SWTOR has received another reward/recognition in the gaming community and quite honestly, I think this one is more important than any so far. AbleGamers Votes SWTOR ‘Mainstream Game of the Year’ and this is one of the best recognitions they’ve gotten so far.
AbleGamers.com is “the #1 Site for Disabled Gamers” and a fantastic resource for anyone who loves games but has a disability that can affect their enjoyment of those games. Not only did they review SWTOR but they had some great words to say about its friendliness to those with disabilities:
Every year there are two or three highly anticipated games released with massive hype and record-setting expectations. Most times these games fall completely flat when it comes to game accessibility, but this year one game set itself apart by including a fair amount of accessibility at launch while still meeting the public’s expectations for an amazing game.
The game gets an 8.5 out of 10 for accessibility. It gets full check marks for “deaf gamers”, “one-handed players” and “color blind” players. Alerts for precision and subtitles are further explained in the review. It’s one of the highest ratings I’ve heard of a game getting that was not specifically designed for disabled gamers.
