The video game genre has a profound effect on the students of today. It is hard to find any student who does not admit to playing some video games. Utilizing what the students does and can relate to within the lesson is key as a teacher and video games can be that link.

For example, if a student plays Legend of Zelda, I can realte to that student in their playing of that game. I can also take the Legend of Zelda and apply it to other stories. I can also take it and break it down for its themes and story telling devices. I can break it down in terms of its music and its effect on the player. "The Player" then becomes a literary idea of the person interacting with the world the game creator has made. It becomes an interesting prospect.
