Guys, stop being ridiculous. Old men complaining about todays youth are always ridiculous. Of course these students can read, some of them might be smarter than you. Its about a cultural divide thats opening up here, as this teacher correctly understood. You have to begin to see these games as part of history - that means you have to provide context for people that are newcomers to these things.

I assume this is a class about game design, so naturally these kids chose it to learn about contemporary game design. I think its a cool idea to throw some historic games into the mix, because its an excellent way to show what the basics of gameplay design are, when you strip all the shiny away. But it is not surprising that such games may need a little introduction with people who have never played anything that wasn't 3D and mouse/controller driven.
