Fighter or Beat'm'Up games is the mainstream genre of games that are mostly 
accessible for blind gamers. Titles include Tekken, Mortal Kombat and Soul 
Calibur. I guess you already know about Brice Mellen from Lincoln, Nebraska, 
who beat Ed Boon (developer of Mortal Kombat) in a game of Mortal Kombat.

Other games that I know include Grand Theft Auto (including the first two!). 
These games are highly 'playable', meaning that it provides enough auditory 
cues to, let's say, walk around the street, hijack a car, drive around and 
make a mess - basically play *with* the game, but not play the game.

Other examples don't immediately spring to mind unfortunately...
