THE ABLEGAMERS FOUNDATION INC
October 19, 2010
Very briefly I worked as an editor/game reviewer when Ablegamers was first starting, though it has been many years since I have had an active role with Ablegamers, I frequently use and direct others to the website. It is through the game and tech reviews that I am able to better make decisions before investing in expensive games and adaptive equipment. As a disabled veteran, gaming, particularly online gaming, enables me to have interactions and a sense of accomplishment doing things, that I simply cannot do in real life. Folks sometimes find it odd that my characters in games tend to jump all over creation, climb things, and other activities, but these are things I cannot do anymore. Ablegamers provides an important resource for those of us who find a healthy outlet in gaming. Given the increase in Disabled Veterans, many avid gamers well before their disability, a source like this is so very important, information on games and tech to assist Disabled persons is shockingly hard to find at times, Ablegamers provides an invaluable resource for those transitioning from "able bodied gaming" to being disabled, and realizing that their loves and passions can find new venues, new outlets, and allow one to consider enjoying what they used too.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
The reviews have helped me decided which games to purchase as well as some new assistive technology
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would not change a thing, I believe the very organic evolution of the site, driven by people of different backgrounds is the best policy here, my needs from the site are not the same as the needs of others.
