    Jordan Verner had a dream to one day beat The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. But there was one obstacle that stood in his path; he was blind. But that didn't stand in his way, a gamer by the name of Roy, along with the help of his online buddies, decided to help this player in need.

    Probably being lazy.
    *Claps profoundly*

    I have the up-most respect for this guy, to beat a game such as OOT while being blind..........there isn't a word out there that can describe how awesome that is.

    That is the most heart warming thing I have ever heard. Makes me proud to be a part of the human race when I hear about things like this. It almost makes up for chavs. Almost.

    Anyone who ever tells you games are evil and they rot the soul, link them to this article. This should shut them up in no time.

    Considering I am not blind and I had difficulty to beat the game (i hate boss fights, gah.. and i suck at gaming in general anyway, except at pokemon games) I am impressed [​IMG]

    The guy with the blindfold was the guy helping write the script. The other guy on Skype was blind.

    Yeah I read this somewhere, pretty impressive I must say. I didn't even beat the game yet, let alone blindfolded.

    Must be so hard, and so much trial and error to beat a game with no sight, you can't rely on directional hearing because its a video game so everything just comes from the speakers and in Zelda you have no idea what any of the dungeons look like.
