Why have so many AAA UI designers collectively decided that we should all sit one foot from our TV to read on-screen text? It's often a reason I stop playing a game. Accessibility options are often lacking as well.

I just had a debate with my (indie) dev team and I insisted that any writing has to be voice acted and that I will keep an eye on accessibility. There was a lot of grumbling because of budget. We have a budget of 0€. AAA has no excuse.

It's definitely tough for indie, especially voice acting. But I agree, and this is mainly font and icon sizing, which should be obvious at this point.

There's a simple reason - it's designed on a big monitor 1 foot from their faces.

It's really such a shame, because eyesight is one of those things most people will have trouble with at some point in their lives. Font size options should really be standard by now.

Exactly! I do this as well, and it's just not the way I want to play PS4 games.

Because they don't test on different TV's, only rely on their monitors. Most game AAA designers work in vacuums.
