Great initiative Barrie!

I have
- voted (of course!)
- blogged about it here http://igda-gasig.org/2015/12/14/promote-very-broad-difficulty-adjustment-in-games/
- and linked it from the start page of igda-gasig.org

> And yet, it's one of the most inclusive accessibility features. Offer easier play options, and make the range as broad as you can. There's no such thing as too easy for many players.
> From a selfish side, Xbox One games having  very broad difficulty level adjustment would make many games easier for those using "Gaming Redux" methods (reducing controls down, such as a standard joypad game down to one-stick and a couple of buttons, or at the extreme end, down to a single button/switch).
> I'm rambling. Would be hugely appreciated if you'd take the time to sign-up/sign-in and vote. Especially for the game difficulty area!
