There's an article on slashdot about how Square is looking into doing "serious" games, aka as "edutainment" back in the day. It had one of the funniest comments i've seen in awhile, after someone suggested they could do a Final Fantasy game about the Lewis & Clark expedition ("just imagine the boss battle when they get to the mouth of the columbia river...")

"Sephiroth jumps out of nowhere and stabs one of your party to death. He also breaks your wagon axle and spoils 254 pounds of food."

I wish i could steal coraa's sephiroth icon for this post. Did the wagons ever catch on fire? :)

that's not Lewis and Clark, that's orgeon trail! Lewis and Clark didn't use wagons, they had a boat, so it's more like
"Sephiroth jumps on boat, eats dog, kills the black man, and runs away with ammo, bear grease, and tobacco."

Well yes, but i think the intuitive leap between the concept of a video game about the Lewis and Clark expedition and the game Oregon Trail is pretty obvious, or at least you and i had no trouble figuring it out :)
