Disabled dude demands EA improves gaming access

Control customisation is key

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

A disabled man is campaigning for EA to adapt the controls on Dead Space 2, so he can play the game using only his chin.

Gaming enthusiast Gareth suffers from cerebral palsy and, as a result, can't move his arms. He pursues his passion by controlling a mouse with his chin.

Gareth raised his dilemma in a thread at Overclockers UK, where readers immediately began suggesting solutions and helping to promote his needs.

Below is a clip of him playing Fallout: New Vegas. Gareth's YouTube channel also shows him flawlessly racing round a course on Colin McRae: Dirt 2. Impressive. Most impressive.

Last year, handicapped gamer Chuck Bittner created a petition to underline the importance of remapping controls in video games.

The publicity surrounding Gareth's plight has helped increase numbers further and the list now stands at over 22,000 signatures. Developers - and EA in particular - please take note. ®
