Help Spread The Word About Disabled Gamers

by Adam Biessener on Apr 25, 2013 at 06:50 AM

Former GI intern Josh Straub has entered his website into the Intuit “Love Our Local Business” contest to help him raise awareness about accessibility in games for disabled players. You can help him out with a simple vote.

Here’s Josh’s pitch for why he thinks his website is worthy of the $5,000 at stake in the contest:

Have you ever bought something only to find out you can’t use it? Disabled people have limited entertainment choices. Video games offer an enjoyable escape, but it’s a gamble to buy a game when you don’t know if you can play it. At, I rate the physical accessibility of games so that these gamers don’t waste money. Every week I write about my experiences with the most popular titles. It’s hard work. $5,000 would help pay freelance writers to increase the site’s content and help generate sponsors. DAGERS’s goal is to ensure that everyone can enjoy video games. Help DAGERS grow!

Josh is a great guy and a talented writer. Very little awareness about accessibility for disabled gamers is out there, and Josh’s voice is worth supporting. You can help his mission by throwing him a quick vote on the contest’s website, or by donating directly
