“Either Obama wants to show everyone just how hard his job is, managing the country’s finances, or he really does think that balancing the books is good fodder for a video game. Erskine Bowles, from Obama’s administration, says that the game “would enable anyone with a computer to take a stab at balancing the budget” and would definitely “go viral.”
Well, I have issues with Erskine Bowles. But beyond that..it seems like an interesting idea. I liked this response the most:
Hooray for this random person! Because…I agree :) Although…I don’t really think this will work. I mean…games are supposed to be fun. This wouldn’t be particularly fun. Even from an edutainment perspective. And there’s no way to tell what will definitely go viral. Erskine Bowles is just full of hot air on this matter, in my opinion. But it’s still an interesting idea!
