did videogames help you to learn to read as a child?

I learned from comic books, but unfortunately they rotted my brain. So then I started drinking whiskey, but unfortunately that rotted my gut. So now I just post on message boards, so now I've got a rotten computer.

I remember that when i was really young i used to play ff7 and have dictionary to check the words i didn't know. Video games are the reason i understand English language to the point i don't need subtitles for most movies.

Yep, I hated books but I loved video games. Playing games like Pokemon really helped me learn to read lol. I mean I knew how to read when I was playing it, but at the time I was young so I was at a low level. Pokemon helped me learn XD

Not really, I never actually played video games until after I learned how to read (I only watched others play them before that).

Nope, I started playing basic games like Sonic and only played those sorts until I was about nine or ten, and I was proficient at reading by five, so yeah. Nope.

Bethesda make poorly made shallow quantity over quality games.

Kind of. They didn't teach me how to read, but they helped my reading skills improve, and they definitely expanded my vocabulary.

For those players who don't speak Australian, we have provided an English translation of the previous scene. Do you want to replay the scene?

Nope, I already knew how to read. But they did help me to learn how to efficiently navigate (use) a computer's operating system. The in-game menus were very similar to Windows, just much simpler.

LOL no. Pokemon is all about brute force (other than type match ups).

No, I'd already been reading long before video games had words in them.

Ladies and gentlemen, someone who knows nothing about Pokemon.

Anyway, they didn't teach me how to read, but they helped expand my vocabulary and taught me many useful skills. They also gave me a huge HUGE fear of horror(Return to Castle Wolfenstein, funnily enough, said fear is also the reason I've never finished that game even though it's my favorite FPS), so uh..it kinda balanced out, I guess?
