Bayonetta 2 has won the title of “ACCESSIBLE MAINSTREAM GAME OF THE YEAR”, as awarded by gaming charity AbleGamers, a charity dedicated to sourcing and publicising solutions for the disabled or non-able bodied gamer. Cuz’ heck, everyone should be able to game, right?
What better game to win the award? Bayonetta 2 can make the mode complex and elaborate moves a one button delight, so it is no surprise to see that it has won this award. AbleGamers, said:
Bayonetta 2 stands out among other accessible mainstream games by paying careful attention to user friendly game experience. The inclusion of a one-button combat mode creates an experience other character action titles should implement. As a proof of concept, this game demonstrates that accessibility can be implemented into a mainstream AAA game without harming any of the gameplay. Popular titles such as Shadow of Mordor could easily implement one-button mode for those who need such accessibility while leaving a complicated controls for those who prefer those methods, and still award players with a top-notch game that is accessible to everyone.
