[BBC] Are colour blind gamers left out? - Page 6

post #51 of 93
I'm color blind to certain shades of blue/purple and green/brown. Never had an issue with a FPS game or really any major title for that matter. Only in Minecraft and AudioSurf have I ever accidentally picked the wrong block (in both games cases, lol....different kinds of blocks, at least I can tell that difference!

Wow I moved the slider on the first picture and nothing changed. That's the color blindness I have. The other 2 pictures changed. There are a few games that affect me a bit. The one that comes to mind is Luxor. I have to use the colorblind mode or I have trouble telling the colors.

EDIT: On BFBC2, Sometimes I get confused on who's my squad member and who's my enemy.

EDIT 2: HOLD ON. BFBC2 has a colorblind mode??

I know I'm colorblind, and I've only ever had a problem with it in color matching puzzle games and Shattered Horizon.

Being colorblind the only mode I played in AS was mono, and i just made the blocks yellow and gray.

Bejeweled is infuriating.

Side fact, in WWII they used colorblind people to analyze aerial photos to spot camouflaged targets.

I can't see any difference in the first and second pictures. The third one just greys out everything but a red lego person.

Its tough being a colorblind player, I can't see a lot of stuff lol.

On the first two pictures, I can see the difference, but only barely. On the third one, there's a clear difference.

Am I slightly color blind? I dunno, I've never been unable to distinguish two colors outside of this test.

Red/Green colour blind here, I can see the difference between the two when they are spaced apart but not when mixed together. Red flowers in a green tree would be an example with what I have trouble with, I can see traffic lights with no problems though.

I cant see much difference in the first image but can see the difference in the other two. I could not see the number in the chart either.
