Abstract
The aim of this study is to conduct a critical analysis of two video games through the perspective of gender studies. The reason for doing the analysis is implicitly connected to education. The results produced by this study are meant to showcase how video games can be analyzed critically, similar to how a novel or a movie can be analyzed. Sequentially, this will serve as an example how video games can be the subject in English education.
The implicit aim of this study is to give the reader a sense of what video games can provide in terms of education, how they can be used within the classroom, how they differ from other mediums, and how they can be analyzed.
