The first game I played for this practice activity was Free Rice.  As you can see at the top of my screenshot for each answer you get right, they donate ten grains of rice through the World Food Programme to help end hunger.  Knowing that with each answer I was helping the needy I did not want to stop playing.  This is a great game and it is not that difficult to play.  You just answer a few simple questions about vocabulary. I ended up donating a little over 1,700 grains.  It makes you feel good to know that you are helping others while playing a game.

Next, I decided to play Stop Disasters.  This is a simulation game that is very educational in the sense that it provides insight on how to defend against natural disasters.  I selected to defend a small town against a flood.  Unfortuately, I failed and 14 people died and my hospital was destroyed.  I think it would be more interactive if this game was more like World of Worldcraft.  As if you were actually in the game instead of just looking over the city.  If you were a player in the city you could interact with others and get tips on how to protect the city.
