Why game accessibility matters

Meet the people pushing to make video games more accessible to those with — and without — disabilities.

The story is too old to be commented.

This was a very interesting article and I was very moved by it. I'm glad to see the step up. The focus on accessibility will ultimately benefit all gamers.

The Game Informer article about this very topic was well done too.

I think they have approached this topic a number of times. The last I read was about companies creating products for the disabled.

I think this is the perfect article to bring up an often overlooked little tidbit:

Bayonetta 2 will feature an all-touch-screen mode, where everything can be done using a single hand.

That makes it the perfect introductory action beat-em-up game for those few handicapped people out there that only have use of one hand, and practically the only high-octain action game of its kind on consoles with a mode catering directly to them.

Yet another use for the game pad; making games more accessible for disabled gamers.^_^

Lol. You know full well that's not why Bayonetta 2 has a one handed mode...

PFFT! You guys are such perverts!XD
I did laugh though...
But I digress; it is a good mode for people with trouble using one of their hands due to a developmental disability or severe permanent injury, and I think it's wonderful to see a game open itself up like that through a unique control method.

That joke pretty much wrote itself.
