Robert Florio: Advocate for "Accessible" Video Games
In case you missed it, please check out this cool video that washingtonpost.com put together about a disabled gamer in Glen Burnie named Robert Florio. Florio was mentioned in a column I wrote on Sunday about soldiers recovering at Walter Reed who get together regularly to play video games.
Florio was paralyzed from the neck down at age 14 after a diving accident. These days, the 20-something is pursuing an online course in art and game design. The video game fan hopes to start his own game company some day. In the meantime, he has become an advocate of "accessible" games-- games that can be easily played by people with handicaps.
