I am epileptic myself. I've seen many games that everybody loves that I would have to risk my own health and possible life to play for myself. For those of you that don't know, epilepsy is a disorder of the brain. You can read more her on the CDC website sited at the end of the description. I implore you to read it to better understand why I want this change. More than 50 million people around the world have epilepsy and thus, are restricted in the games they are able to safely play because the normalization of flashing lights and images in games.

For horror, it would most commonly take the form of a light flickering at the end of a hall. For FPS (First Person Shooter) games, it would be the flash at the end of a barrel of a gun.

At the moment, the most awareness we have in video games is a warning on the case of a game and; a second warning as the game boots up. What I hope to achieve by starting this movement is to hopefully make games more epilepsy friendly by adding a setting into the game that eliminates or reduces flashing lights/images.

If this works, many more people get to enjoy games that their friends recommend to them, and game devs get more money and support. To me, it's a win-win situation.

If this doesn't work, nothing changes. People with epilepsy don't get more recognition in the gaming world, and devs an still thrive on the money and support of people without epilepsy.

All the game devs and companies that can make this change happen are listed at the top of this petition page.
