10 perfect games to get ready for the school year

Who said that games are useless in studying? We refute the doubtful theory with bulletproof arguments

Summer is coming to its end, my friends. However sad it may sound, more serious time is coming, the season of freshman and graduation classes. Come back to learning things! It’s time to say goodbye to the holidays and get ready for the school year, remembering the games that could help you deal with the curriculum subjects. In other words, let's imagine, that video games can help you master certain science, why not?

English - Kerbal Space Program

This amusing game by Squad can benefit even those who are fond of astronomy (not to be confused with astrology), dreaming of distant space and working in Roscosmos or NASA. Therefore KBS can kill two birds with one stone: you can master the basics of rocket science and, speaking of English, prepare for sending your CV to Elon Musk & Co in advance. Kerbal Space Program is particularly good for studying English. Lots and lots of technical terms and words will appear on your way so often that you will perforce get them rooted in your memory.

Crafts - World Of Tanks

The tank simulator from Wargaming is the perfect tool for future laborers. One has only to start the game client and rush into the battle on his favorite IS-3, as one’s hand suddenly reaches for a mount or a wrench on its own and the second one goes for a glass of something burning and alcoholic. They also say, that if you play several thousand battles with SAU, along with the marks on the barrel you will get a degree from any technical training college of your choice. Want to check it out? Then rush to redeem “Object 261” or “Conqueror Gun Carriage”!

History - Kingdom Come: Deliverance

The history of mankind is capricious and can be changed with the snap of the fingers of those who are in power. That’s why it’s so important to value those, who stand for the truth. Daniel Vavra has lost an argument on Twitter where he showed his reluctance to indulge those who are willing to place a dark-skinned character in literally every game. However, he may have lost the battle, but he won the war.

As well as insidious Sigismund, whose story is told in Kingdom Come: DeliveranceWarhorse Studios scrupulously recreated the atmosphere of the medieval Czech Republic, torn apart by wars and civil strife. One can undoubtedly study the history of troubled times in Europe with the help of this game, which is as objective as possible and deprived of advertising elements in the form of African knights, the absence of which was so eagerly discussed between the fighters for tolerance. We have nothing against the inhabitants of Africa, but history must deliver the truth.

Chemistry - The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

The amount of time Geralt has spent collecting the ingredients for his witcher potions in the fields and forests of the vast open world of The Witcher 3 is huge. Alchemists of the Middle ages without any doubt would have given their fingers away for the recipes of “Swallow” or “White Honey”. That’s the practical chemistry in all its glory, my friends. It is worth assuming that the White Wolf would have turned out to be a good partner for Mr. White aka Heisenberg. Oh my imagination trembles, thinking of what those guys could have done together, if they were born in one universe and era!

Geometry - PUBG

Everyone, who’s been hunting for a “chicken” in Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds knows, how important is it to shoot well. And since PUBG Corp. with its chief - insidious Brendan Green made the "royal battle" as realistic as possible (especially in terms of car physics, huh?). It’s necessary to shoot calculating the curve and preemption. So here fellow Euclid’s theory comes to the rescue. Here and there, you need to estimate the right tangent and distance in order to get your extra kill with your favorite Kar98k. Make an active use of that.

Russian Language and Literature - Dota 2

You’ll ask why. Indeed, Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky would have asked this question as well. The answer is simple: as soon as you enter CIS-players community and feed a little bit, you’ll receive the waterfall of the Russian language in all its glory. Yesenin, with his love for foul language, would’ve been completely ecstatic. Peter the First, known for his love for obscene lexicon, could have had at least 7000 MMR now. After all, everyone knows that the rating in Dota 2 depends on the number of other people’s mothers mentions, right?

Geography - The Civilization 

Please don’t even try to prove, that before playing The Civilization a lot of people knew about the existence of Sumer, Congo or Scythian civilizations. The series are also good in telling a lot of interesting things about the culture of different nations, wonders of the world, cities and so on. Without Civilization, most people would have lived in ignorance, not knowing about the existence of such cities as Lagash, Inazawa or Tlatelolco.

Music and choral singing - Assassin’s Creed IV: Black flag

The sixth game of the famous Ubisoft series is awesome, first of all, because of sea battles, which were implemented in the game for the first time. But they were made so spectacular and steep that most of the players spent the lion's share of time finding the treasure and attacking enemy flotillas instead of participating in another big chess match between the Templars and Assassins. There is nothing better than boarding the next frigate with the provocative sea Shanti. And don’t tell me you didn’t sing this masterpiece along with the crew of “Jackdaw”:

Old Billy Riley was a dancing master.

Old Billy Riley, oh, Old Billy Riley!

Old Billy Riley's master of a drogher.

Old Billy Riley, oh, Old Billy Riley!

 Basic psychology - God Of War 

One of the best games of 2018 (if not the best) has got a lot of appreciation from the press and the gaming community. Apart from the perfect plot, superb graphics and a multitude of gorgeous characters, the main thing about God of War is the complex relationship between father and son. Kratos clearly is not getting the "Daddy of the Year" award, and Atreus likes nothing better than getting out to the forest to run into trouble. Both have a bunch of bad memories behind them, the tragic death of their mother and wife...there is something to consider. The developers clearly attracted experienced specialists in a complex science that studies human emotions and thinking to the creation of the protagonists God of War.

Physical education - Football Manager

Why not FIFA, PES or any other sports simulator? Because the selection is subjective and does not apply to sound thinking, that's why. Football manager has brought up a lot of experts who are better in strategy and tactics than any amateurs like Josep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho and Zinedine Zidane. In addition, as a result of the series of defeats in the game, the lower half of the body is actively pumped (or warmed up?). Checked.

Although, you know what? It’s still better not to spend the whole day at the computer and go for a run sometimes. The gaming industry is developing, but not fast enough to work on your abs automatically. On the other hand, there are still VR headsets, right?

Good luck in your new academic year and sincere condolences to those who have already finished this stage of life!
