Hi

I really hope mortal kombat gets released for the psp, similar to ps3's. I love my psp and won't ever go with anything else- actually, another console to add here - am I the only one that has good luck with it? - is the nintendo 64! Such good memories, much fun and a lot, and I mean a lot, of trial and error. I stil own this beauty and have a lot of non accessible games for it. But I love it, nonetheless.


I also own most other systems you can think of. Sega products, including sega cd, sega genny, (1, 2, and the horrid 3), cd x, sega saturn, sega dreamcast, game gear, nomad. Master system, 3 do, super ness, nes. Jaguar cd. Jaguar.

Note: some of these systems are extreeemely rare! I had a heck of a time obtaining a 3do at a reasonable price, same with the nomad. I love them all though and, eventually, will do podcasts on the ones I can. I can't really do podcasts very good, and am practicing, but these podcasts will come in a while, I hope.

I have 1 or two accessible games for each system, some systems, though, don't even have one. I own the system for the joy of it- and yes, sometimes regret it- but if your looking for a portable system, why not try the gameboy. I agree, the newer systems are good, but older systems have a certain charm to them, pokemon series for one is completely accessible (well, not completely but very close).

hope that helps

Hi Lindsay and all.

Well Thomas did a really excellent job of explaining a lot of aspects of
playing mainstream games but I will add my two cents as well.  It
apparently really depends on what console you have as to what games are
playable and how easy it is to get them going.  From what I have read
here it seems that the Sony consoles e.g. playstation, playstation 2, 3,
psp etc. seem to be the ones to get, although the new Nintendo console
is supposed to be good as well if you want to spend the cash for it.  If
you are going to go with one of the nonportable playstations, probably a
ps2 or 3 is the best because they are apparently backward compatible,
meaning you can play old playstation games on them as well as the newer
ones.  I personally own a playstation portable and I love it but am also
looking into getting one of the nonportable ones for home use.  As I
commented in another message it will probably be a playstation 2 as the
ps3 is just too expensive right now.

I would definitely agree with Thomas that you should start with
something relatively simple like one of the fighting games such as
Tekken or Mortal Kombat even if you are not sure that you like that kind
of game.  If you start with something too complicated too soon or you
have a bad experience and run into an unplayable game too soon then you
are more likely to get frustrated and give up.  As he says you are going
to need to memorize the game menus e.g. press down arrow three times and
press the X key, then press down arrow twice and press X again things
like that.  Fortunately most of the menus at least on the psp seem to
make a sound when you press a direction key so you know that it took, I
would assume that at least the other Sony consoles are similar.  Once
you are into the game itself then you will find it is a matter of
memorizing moves and combos and quite a bit of trial and error
especially at first.  It is easy to get frustrated and give up and I
imagine quite a few people do at this point but just stick with it.  The
thing to remember is that although you will probably never be as good as
a sighted player at most of these mainstream games so long as you can
play it far enough to have fun and you feel you've gotten your money's
worth that is what is important.  I still only have the one game that I
can play on the psp that is Tekken dark resurrection but I have a blast
with it and play it all the time and have not tired of it yet.  One
option for trying games out that might be convenient for us is
gamefly.com, this is a service similar to netflix where you get a
certain number of games sent to you per month depending on how much you
pay them.  It starts at ten or fifteen bucks a month or something along
those lines, I've considered it but haven't actually taken the plunge
yet.

Well that's enough for now, feel free to drop me a note if I can help
you more.  Happy gaming.

Tom

What mainstream games are accessible for blind people?
