    Many of us probably have played some form of educational games as a child. The biggest company for edutainment games is by far Humongous Entertainment, with titles like Freddie Fish, Pajama Sam and Putt-Putt. But, of course, there are many more.

    Which games do you remember playing as a child? Are they fond memories, or have you tried blocking them from your past?

    I loved Clue Finder, those games were the only thing my sister and I would play together even though we were years apart. They were super weird yet the sound effects and puzzles were captivating for the child's mind. Hell, there were puzzles even when I was grades ahead we had trouble solving, it just kept the mind spinning. If my computer had a DVD drive, I would probably try to play them now and see if I still was stuck in the same place or not!

    I played jump start toddlers when I was a kid! I don’t remember much about it but the music haha. I feel like it had to do a lot with counting, shapes, and the alphabet.

    I played a total of one educational game, Skipper & Skeeto and I didn't play it for long since even as a young child I found it immensely boring most likely because I was slightly above the targeted age but it was al lthere was to play when waiting for your parents to finish stuff at places like the library. So it wasthe wrong kind of educational game for me since I do know there's some fairly good ones around even for older kids too, I just wasn't lucky enough to find those meant for someone a year or two older.

    Does educational count as spelling and math games? If so, then as a child I played Sky Chase, Spelling Bees, and Grand Prix multiplication. They were weird but easy enough for a 7 year old boy to do. (I think that was the age I was when I played it, but I have no idea)

    There are a lot of those sorts of games I own, and played them a lot as a child. Some of them I even play now because I found them so much fun - and still find them fun.
    In some cases I'm trying to rig my current computer to play some of them again, as a few won't load or open correctly unless it's a Windows 95 or 98 computer (I have one of the former, but the CD drive no longer works). Once I actually figure out how to do that, my life will be as amazing as it was over a decade ago.

    In other related news, I still own a copy of Mario Teaches Typing 2, but it definitely did not teach me how to type - that I learned when at school instead, with a program that was a lot more intuitive and made a lot more sense.
    I ended up going back to beat MTT2 after I learned how, of course, but only for a sense of closure.

    *digs through her children educational games collection* Well lets see here...I have The Jungle Book Learning, How many Bugs in a Box, More Bugs in Boxes, Cheerios Play Time, Buzz Lightyear Second Grade(why?), Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, Curious George Preschool Learning Games, Mickey Mouse and the Search for the Secret Keys, Chutes and Ladders, and somehow I have Sonic & Knuckles collection CD for the computer. I also have Axis & Allies and Black&White for the computer. I actually still have all these games and I pull them out so I could see them. I also had an educational game featuring Roly Poly Oly that is somehow lost.

    I loved Freddi Fish!! I loved the thrill of discovering "Who did it?"
    I also played quite a lot of the Arthur games and the Franklin the Turtle games.

    My favorite ediucational game is TF2. It taught me that my hat makes me better than anyone else.

    yooooo that's the one I played too! I don't remember much about the game other than that it had a different culprit every time and I thought that was mind blowing at the time.

    Dunno if this counts as an educational game, but it was a game that basically taught history. I think it was called Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego? I don't quite remember, but that's as close as I got to owning a game like that.

    Mine was a game called "Franklin's Reading World", it was a game on windows 95. I also played Math blaster, and a couple of math and reading games that involved dumping slime on the things called grussles. I have no idea what they were called anymore. I have fond memories of all of these games, they were fun and the time but man they do not look good at all today.
