Final Fantasy XIV
AbleGamers is the "largest community of gamers with disabilities on the web,"along with being a non-profit organization that works to help folks with disabilities enjoy video games. AbleGamers reviews games as they come out, but not in the traditional way. Instead, games are rated based on their accessibility and the options available to disabled gamers who may need to customize their gaming experiences.

This year, Square Enix's Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has taken top honors as AbleGamers's accessible mainstream game of 2013. The organization cited FFIXV's customizable control scheme, adjustable UI elements, and use of text-based story text that moves at the player's pace as strengths for gamers playing with disabilities.

Producer and director Naoki Yoshida accepted the award, taking a moment to highlight the Square Enix team's work toward making the game accessible and stating, "I would like to formally express my gratitude to AbleGamers for recognizing our efforts."
