I hate how angry I become over colorblind related difficulty in video games. This isn't a fucking challenge I can overcome so I just feel penalized for existing and playing a video game. This is such a common problem and yet it's uncommon to see it fixed.

I'm going to just start hard passing on every game without color blindness adjustments.

Yes good. There’s no excuse. If I as a junior UX designer can solo pick usable colors, companies making millions can 110% do it.

in the education sector of web design where I work, color accessibility is an enforced standard. It took a few months but it’s second nature now for anyone with a job in that field. so I can’t understand why video games are still struggling with this

it’s really easy to check for too, there are even tools that instantly compare two adjacent colors & return a pass/fail

Exactly. It's one accessibility feature that helps 33% of people on the planet.

It would be so easy to fix, too. Esp in GOW. Just sub in blue for green or red (depending on which color you are deficient in). Or make the health/rage orbs different shapes. Or add a +/- sign over the health and rage orbs. So man ways to deal with it...

I do the same wth all 3D and VR things, since I have a vision problem that doesn't allow them to work for me :-/

That's so frustrating. I'm really sorry. Is it a depth perception issue or something different?

I have vision impairments, so, I get absolutely wrecked at times when needing to search for fine details.

Well, 8% of males. Though depending on which approach you take with the solution it may help 100% of players.

I’m embarrassed to say, but color blindness is something we have not tackled yet in our games. We will get on it ASAP. Any feedback on how to make fully colorblind accessible is welcomed.

Also, if you're a Unity Dev there are shop tools to have colorblind scripts.

If they're simulators they may be worth checking out, though can't vouch for their accuracy. Color oracle is a free windows simulator app that is pretty accurate.
