Accessibility was the first time I noticed trends were mandated. Accessible was the 2000s buzzword for inclusive.

I remember some article from a few years ago where they were talking about how they were trying to force all games to make their voice chat "accessible" for deaf/mute people.
Which is why a lot of newer online games now no longer feature any form of text communication.

IIRC, they're required to implement TTS or somesuch if the game has text chat.

here's the article on it, and you could be right, I forgot about all the other accessibility parts: ... fying-cvaa
"limited cognitive skills"

design games for retards or else.

It became that way and went the route of "anyone should be able to play anything". But it started out as things like accounting for things like color-blindness or reduced vision. And you didn't even have to do much other than make sure it could work with 3rd party tools like screen readers or assistive technology that the person would have already had. Now, it includes "neurodiversity". :barf:
Tears unnumbered ye shall shed; and the Valar will fence Valinor against you, and shut you out, so that not even the echo of your lamentation shall pass over the mountains.
