Glossary Entry: Edutainment

Quick Definition

This refers to games that are supposedly educational as opposed to just being entertaining. Some edutainment games actually are pretty fun, but on average they tend to be bland and generic as they stress being educational so much that they forget about being entertaining.

For a lot of gamers, "edutainment" just means "low quality game".
