We all complain about games a lot, but it's important to remember why we love them in the first place: they allow us to do things we can't do in the real-world; to escape to places that we'd never be able to travel to. For some of the most disadvantaged people, though – the people who are arguably most desiring of the opportunity to get away from real-life – they're rendered unplayable, simply because we don't give accessibility the time of day.

That's changing, and panels like the one embedded above are just the tip of the iceberg. At PSX 2016 this weekend, Sony had sign language experts on stage for all of its panels, and it also put on a panel talking about what more could be done to make games more accessible to people of all walks of life. It's a reminder that, for as rapidly as this industry is evolving, it's still not doing enough to embrace everyone. And hopefully discussions like this will make us all more aware of that fact.
