Making video games accessible to all is an important societal issue that video game studios take very seriously. The brains of people with autism develop differently than those of neurotypical people, resulting in motor and sensory characteristics that prevent them from enjoying video games. Because autism is expressed differently in each individual, the needs of autistic people are specific to each person, making accessibility parameters difficult to predict or to integrate later in a video game.

However, human social cognition is a recent evolutionary event that relies on an advanced cognitive architecture.
