Ok well its not that fear of ridicule.
Its the fact that you can't see what you are doing.
Ie if you are on the computer.
if I know aprox what I am doing I can do it whout sight.
But I can't check.
and what will happen and I don't do something wrong.
Lets say format c instead fof format e.
I won't get any feadback.
Nothing its still a valid command. it works.
Um no feadback does mean you need to fly on the seat of your pants.
Ok, sure with sighted help you could remember the menu structures, maybe even the game moves for each char or whatever and I guess with trial and error, patience and an infinate supply of time which you clearly have it would be good.
most of us don't.
I have found myself killing games because I can't get things to work and by no means do I usually just go and not bother. But if I can't even get that far not knowing what I need to do then its not worth my time.
I would probably be cool if all I did was play mainstreams all day long.

and that right there is the problem. why do you guys keep coming back to sight? I'm 100% blind. Most video games need sight, but there are also many that don't. so why do you guys keep insisting that all video games require some degree of vision to play? that's the big question I would like an answer to. is it just cause someone tells you that video games are strictly for sighted people, and therefore they're right no matter what we say or do to prove you wrong? how can you sit there watching someone play games, and not even make an attempt to try it for yourself? is it the fear of being ridiculed perhaps? I'm really trying hard to understand this guys, but I just can't fathom it.

Actually Yohandi, I at least am well aware of what games like rockband and guitar hero are like, sinse my brother and friends have them, and I am thus well aware of what I can or cannot see on the screen.

If I can see about configuring my joystick, I might considder pc streetfighter though, that is a good idea sinse it wouldn't require me to shell out for a console.

Beware the grue!

Dark.
