NO we dont, but I am not making up terminology here, their called video games  because they are played on televisions. Computer games need a computer monitor. the general term that refer's to both is electronic game.

Nobody calls video games "electronic games". C'mon, you know what she meant. Computer games are video games, and vice versa. It sounds really nerdy to complain about such a minor issue.

If this is all based on real life information, how can it be biased?

Def. of "biased" = http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=biased

here's an example:
"The a-country is occupying b-country" = unbiased statement (unless a-country sudenly broke out and started killing evryone!  :-\)
"The a-country is plauging b-country"    = biased statement

well, not perfect, but you get the idea pretty well.

They mate and die happy. The female lays her eggs and she dies happy. The eggs die and we are happy..."

I guess, but this has been neaten into my head by my Gaming History teacher(who is really nerdy) that it is difficult ot get it out of my head.

Those of us in the know call TV games "Video games," games on the computer "Computer games," and the collective term is "games."

The word "games" is interesting because it can sound so 1337 and so childish at the same time. Video games are 1337, but when you say, "Hey Jimmy, let's play 53 skidoo! That's a fun game!" it sounds immature.

I just call them all video games to make it more simple. I mean, I never really call my Gamecube a Gamecube, I just call it the Nintendo.
