I love lists, so lists of lists have to be even better, right? This one is. Posted on the  LinkedIn GLS (Games + Learning + Society) Forum by Anuar Andres Lequerica. Re-posted here with permission.

Many serious games databases are just list of games but there’s not a sense of which ones are good. After years of reviewing and searching, I can recommend these lists/databases:

-First Place

http://steamcommunity.com/groups/ExtraCreditsEDU#curation
(the ExtraCredits team is composed of gamers that analyse and reflect on games very intelligently).

http://docubase.mit.edu/playlist/documentary-games/
(a terrific list from the MIT Game Lab).

-Second Place

https://www.graphite.org/top-picks#/top-picks
(Graphite/Common Sense Media have a huge games-for-learning database but most of their reviewers seem to not be gamers, so I get the sense that they don’t review the games very deeply).

http://www.totemlearning.com/totemspoll/top-ten-serious-games-in-politics
(Good list , although I don’t recognize some of the games.)

http://gamesandimpact.org/games/
(Another good database, with guides on how to increase learning for each game.)

Let me (Anuar Andres Lequerica) know if you have found any great lists/databases of games-for-learning.
