Edutainment video games (a mash-up of Education and Entertainment) are video games that have an educational goal as part of the game's mechanics, but using an entertaining form of gameplay, and sometimes using other licensed video game characters. Typical Edutainment games teach the player skills such as typing, math, language, geography, history, etc., but can also be used to develop social skills such as teamwork and sharing. The majority of Edutainment games are aimed at young children, although some exist for older children and even adults.
