Yeah but here's the thing. how will you know if you can play it when you
actually aren't even willing to try the game out? just because a sighted
person tells you so? I had sighted people telling me oh you can't play rock
band, so don't even bother purchasing it. you gotta see the colored games.
well, I'm playing rock band. and to those asking how do I play it when I'm
blind, I won't even bother answering that question, mainly because we've
answered it plenty of times and it makes absolutely no difference. Isn't it
quite obvious that video games have sound? do you guys somehow think that
just cause it's called a video game this means that it's video exclusive and
a totally muted gaming experience? *sigh*. someone mentioned they don't play
rock band because they're musicians. all I gotta say to that is wow. I
really hope you don't always have that outlook on life.

Subject: Re: [Audyssey] my frustration with the blind gaming comunity.
I totally agree. If I know there is a game out there that a blind person
can play that may indeed be intended for sighted players, then I am
willing to give it 100% concentration. Hell, I would even go out and buy
the console it was designed for, just to play that game. But if you can't
play it, because you need a degree of sight, then what is the point in
wasting investments and time just to completely end up embarrassing
yourself with it because you can't play properly like your sighted peers
can? In my opinion that's just prejudice.
