I’m a gamer. I adore video games whether they are on my PC or a console. I love them whether they’re strategy, action, rpg, puzzle, or simply fun time wasters. When I discovered this site it opened my eyes up to a world of gaming I never thought about. The site reviews video games from the angle of accessibility to people who are disabled.
I highly recommend that you check out the About Us section, because they not only tell you what they’re all about but give you interesting information on the percentage of gamers out there who are disabled. When they say that more than likely someone you game with has some form of disability – that caught my attention right away, because I run a guild in the game World of Warcraft and we have two disabled gamers among us. One gamer has RSD, (Reflex sympathetic dystrophy) and another gamer has FOP (fibrodysplasia ossificans progressive) both of which are fairly painful conditions. My guild is like my second family, so you can see why this is near and dear to my heart.
To check out their reviews, click Reviews on their navigation strip at the top of the page. This will take you to page where you have the option of looking at games on certain platforms, or the hardware of the platform itself.
You’ll notice for the games they review there is a check card. On the check card you’ll find: Precision, Deaf Gamers, One-handed, Other Alerts, Subtitled, and Color Blind. A game can score in each of these areas. The games are also given an overall score from 1-10, with ten being the best. There will be a link to jump down the page to the main review of the game. In the text review you’ll get all the gritty details about the game and its ease of use by someone disabled.
On the main page you’ll find a lot of great information from the featured articles and news. You’ll also be able to learn about featured gamers. When I was visiting it was Carol from Cincinnati, Ohio; who plays games and they actually have helped eased her symptoms.
I hope this is a site you’ll pass on! I’m sharing it with you and with everyone important in my life!
