Since this is a community about autism and video games, I might as well ask. So many video games require a great deal of speed, reaction, and coordination--all things I stink at. It's been my understanding that my lack of proficiency in these areas is largely due to the physical limitation of my disorder. I've heard that one of the causes of autism is a malformed cerebellum, which is the part of the brain that controls these kind of things. That's part of the reason why I've been avoiding playing video games for a good part of my life, preferring to watch others play. Even now, there are probably only less than 25% of the video games out there that I'd even have a chance at playing well.
Do any of you have these problems? If so, how do you compensate so that you may still enjoy your gaming experience?
