I also recommend Shoot 1 Up. I used it for a accessibility arcade/
presentation at the Orlando Science Center this past January. I set up the
game and turned on one button mode and made the players play with an arcade
stick, and then after playing 1 round with though options allowed them to
change the settings to whatever they wanted. It was a big hit.

Additionally on Tekken 6- It also has remappble controls if you wished to
use some sort of custom controller with it.


Barrie mentioned Half life- I also recommend other Valve titles as well.
They all have closed captions and most have remappable controls. I demoed
Portal once. Colorblind friendly, remappable controls, closed captions or
subitles, no time limits. It's not violent and doesn't use bad language, so
it's good to have around kids.
