DAGERS is inaugurating a new feature on our website. The DAGERS Hall of Fame will be a running article available from the main menu, which profiles prominent disabled characters in video games.
We will update this list as needed, and our readers will have the opportunity to submit their own nominations at the bottom of the Hall of Fame page. Currently, the plan is to induct characters into the Hall of Fame in groups of ten. In order to qualify to be on this list, characters need to have a noticeable disability that is evident in the games themselves. Characters don’t need to have medical diagnoses—they just need to have challenges brought on by some sort of condition. We hope in the future our readers will aid us by adding more characters to the Hall of Fame with the goal of compiling a complete list of disabled video game characters.
