GO WATCH A MOVIE 

Next up on Worth Reading: The other team should just fucking let me win when I play baseball. 

well this isn’t necessarily a bad point. there are games with great stories and really awful shoehorned fighting sequences. then you also have handicapped/disabled gamers who don’t necessarily have the dexterity to finish a game but would still like to be able to.
optional “cakewalk” modes aren’t that bad of an idea.

what if i want to just see the story of the game and dont want to actually play it? like??
as it is i would never pay for a bioshock game or a fallout game but i am very interested in the story. so i just watch youtube videos of it. they could get money from me if they sold the skip combat mode

i’m a games developer and an avid gamer and i really really think games should let you skip combat

honestly one of my favourite things about la noire was when you failed a sequence twice the game was like “yo do you just wanna skip this bit?”the gaming industry/community has a huge problem with accessibility tbh. like, thank god for standardised control schemes (although bring back full customisation jfc  not enough games have that anymore) but fights require time, literacy in both that type of gaming & in the individual game, you need to be able to navigate the system which can be anywhere from slightly difficult to hellish for people with visual/audio processing disorders. and tbh sometimes you just wanna enjoy the story and not get stressed the hell out doing the sAME FIGHT 700 times. it’s why i always put a game on easy/casual when I’m replaying unless  i’m specifically going for difficulty based achievements.not to mention SO MANY GAMES have either poorly designed battles or fights that have been shoved in for no reason other than to pad out the game (dxhr & da2 come to mind immediately) that sometimes it’d honestly improve the gameplay to just skip them altogether

Imagine if you were a gamer with arthritis or MS or some other disability that took away your ability to click buttons quickly, and every fight became as frustrating as THAT GODDAMN DA: ORIGINS OH FUCK I’M ON FIRE SLIDE PUZZLE.

honestly one of my favourite things about la noire was when you failed a sequence twice the game was like “yo do you just wanna skip this bit?”the gaming industry/community has a huge problem with accessibility tbh. like, thank god for standardised control schemes (although bring back full customisation jfc  not enough games have that anymore) but fights require time, literacy in both that type of gaming & in the individual game, you need to be able to navigate the system which can be anywhere from slightly difficult to hellish for people with visual/audio processing disorders. and tbh sometimes you just wanna enjoy the story and not get stressed the hell out doing the sAME FIGHT 700 times. it’s why i always put a game on easy/casual when I’m replaying unless  i’m specifically going for difficulty based achievements.not to mention SO MANY GAMES have either poorly designed battles or fights that have been shoved in for no reason other than to pad out the game (dxhr & da2 come to mind immediately) that sometimes it’d honestly improve the gameplay to just skip them altogether

Imagine if you were a gamer with arthritis or MS or some other disability that took away your ability to click buttons quickly, and every fight became as frustrating as THAT GODDAMN DA: ORIGINS OH FUCK I’M ON FIRE SLIDE PUZZLE. 
Yeah. Skipping combat might seem like a not bad idea then.

Mass Effect 3 has this:
[Screenshot from a Mass Effect 3 menu, with title: “Choose Your Experience”, showing the options ‘action’, ‘role playing’ and ‘story’.]
‘Action’ makes most story choices for you and conversations become straight up cutscenes. ‘Role playing’ is the default experience, both challenging gameplay and character/story building. And ‘story’ has the roleplaying but very easy combat, letting you breeze through it. (You also have a ‘casual’ difficulty setting that’s a bit more rewarding but still pretty easy.)
The thing about video games (particularly RPGs or in general games that allow you to explore or direct the story) is that the interactivity is what makes it different from movies or watching LPs on youtube. And I’ve played games that got FAR stronger emotional reactions out of me simply because I had to carry out the actions myself rather than just watching. And that experience should be more accessible.
Because SHOCKINGLY: games aren’t always about winning, or being good at it. It’s about having fun. This is kindergarten education here.

Yeah, it always baffles me when I see people react so negatively to a perfectly reasonable suggestion like this.
Why the hell shouldn’t games let you skip combat if you want to? Why shouldn’t there be a super-duper-easy-peasy mode for everything? No-one is gonna force YOU to play it like that if you don’t want to! Continue to be as hardcore as you like!
I just don’t understand the resistance at all. What we’re talking about is simply having more options for gamers. You’re adding something that would make games more accessible and fun for loads of new fans, and you’re not taking ANYTHING away from existing fans.
Like…do you…not want more people to enjoy these games?? Do you really hate the idea of other people having fun so much that you’ll rile against it even when it literally has no effect on you or your experience whatsoever?? Are you honestly that selfish??

