Low-vision gaming land is fine. I'm interested to hear about it...

The ps2 is a good option as would the wii if you're looking for classic games. But as I understand the menus on the wii are a bit of an irritant to visually impaired people. I recently got a ps3 as an early christmas gift, but unfortunately it wasn't one with backwards compatibility. Meaning until I find another ps2, my game collection is essentially useless. lol. But if you can find one of the earlier launch models for a decent price, I'd say go for it. ----- Original Message ----- From: "dark" <d...@xgam.org>

Again, i bought a gc principley for low vision reasons sinse a lot of for me, playable games were produced on the gameboy advanced and having a Gc i could play them with the gameboy player.

Again though, sinse things have moved onto the unplayable for me ds, I've recently considdered buying a Ps2 primarily for sc3 and shaolin monks, as well as some playable Ps1 games.

I've also though recently considdered the Wii, primarily for the virtual console, ----- but this is getting dangerously close to low vision gaming land, which deffinately isn't a place I should be going on this list so I'll stop.

Beware the Grue!

Yeah, plot and atmosphere are big for me as well. Shaolin Monks wasn't for the cube, but Deception would be worth it. Some of them fatalities particularly...

This was why I went out for sony consoles. There are just more fighting games as it seems to me, and the exclusives like Tekken five and Soul Calibur 3 which have pretty decent story modes is wonderful. ----- Original Message ----- From: "dark" <d...@xgam.org>

Fair enough clemment, I know my situation is different from others here.

I've actually been considdering buying deception and shaolin munks recently, just for the sake of trying and because Gc copies would now be incredibly cheap, so even if it didn't work I'd stil have a playable arcade game for not much money.

laying games like audio quake and terraformers i suppose I would guess my sensary intigration has increased.

As well though for me, I've always enjoyed plot and atmosphere in games, while I've been playing beat em ups ever sinse Streetfighter 2 and original Mk2 on the Snes, I only really became tremendously interested when story modes became available, ------ which is why I now feel mildly frustrated at the direction series like Mk and soul calibur have gone with their story modes.

Beware the Grue!

Hi Dark and Tom.

As a totally blind person who got into video games, I guess I can't relate as well. Growing up on fighters and brawlers, it's hard to say that I have a problem with playing games the way you two have a hard time with.

In regards to alliance, I did like that story mode better. Deception's story mode is a pain, yes, but the other modes are worth the buy. The games I find hard to play are games that have too much going on at once. Some instances of Urban Reign, for example. There are six or seven guys surrounding you and with the music and voices it's hard to tell which way to turn. I don't know. Video games have just never been hard for me though again, I guess it's because I never actually had to rely on my vision for them. ----- Original Message ----- From: "dark" <d...@xgam.org>

There's an irony Tom, you've listed some of my current favourites like the Mega man games, Double dragon and centipeed which i play from a low vision perspective.

I must admit, sinse I've started playing audiogames I have paid more attention to, and probably used game audio in graphical games a lot more than I did before, but for the reasons you detail I don't play games which I cannot use my vision on at all, though I know some other people have.

A good example is Mk deception. I really enjoyed deadly alliance, especially the textual story mode (perfectly easy with a faq).

I haven't however bought deception sinse the games story mode went into 3D and became visually totally inaccessible for me.

while I know some people, through extensive memorization and use of audio have managed this mode, ---- I'd personally just find it exceptionally irritating I think.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.

Hi,
That's definitely an interesting line up. What is sort of funny is
while my wife and I do own a PS2 I don't often play it myself. I find
learning to play mainstream games a struggle as many of the games I
like require alot of physical consentration and memorisation to play.
I don't enjoy vidio games as much as I once did, and I think alot has
to do with the fact I know what it was like playing games with sight.
However, back in the 1980's I think I was a vidio gaming king. As far
as a favorites list goes here is a pretty good list of the ones I
played often when I still could see to play them.

NES Games

Castlevania
Contra
Double Dragon I
Double Dragon II
Double Dragon III
Legend of Kage
Legend of Zelda
Megaman I

Megaman III
Ninja Turtles I
Ninja Turtles II

Atari Games

Asteroids
Atlantice
Centipede
Demon Attack
Deathstar Mission
Empire Strikes Back
Pitfall
Poll position I
Poll Position II
Space Invaders
