What is a Ludicriticism?

Many things purport to be "educational" today. As we live in a an increasingly gamified world, the ongoing debate about what is a game, what is entertainment, and what is edutaintment all obfuscates the real question, which is: does this interactive experience have educational benefits? And if so, what are they specifically? Can we identify them? Are they backed by the learning sciences? This section of the blog will thus be a place where we will review educational games and products in detail and provide in-good-faith criticisms/ludicriticisms about them.
