I play mainstream fighting games myself, and I agree with all the comments I've read on this list. I own an n64, super nintendo, ps1, 2 and ps3. the latest games I've acquired are Mortal Kombat VS. DC Universe and Street Fighter IV. I'd probably get more if I had some cash handy lol. It takes a lot of patience and practice to fully master a game as a blind person since everything you hear isn't always obvious.

Hi

I'm a classic gamer myself. I think I'm one in 1000000 because there doesn't seem to be much interest here.

Anyway, onto my report - I'll make this as detailed as I can, sorta.

Well, to start off with, I own a sega genesis, soon to own a sega cd, 3do and dreamcast - I also own a n64, and gamecube.

Sega Genesis:
Well, this heres pretty obvious - the 16 bit lovable genesis released in 1989. Anyway, the best beat-em-up ever is Streets of rage. Its one of my all time favorite games - and while I can't beat it, I can get to level 4 pretty easy - I made it to level 5 once, but that was by luck. If I practiced enough, I could beat it - but I get enough enjoyment out of it that beating it doesn't matter to me. Mortal kombat 1, 2, and 3 - Well, fighting. Nothing talks, but I don't care. I'm slowly learning all the moves. I love mk 3, though, its got the coolest music, and my favorite MK character of all - nightwolf!

Sega CD:
This heres an add on to the genesis. Its got the same color pallit - but better sound, more storage space - which means more things talk and more accessibility is here... Mortal Kombat for this system wasn't widely recognized. Bad graphics. Jesus. Who cares about graphics! Its basically MK1 for the genesis revamped to have characters names spoken, and music from the arcade version. The most horrible thing here though is the load times. Nearly 30 seconds between each fight. If you do a fatality, you have to wait about a second before it actually does it. Keep in mind I'm only brushing the top. I could go into much more details over each game, each system, etc. I'm missing a system or two here - but you get the idea. Mostly fighting games - but then again, Rush 2: extreme racing for the n64 was and still is one of the coolest racing games of all time.

Hi,



my name's Mani Djazmi and I'm a reporter on the In Touch programme at BBC Radio 4 in England. I'm currently researching a feature on the accessability of computer games for blind and partially sighted people. The impression I'm getting is that mainstream games generally aren't very accessible so bespoke ones are being produced. Is this fair? Do any of you guys play mainstream games and how do you find them?



I look forward to hearing your thoughts and knowledge.



Cheers

Mani
