Accessibility in Video Games: My Thoughts and Experiences

This seems to be becoming a bigger and bigger thing. Microsoft have their adapted controller and have just posted a pledge for further support. Sony had an amazing amount of accessibility settings in The Last of Us 2. I’ll separate my thoughts based in different categories. Visual I’m colourblind. This isn’t an extremely rare thing (5%

Top 50 Games of the Generation

November 2013 – October 2020 50: Overcooked 2/Moving Out Starting with a dual one as they’re so close to each other, and both great for similar reasons. Both Overcooked and Moving Out turn simple tasks into a hilarious co-op challenge, causing arguments and blaming each other as you mess up. Both are great fun and

Games of the Generation | 1: Control

This kind of came out of nowhere for me. I adored Alan Wake but didn’t really follow the developer due to Quantum Break not catching my interest. Control seem to come out with little fanfare, it was only after accidentally buying PlayStation Now instead of PlayStation Plus that I discovered it. What awaited me was

Games of the Generation | 2: Super Mario Odyssey

Since Super Mario 64, other Mario platformers haven’t quite tickled the same itch. Super Mario Odyssey brought back that feeling of joy while also adding so much more. The levels are the main point of this. Not only are they varied themes, but each one has its own visual style. This could have come across

Games of the Generation | 5: Splatoon 2

While I got this game a bit late to enjoy most of the Splatfests, I still massively enjoyed Splatoon 2. A lot of that due to the Octo Expansion. The core gameplay is just as fantastically crazy as the first game, with extra additions in the form of weapons, more interactive/moving arenas and extra mode.

Games of the Generation | 6: God of War

I have not played previous God of War games, but they do sound like hack and slash games. This new one, however, is definitely more of a story focused action/adventure game, although there is still plenty of combat. Kratos, after killing all the Greek gods, has settled down in Midgard with a family. The game

Games of the Generation | 7: Horizon: Zero Dawn

Post-apocalyptic robot dinosaurs. It sounds fun but incredibly silly…yet Horizon: Zero Dawn not only takes it seriously, but actually pulls it off in a way that makes complete sense, too. You play as Aloy, who was made an outcast from her tribe as a baby, raised by another outside. She doesn’t know why, but wants

Games of the Generation | 8: Mass Effect: Andromeda

Leaving the Milky Way behind, Mass Effect Andromeda revolves around massive arks filled with people who have decided to make a fresh start in a new home, going into cryo for hundreds of years. The arrival in the Andromeda galaxy is not smooth. The viable planet the human ark was heading towards is cracked into
