Help Outside of Gaming from Wizard101
During the holidays, we’re running a contest through our “12 Days of the Spiral“. The question is – what has Wizard101 or Pirate101 meant to you and/or your family in the past year? Here is our fourteenth and final winner! Read how Wizard101 helped this player learn life and educational skills through gaming.
Wizard101 has significantly impacted my life this year and it means so much to me. This game has been my inspiration ever since I started playing it. One extremely important thing wizard101 has done for me this year is that it has helped me work better with other people. Many of the quests and adventures in the game can be very difficult and can only be accomplished with other wizards. If you do not learn to get along with others then you will likely fall behind on your quests. Also getting along with one another is one thing that is lacking in the 21st century. Many wars have started from people not wanting to work together and share. In Wizard101 you will learn to work together.
Furthermore, Wizard101 is my thesaurus and dictionary. I was never really a good speller. In fact, I could not write this blog without the help of Wizard101. Incorrectly spelled words will turn red showing the player typing that his or her word is incorrect. So that means if you cannot spell you cannot communicate with the other wizards in the game. What’s the fun in a game you are not allowed to express your true feelings? My point is that if you want to enjoy the game to its fullness you must learn to spell which will help you in your everyday life.
Additionally, Wizard101 is my “second history book.” Wizard101 worlds such as Aquila have dungeons that display myths about past civilizations. The Tartarus dungeon for example walks wizards through the Greek myth of the underworld. In this dungeon we meet famous characters such as hades’ guard dog Cerberus, hades himself, Zeus, and Poseidon. Wizards get a head start on Greek mythology from wizard101 so when they get to school they are two steps ahead everyone else. This Christmas all I want is for Wizard101 to continue it amazing work on providing the best game for players around the world.
