Able: Comfortable controls

Posted on: September 18, 2009

This article on Able Gamer is well worth reading.
I’m an AbleGamer and Did Not Even Know It!

I discovered that while I do not have the same physical issue as a one-handed gamer might have, our solutions might be the same. While I am not legally blind in either eye, I would still benefit from having font options built into my game.

To me, this is not about gamers that are rare or not your “average gamer”, this is about exactly the opposite. Many more people are actually disabled in some minor way that a truly realize it. Accessibility is something that will benefit all of the gaming community not just the AbleGamers that are visibly disabled.

My eyesight is limited, so larger fonts help me a lot. I remember when playing Fallen Earth, one of the common questions in the help chat, was how to increase the font size; so it does not seem like I am the only one.

When I’m tired from low iron levels, I find the free to play, click to move feature very useful.

I never get the people to argue against features that allow more people to play the game.
