Legally Blind Girl Plays Her First Game


Given the recent game console announcements, like that of the new Nintendo 2DS and Wii U Zelda bundle, I thought I would share a story that reminds us of the true importance of gaming. In the end, gaming isn’t about having the latest technology, or how sleek or cheap a console looks. It’s about something deeper: whether that is bonding with friends in person or online, getting lost in a story, finding an outlet to release anger or sadness, and so on. For a legally blind four-year-old and her family, the Wii U in particular has allowed them to fully share an activity, gaming, they never imagined possible.
