      Chuck Bittner

This petition is from my perspective as a disabled gamer who finds many games today are unplayable simply because of my inability to reach certain buttons. These game would be playable and enjoyable if a disabled gamer like myself could simply remap the buttons in the games options menu. Millions of disabled gamers around the earth NEED THIS feature.

Also many more non-disabled gamer long to have this feature as it would help them enjoy gaming even more.

Option 1. Developers: Please spend the time and resources to build button remapping into your games. Making this a standard feature in ALL your games.

Option 2. Console Manufactures: Build a button remapping feature into your systems. What are the benefits of console side remapping?
1. It will free the game developers from needing to do any more coding or QA testing.
2. One remap for multiple games. For example if a player has one Call of Duty layout he can use it across all Call of Duty games.

In this day and age custom button remapping is easy to implement and beneficial to every gamer disabled or not.

Thank you for reading.

Sincerely
Chuck Bittner

      In this box I'm supposed to state why this is important to me.... Gaming should be available for everyone!

      This is a need for many gamers and really is something that is hindering the industry as a whole. I for one could not play any games that did not have such a feature for near a years time due to just breaking my wrist while on others I could tailor the controls otherwise. It holds back the industry by not allowing the freedom of choice in a simple matter which in this day and age should be a given when it was a standard for games before this generation.

      i believe everyone deserves a chance to play and have fun no matter what you might have restricting you.

      I'm signing this because a very close friend of mine is a recent quadriplegic and has always been a video gamer. This would truly benefit him for a happier life. I'm wanting this to happen for Abe Lukens and others like him!
