Have you ever chosen video games as a topic for an school assignment?

All through high school, I used to do my research papers on a topic concerning video games. However, my school's content filter on their internet made it a pain to get any good sources...

I've also cited video games for numerous examples in essays, and I once wrote a college essay on contrasting Ventus and Roxas from Kingdom Hearts. Got me an A, and the professor was very impressed with it. For my final project in my Technical Communications class, I'm considering doing Persona 3 or 4 as a topic.

High School? Nah, I can't remember any. College? Heck yes.

I just did last night. It was a compare and contrast between movies and videogames.

I used Fallout 3 for an assignment topic in a Philosophy class in college.

In high school senior English, I had to make a presentation about what I thought the meaning of life was using some form of media. I chose to use the Mega Man Battle Network series (all six were out by then) to demonstrate how everything in life changes over time. I'm pretty sure the teacher was blown away and I got one of the best grades in the class.

I took an Adaptation & Intertextuality course this semester and did a paper relating to the Disney characters in Kingdom Hearts vs. their original films. It was quite enjoyable :)

In college I did a 12-page report and oral presentation on various methods of communication between players in online games for my Electronic Communication course. It was mostly fluff, but all true nonetheless. I even got to use the original Phantasy Star Online trailer as an example.
