FIFA 13 Wins AbleGamers Award

FIFA 13 has won the 2012 AbleGamers Accessible Mainstream Game of the Year, recognizing the most disability-friendly gaming titles, making this the fourth time EA has won the award.

Six titles were carefully chosen and presented to the disabled gaming community and the AbleGamers.com staff, and FIFA 13 was recognized as the most accessible title.

As noted by AbleGamers.com, "FIFA 13 is the first high-end mainstream sports game to allow users to control the entire game with only a mouse. For disabled gamers with Muscular Dystrophy, Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, and even one-handed gamers, the ability to play such a sophisticated sports game with simple controls that can be handled by a trackball or mouse mean gamers who may not have been able to enjoy iconic sporting activities like baseball, football, hockey or soccer can now take part in the fun."

The game was also recognized for its ability to be tailored to the player's needs and for introducing many world firsts for game accessibility.
