I agree with Charles this is a good idea.

The next step is to start gathering links about research and researchers 
related to this area (I wish we could already use Annotea shared bookmarks

After this we might have not just one but several ideas for good events 
related to accessible games or some related topics.

Would you be interested in taking it forward Jonathan?
