I think a lot of video gamers play games because it helps them escape from the real world

Video games are meant to immerse you in an imaginary world so you don't have to worry about real world problems or skills. I think some games should help you with real world problems and skills, but they should be in the minority

they do, most games already do

There are already educational games like Scribblenaughts. They are great for helping kids learn without having to force them to. But I agree that the primary reason for games is entertainment.

Don't some games do that already? Like Minecraft teaches you to run away from green peapole and don't change the whole world to sand, it'll cause it to fall down and crash XDDD

There can and should be educational video games. But in so far as a video game's goal is to be entertainment, it should be entertainment.

I don't want to work for 40 hrs at a skilled job, come home and work more but in a game world.

I dont think so. because real life isn't like video games. knowledge is more important than playing video games for your world skills.
