Hi Reid,

I just took a brief glance at it (running around late for 
everything today!). I like the idea of the SIG Wiki hosting 
something like this and I think that we could really set the 
tone for other additions like how accessible mainstream 
games are for the visually impaired, mobility impaired, etc 
as well as how accessible certain console controllers are, 
etc. 

I agree that having one main page that lists the games in 
alphabetical order (and perhaps someday by console if we can 
get the channel 21 issue resolved) and then having them link 
to separate wiki pages that are more in depth makes sense.
