Here at Gamecritics, we’ve been adding information on accessibility to our reviews for over a decade. It’s an issue that’s important to us, and we want others to see its value – after all, we love games, and we want as many people as possible to love them too! However, it’s really hard to love something that’s not willing to let you in, such as games that lack subtitles or visual cues, for example.
