Video games are fun and also give people the power to do amazing things that
they would be unable to in real life.
With the right specialised hardware, many standard video games can be played
by anyone, no matter the disability. "One Switch Gaming" is especially
interested in games playable with a single switch, and in campaigning for accessibility
features in all games.
