"The practice of using games to do more than entertain is now mainstream."
In this free GDC Vault video from the last GDC Online, Wired's Shannon Perkins discusses how his game Cutthroat Capitalism managed to educate its players without being manipulative in 'Faster, Cheaper, Better: Deeply Integrated Game Mechanics.'

About the GDC Vault

In addition to this presentation, the GDC Vault offers numerous other free videos, audio recordings, and slides from many of the recent GDC events, and the service offers even more members-only content for GDC Vault subscribers. Those who purchased All Access passes to events like GDC, GDC Europe, and GDC Online already have full access to GDC Vault, and interested parties can apply for the individual subscription Beta via a GDC Vault inquiry form.

Group subscriptions are also available: game-related schools and development studios who sign up for GDC Vault Studio Subscriptions can receive access for their entire office or company. More information on this option is available via an online demonstration, and interested parties can send an email to Gillian Crowley. In addition, current subscribers with access issues can contact GDC Vault admins.

Be sure to keep an eye on GDC Vault for even more new content, as GDC organizers will also archive videos, audio, and slides from other events like GDC China and GDC 2013. To stay abreast of all the latest updates to GDC Vault, be sure to check out the news feed on the official GDC website, or subscribe to updates via Twitter, Facebook, or RSS.

Gamasutra and GDC are sibling organizations under parent UBM Tech

I remember commenting on this video back around Nov 19, 2012 because I disagreed that this game educates and I disagreed that it did not manipulate.

The old link now points to this article where the comments are non existent. Or maybe this is the old link with the date changed and the comments deleted. Either way same effect.

p.s. The google cache version still has the comments from the original post.

Yep! We rebump free vault videos occasionally and don't want to duplicate posts, so the easiest way to do it in our CMS is to delete the old comments and adjust the date.
