• Access Granted

    E-Sports Event in Utrecht is First for Disabled Gamers

  • Fallout 4

    Somewhat Buggy but Not Entirely Inaccessible

  • World of Warships

    Fast Action, Slow Movement

  • XCOM: Enemy within

    Produced by Firaxis (makers of the Civilization franchise), this game is definitely on the short list of games that every gamer, disabled or otherwise, should own.

  • Civilization V

    The franchise has always been a ray of sunshine for the physically disabled, as gameplay is turn based, requiring no more than a mouse and a brain. No hyperactive reflexes required here.

  • AbleGamers Charity

    CEO Mark Barlet chairs panel on videogame accessibility at this year's Penny Arcade Expo Prime 2015, and announces new scholarship program

  • Diablo 3

    The third installment of the Diablo franchise is accessible to nearly everyone.

  • Who is Accessible Gamer?

    I'm a 32-year-old quadriplegic spreading awareness of the challenges faced by disabled video gamers, and how best to overcome those challenges.

  • This War of Mine

    Inspired by the siege of Bosnia. All information given to you by the game is through text. I could recommend it for anyone.

  • EVE Online

    A terrible game that is amazingly accessible.

  • Audiosurf 2

    Audiosurf 2 is an extremely clever casual "Racing" game that takes a song from your personal mp3 collection (which is, of course, 100% legally obtained), and creates a racetrack populated with multicolored blocks for you to run over and spikes for you to avoid.
