. Irrigation, resource management, pollution, and overpopulation – all concepts I grappled with on a near-daily basis. Urban regeneration after a devastating fire; the comparative advantages and disadvantages of democracy over communism and optimal tax rates were my bread and butter as a 14-year-old boy.
