Charity SpecialEffect Helps Disabled Gamer Play GTA V


SpecialEffect is an interesting charity. It focuses on helping people with disabilities play video games, and one of the most recent players they helped was a man named Lee.

Before Lee developed spinal muscular atrophy, he loved to play video games, but afterwards, he lost his ability to do so. SpecialEffect developed equipment that allowed him to play by using joysticks with his chin and triggering microswitches through minor finger movements.

Now, he can play many games, including GTA V, something he never thought he’d be able to do. We’re very happy for Lee, and proud that the good people at SpecialEffect help disabled gamers return to the hobbies they love. These are the sorts of stories that remind us how much good there is in the world.

Learn more about Lee’s story in this video from SpecialEffect, and feel free to share your thoughts with us.

When he isn’t tweaking the content on GTA BOOM, you’ll find him working on the server or making other improvements to hopefully make the site better. Other than that, Trevor enjoys getting outside in the sunshine!
