Best of luck to him.

By the way if anyone is wondering, he plays by a script written out by 5 hardcore Zelda fans.

knox3158d ago

yea i think i heard that, nice to know that there are at least some nice people helping him out, i hope he gets through the game

Blind people can do some pretty amazing things.

Unfortunately Zelda is all text and no speech though.

knox3158d ago

gameon, saw the video, thats amazing!

Chrisny853158d ago

wow i couldn't beat that game with vision.

Max Power3158d ago

weak, how long ago did that happen? RIP

DevastationEve3158d ago (Edited 3158d ago )

Um...I've blind hacked my phone when the screen broke so that I could fish out all my contacts and saved messages onto my PC. Does that count? Probably not...much respect to a fellow gamer.

GameOn3158d ago

Didn't realise he died, poor kid.

Jmlopezbr3157d ago

RIP. I remember when I saw a documentation on him. I had no idea that he died.

It would be very interesting to see him do the underwater stages lol. Some very frustrating moments.

how? I mean bosses sure move around and sometimes you have to aim for the little spots....
I'm baffled.

hope he gets through it and really cool that people are also helping him out. good luck to him!

Wow props to this guy. This is the definition of impressive.

darthkai3158d ago

Actually, this is the definition of stupid. What's the point of following the exact button combination that someone laid out for you? Isn't that the exact opposite of what gaming is about?

Nothing against him having fun, I think it's great that people are willing to help him. I just doubt that he's really having fun. It's like a guy with no legs trying to ride a bicycle.

On the other hand, if they made custom videogames for the blind - like they make special bikes that you pedal with your arms - with specific sound effects and all, that I would get.

Hes blind and hes beating a video game as complex as Ocarina of Time.

I hope you heartless bastards that disagreed with me get what's coming to you.

darthkai3157d ago

1. Does it matter which videogame you beat with which handicap? If you're not having fun then what's the f-ing point?

2. If you really think that he is having fun, (I hope he is, but I seriously doubt it) then hook up your N64 to your speakers and follow the same instructions he does. Now compare this to any number of things you can do blindfolded (music, audiobooks, sex). Not that great, is it?

Wonderful, just wonderful. Inspiration, as is the current blind Paralympian on Dancing with the Stars in Australia.
