    Meh, if it will be limited to communication options then it's fine. Surely it's another gateway for insane people to censorship games and that's bad, but the law on itself is actualy reasonable. On the bright side maybe we'll get more online games with limited/non-existing communication systems so annoying 10yo kiddos writing to you that they fucked your mama and you're a radert will be not a thing anymore.

    Also i hope that it will stay limited to in-game communication. We realy don't want to live in a world of dumbed-down "games" with no challenge at all. It sucks that some people cannot enjoy more complex games because of their disabilities, but this should not be used to ruin fun of others.

    I mean, if there is a selectable difficulty of "invincible mode so you can enjoy the story" and it's an option, (and it's always been an option), why does it harm how other people enjoy the game?

    I recall UDG doing this (giving the players accessible and rapid switching to an invincible character) to prevent the original VN fans from being unable to enjoy this game in case they weren't fans of action FPS.

    As long as it's an option, and thus far it's basically always been one exempting walking simulators or VNs (which are genres that focus more on story and not gameplay) I can't see how it impacts the fun of others.

    Yes, I do notice that some gamers with disabilities used trainer on PC version to make easier to beat.

    Hell, I’d be glad if it forces games *coughspyrocough* to have subtitles and make othe games like Ni No Kuni 2 to have legible text.

    Yes i completely agree IF the game can improve the disabled person mentally and physically(as much as possible)
    like puzzle games,But if it's just a Game that squeeze money and TEMPORARILY boost their dopamine.i think that's too much for a disable person..

    Now the reason for Nintendo's version of chat on the Switch becomes clear. If they pass it off to some other device they don't have to worry about this legislative bullshit.

    Care to elaborate on what you find objectionable about this legislation or the people discussing it? Or is this just a drive by troll post?

    Well for most of the people "Discussing" it.. I find objectionable that they apparently don't a) either read the damned article, b) have no reading comprehension.

    One of those is for a different thread but OK.

    One of those I would probably have written off as a failure to see sarcasm (it is a noted problem in textual communication).

    The other seems like a reasonable position -- from where I sit this is a forced do nothing especially good but cause traumas anyway piece of legislation.

    I'm so glad this passed.

    As long as the subtitles are optional and not forced, I'm down.

    The subtitles are always optional in most games in current generation, but some games have forced text box, especially Pokemon games and Super Mario Odyssey.

    Even they mandated subtitles in movies so they are all optional, but some anime movies tend to be subbed.

    I am deaf gamer and I am glad that the wii and switch have rumbles that help me. I also glad my fav games usually have subtitles.
