 Hi Hippe,

   Besides this thread it's not really talked about to much. Thats not a good or bad thing at all. I have never used my disability as an advantage to myself. Wait, I did get on all the rides at Disneyland by going to the front of the line

 It is what it is. I have a hard time playing video games but it's my favorite thing to do. Going online this morning to play Battlefield: Bad company 2 beta. I will most likely die three times before getting a kill. Point is i'm having fun.

Yay for sympathy points. Anyways, I'd recommend Uncharted 2 where you can run, walk, shoot, roll and jump.

Hi guys,

 

Alot of you know I have been here supporting Home like most of you for a long long time. Why? My reasoning is simple. I can walk in Home. See, I have trouble playing games that use the shoulder R1, R2, buttons. Let me take a 'Step' back and explain. I don't talk about this with any of my online friends but I think I have established myself here and my real friends will understand.

 

I am a C-5, C-6 Quadriplegic. My fingers do not move. I had a diving accident when I was younger that left me paralyzed. Now those that have played online games know I can still hold my own as long as I have an acceptable button configuration. But if any of you know or have had any type of physical disablity then you know how hard it can be. Most games I play have button mapping in the controller options. Home has simple controls and although I'm sure it was not intended specifically for those with limitations it makes me happy just the same. Our avatars are not exactly as we are, as you all know. Some of you have made your avatars as you really want to be.

 

My avatar in Home is how I imagine I would look if I could walk.. To the people in the forums and my online friends, The N1's (The Nameless Ones) I'm still Jersquall. no different than anyone else in Home. Please don't think differently of me. So what's the coolest thing for me about Home?  I can walk in Home.

 

~Jersquall

 

p.s. wow, that was tough..


This is a surprise. A grand post, but still a surprise

Indeed, you are still Jersquall. Glorious.

I believe that comes from sitting by the water - on that bench - all alone - no one else to talk to - just you - by yourself - all alone *cough cough*

Jersquall,

 

Thank you for this post. It has given me a new perspective. Sony should make commercial using you and your avatar. Have the slogan "Why do I like Home? I can walk" I love that! it is touching and hits home to a lot of people.
