Educational and even puzzle games can be stimulating tools for a learning environment. Since they make use of sight, sound, and touch simultaneously, they are also a good resource for different types of learners. Video game material in the classroom, however, should be restricted to those that can be justified as learning tools. Violent or adult themed video games should never be permitted in the classroom.
Educational video games date back to Oregon Trail on the old Apple 2e's that were in schools in the late 80's-early 90's. Video games are engaging and fun for students, and when properly programmed can teach as much as any other learning method. By offering educational video games, schools can keep students' interest and improve overall learning and retention.
Kids will quickly get addicted and start playing it during class Interrupting they're actual time to learn.

Some video games can be educational, like quiz games (Jeopardy-style games). But, in general, video games--even if educational--could distract from old-fashioned teaching, and increase students' inability to concentrate on the average school lecture. Anything extra used for educational purposes, from videos to video games, should be used at a minimum, with traditional teaching used primarily. Students have a difficult time concentrating due to their exposure to so much media, and they need to be encouraged to concentrate and learn the old-fashioned way.
