Those two are older examples, but still ... there are games that are art based, or emphasize science. Lots of puzzle types of games, from very simple games like Tetris to games like Myst and Mushroom Men. And lots of games that require problem solving skills. There are also games that are specifically designed to be educational. 'Play' is a pretty traditional way of learning ... just because it's in the format of a video game doesn't automatically mean it's going to rot your brain ... that's what reality TV is for
