“Most people play video games to escape from reality for awhile and maybe do things they couldn’t do in real life (Madden, Grand Theft Auto).  The next step in video games is to have them evolve into teaching you actual skills.  While trying to make their game different the makers of Rock Band 3 claim they have somehow managed through a PRO game mode to actually teach you how to play the drums, keyboard and guitar.  Is this a good way to learn how to play actual music instruments?   What would critics of this video game have to say about not needing music classes or lessons because you could learn from a video game?  Or could you REALLY learn how to become a great player from a video game?  Why or why not?” (You MUST write 5 sentences or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

Thoughts? Comments?” (You MUST write 5 sentences or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

Redbox has turned out to be a major hit in renting movies.  So much so, that it has changed the way Netflix does business and nearly caused BlockBuster to go bankrupt.  To add to their dominance, Redbox will begin renting video games this month.  They will have PS3, X-Box 360 and Wii games available for $2 per day.  Is this a good plan?  What could be some drawbacks (bad reasons) and good reasons to rent video games through Redbox? Compare the two.
