If you are looking for what blind gamers like to play, have you checked 
out the Audyssey discussion list that is a very active discussion of 
what blind and VI gamers are playing and like?  Have you gone to 
audiogames.net?  If you go to our website, www.7128.com and check out 
the Top 25 websites for gamers who are blind, you will find a list of 
all the top websites complete with their URL's that will help you with 
ideas for your students.  I do know that there are a fairly wide range 
of games that get enthusiastic reviews from blind gamers on the Audyssey 
discussions so you should be able to look at the types of games that 
sighted people like and modify the mode of play to include accessibility 
accommodations for people who are blind or VI.

Glad to see you are teaching your students that, with accommodations, 
people with disabilities can and do play games.
