Blind Gamer Finishes The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time After 5 Long Years
I have witnessed some truly outstanding things when it comes to gaming, but nothing as remarkable as Terry Garrett completing The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
Terry is blind in both eyes and has never seen the game in action. NintendoLife reports that Garrett lost his left eye when he was 5 and right one when he was 10. He used a special chair equipped with speakers to split left and right audio and plays using the sound clues.
While he did not find every collectible, he started playing an emulated version of the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time five years ago back in 2011 and just completed the game – you can view a couple of videos showing when he first started and completed the game recently:
There is no arguing that this is indeed as much of an outstanding achievement as it can get, but Terry also completed Abe’s Exoddus in 2011, can play guitar, and wants to be the first blind person to land in space.
Bravo, Terry! Way to go, man!
