    I had a friend I grew up with that passed his GED in part due to an essay he wrote on nuclear disarmament which was sourced entirely from what he could recall from playing metal gear solid. If that counts for anything :)

    Richard, you may want to check out the early Golden Age history of comics. The same thing happened to them in the late 40’s/early 50’s. A psychologist by the name of Frederick Wertham did the same song and dance: the rise of crime and horror comics, and even some super hero stuff, was a corrupting influence. This led to the ruination of the original Tales From The Crypt comic series, and its publisher (EC comics) avoiding the comics backlash altogether by printing a little comedy magazine called MAD, not to mention the comic book burnings that were held just a couple years after Nazi Germany had done the same thing.
