I learned the bulk of my knowledge of the Vietnamese war from playing Battlefield: Vietnam ( a game which I feel guilty when I play)
I learned that the philosophies of Political innovators such as Voltaire and Hobbes apply to today's society by playing Counter Strike Source Zombie mod (probably one of the most intense zombie game I have ever played)

Just as a reminder... the object of this game is to say something you've learned from a video game so that someone else can guess which game you learned it from.

I learned that eating fruit can turn you into a monster.

Who says? My first list was just naming off random things from TF2. People can guess if they want, but I think this is just more to be silly. After all, some things are a bit to obscure to guess, and some things are tropes found in tons and tons of games. As for your game...Hmm...not sure, actually. You've got me stumped.
