  There are different kind of handicaps, a few that I know of are:
  blindness, color blindness, myopia (pretty advanced) and others
  that I do not know about.   We can set up different levels of
  support for these people.   For example we can have a black and
  white setting for color blind, a high contrast for myops etc.
  I cannot really tell what exactly is wrong with the games because
  I do not have these problems.  Someone who might have a handicap
  might know of games he can play and how to set them up.  It is 
  hard for me to judge but, I think a lot of games to not take these
  people into account.  I am sure that a color blind person playing
  Half-Life has difficulties seeind someone that is not moving.
