If I could earn a living doing what I love most, I would make video games that help people learn. I would use my artistic and technological talents to design and sell games to help teach people to speak other languages. I would find people who knew more about the language than I to help make the game more effective. In order to make the game more interesting, I would design the non-player characters to reflect the culture the language comes from, while still allowing the player to make their own character look just like them. I would design a special controller for each system it would be on that would double as a microphone and another that would double as a drawing tablet. This would ensure that the player would properly learn how to not only read and understand a language, but speak and write it as well.
