AbleGamers Reviews Games From a Disability Standpoint

eldavojohn writes “Early last month a visually impaired gamer sued Sony under the Americans with Disabilities Act (and if you think that people with disabilities don’t play games, think again). The AbleGamers Foundation has decided to step forward and provide a rating system for games that blends together a number of factors to determine a score with regard to accessibility. Visual, hearing, motion, closed captioning, speed settings, difficulty settings and even colorblindness options are all taken into account when compiling these scores and reviewing these games.”
