It seems that as time goes by there are more and more stories popping up about how innovations in gaming are helping to bring people together in new and exciting ways. This week I came across a story of a father who only had the use of one hand, and who would do the best to play games with his son. It was a special bond that they had between the two of them, however it was limited by the complexity of the game. Games such as Diablo, Portal, and Civilization were fine, but more action-oriented games such as Skyrim were too much to handle with one hand. That was until a good samaritan Reddit user offered to set up a Steam controller configuration that allowed Skyrim to be played with one hand. It’s a great thing when people can come together over something as simple as a game. A random stranger’s kindness allows a father to have a special bond with his son through the slaying of dragons and the Norsemen. Sounds like the makings of an epic poem right there.
