AbleGamers Names SWTOR Mainstream Game of the Year

AbleGamers has named Star Wars: The Old Republic as its Mainstream Game of the Year for its accessibility to disabled gamers. Some of the features noted were:

  • Companions: Provides support to players who need it without requiring they rely on the help of other gamers (which can be a mixed experience, let me tell you)
  • Full subtitles
  • Queueable actions
  • Colorblind friendliness of minimap
  • Area/auto looting

Of course AbleGamers notes where improvements can be made, but they celebrate what is there, noting:

What makes this game so special is that the developers took the time to include so many accessibility options while up against tight deadlines in such a highly anticipated title.

Yay!
