Best Video Games with "Low Vision Onboarding" Accessibility Settings

As part of our Accessibility Report, this page lists games that have been flagged with accessibility settings in the following areas.

Getting Started: Each of these games has been assessed for what support is offered to get started with the game. This includes customising the experience when you first open the game via any onboarding processes it provides as well as tutorials and other assistance when you first start playing. Each game offers the following accessibility features and settings:

Onboarding Before Play: Before you are presented with the home screen, onboarding settings aim to aid you accessing the menus you need to adjust the game to your requirements. They can also provide an easier way of turning on important adjustments without digging through menus.

  • Low Vision Onboarding: The first time you open the game, the default text is high contrast and font size is at least 1/20 (46 pixels on 1080 screen) the height of the screen and in an easy to read font. This enables legally blind visually impaired players to get ready to play.
