Popular Post Gleaves Posted April 18, 2011 at 02:30 AM Popular Post Report Share Posted April 18, 2011 at 02:30 AM The Grand Gaming Project Play Chinese video games, practice your Chinese. With inspiration from its TV and Comic brethren, this is the Grand Gaming Project. Video games can be a fun and interactive way to practice Chinese. What is this? Basically, a collection of threads about games. More importantly, though, a call to everyone out there to share your Chinese gaming info and experiences. Video Games will probably be the focus, but board games or card games are just as welcome. Why? Chinese practice. Fun. When? No set schedule. How? In this main thread, share with us what you are playing, make some recommendations, share some info, or ask some questions. If you have a game that you really like (and has some value for studying Chinese), post a new thread about it and make it an entry in the project. Gaming Projects Gaming Project 1: 雨血之死镇 (Rainblood: Town of Death) (PC) An RPG from China about a mysterious sworsdman and an unexplained plague (Simplified).

List of Video Games in Chinese This is a (very, very rough at the moment) spreadsheet of games available in Chinese. Contributions are very much welcome. As of now, anyone should be able to edit/add info. If that gets to be a bit of a mess, I'll have to figure out some other way to let people offer updates. If this info already exists somewhere, let me know. I'm totally open to ideas on how to better manage this. (Also, thanks to Feihong for a bunch of good GBA info). Have you used games to learn Chinese? What are you playing now? Do tell. 15 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
