Gaming for the color-blind

After ‘Advertising for the color-blind‘ (a post I wrote earlier this month) it’s time for gaming. Joystiq has an interesting post on the topic. I have the same color sight deficiency Conrad is talking about and some games are indeed hard to play. I haven’t played Rockstar’s Table Tennis yet but it seems indeed to be very difficult to play. I’m having the most troubles myself FPS games, recognizing enemies in the woods, I always end up shooting everybody :-)

Anyway as in advertising, it looks like in games not a lot of people take this color-blindness into account either. Would be a nice feature though to be able to change game settings to take this into account.
