Five Games That Teach Kids Good Financial Habits

Five Games That Teach Kids Good Financial Habits - Quicken Loans Zing BlogAs many media outlets have reported, Vice President Joe Biden met with big players in a number of industries in hopes to curb gun violence. Representatives from mental health organizations, the Motion Picture Association of America and the National Rifle Association have all met with Biden, including many reps from the video game industry.

Violence in video games has been a “flavor of the month” in Congress since the early 90’s, and people remain divided as they always have been.Five Financial Games Most regular players, like me, get more riled up about it than when we first tried to beat the Water Temple in Ocarina of Time. Those on the other side of the debate will not understand that last sentence.

Regardless of where you stand in the debate of how much of an influence video games have on kids, I figured now would be the best time to remind people that not all games involve killing and other heinous acts.

It’s true! Some video and board games have legitimately good messages and life lessons predominantly featured in the plot, and a section of those games even promote smart financial planning.

Mario Party is Monopoly’s cousin that never graduated high school.

If you’ve played these games you might initially laugh at Mario Party being on this list, and it definitely has the least amount of financial lessons of all the games on this list. But if you think of it as subliminally tricking your kids into understanding the basics of a savings account, then it’s pretty cool.

But youre getting a board too, and what else did you say? A game or two? I dunno, if wife AND kids want it - and even if you dont like casual games, there are one or two decent harder core games for it, I think.
Im more a PC gamer myself, mainly older strategy games.