I am *horrifically* bad at gaming, but it’s a genre that I’m intensely interested in and very desperately want to be more immersed in. I would HAPPILY buy so many more games if combat was a skippable option. 

Not to mention one of the best indie games out right now is pretty much telling you if you want the best ending, don’t fight.



Yeah, I hate the elitist mentality that only those ~*~*hardcore*~*~ enough should be allowed to enjoy video games. I mean, gaming should be an experience to be had and not just an obstacle to clear, right?Then again, my poor mental health situation and chronic pain+mobility issues on my right hand means that my gaming options are severely limited nowadays. So I’m all about making gaming accessible for everyone in the first place.Anyone who thinks gaming will be ruined by making it more accessible need to realize that they have already ruined gaming for many.



Anyone who thinks gaming will be ruined by making it more accessible need to realize that they have already ruined gaming for many.



I’ve had to stop playing certain games because all the button mashing aggravated my carpal tunnel pain, and I rage quit some because they had a super frustrating part that I could never get past. Games should be fun, not a test of endurance. At least, they should let you skip the difficult parts you are unable to do. They can still have a hardcore mode for people who enjoy a challenge. They would still get to brag about their accomplishments without preventing others from enjoying an otherwise fun game.



Unpopular opinion but just watch the game on youtube then? Why spend money when you don’t get the full experience? 

The different between watching and playing isWatching you’re seeing someone’s experiencePlaying you’re experiencing itI watched a lot of gameplay and playing some of the games myself have a very different feels to it


Understandable but why waste money on a 70 bucks game if you cut out like 30 or 40 percent? That’s not worth it

well this isn’t necessarily a bad point. there are games with great stories and really awful shoehorned fighting sequences. then you also have handicapped/disabled gamers who don’t necessarily have the dexterity to finish a game but would still like to be able to.

 Wentworth Miller
 Today I found myself the subject of an Internet
 meme. Not for the first time.
 This one, however, stands out from the rest.
 In 2010, semi-retired from acting, I was keeping a
 low-profile for a number of reasons.
 First and foremost, I was suicidal
 This is a subject I've since written about, spoken
 about, shared about.
 But at the time l suffered in silence. As so many
 do. The extent of my struggle known to very, very
 few.
 Ashamed and in pain, I considered myself
 damaged goods. And the voices in my head
 urged me down the path to self-destruction. Not
 for the first time.
 I've struggled with depression since childhood. It's
 a battle that's cost me time, opportunities,
 relationships, and a thousand sleepless nights

 In 2010, at the lowest point in my adult life, I was
 looking everywhere for relief/comfort/distraction.
 And I turned to food. It could have been anything
 Drugs. Alcohol. Sex. But eating became the one
 thing I could look forward to. Count on to get me
 through. There were stretches when the highlight
 of my week was a favorite meal and a nevw
 episode of TOP CHEF. Sometimes that was
 enough. Had to be.
 And I put on weight. Big f--king deal.
 One day, out for a hike in Los Angeles witha
 friend, we crossed paths with a film crew shooting
 a reality show. Unbeknownst to me, paparazzi
 were circling. They took my picture, and the
 photos were published alongside images of me
 from another time in my career. "Hunk To Chunk."
 "Fit To Flab." Etc.
 My mother has one of those "friends" who's
 always the first to bring you bad news. They
 clipped one of these articles from a popular
 national magazine and mailed it to her. She called
 me, concerned.
 In 2010, fighting for my mental health, it was the
 last thing I needed.

 Long story short, I survived.
 So do those pictures.
 I'm glad.
 Now, when I see that image of me in my red t
 shirt, a rare smile on my face, I am reminded of
 my struggle. My endurance and my perseverance
 in the face of all kinds of demons. Some within.
 Some without.
 Like a dandelion up through the pavement, I
 persist.
 Anyway. Still. Despite.
 The first time I saw this meme pop up in my social
 media feed, I have to admit, it hurt to breathe. But
 as with everything in life, I get to assign meaning.
 And the meaning I assign to this/my image is
 Strength. Healing. Forgiveness.
 Of myself and others.
 If you or someone you know is struggling, help is
 available. Reach out. Text. Send an email. Pick
 up the phone. Someone cares. They're waiting to
 hear from you. Much love . -W.M.
