After 5 years playing, blind gamer Terry Garrett has perhaps topped his personal gaming achievements: he beat The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
Garrett navigates the game world through the use of stereo speakers–that is to say, he can listen to sound cues coming out of the left or right speaker to judge where enemies are, find collectibles, etc.
Many the Legend of Zelda puzzles rely on needing to memorize patterns. Garrett did extensive research on the game before he began playing, and used an emulated version so that he could save frequently.
“Who knows what is next!” Garrett wrote in the description of his final video, “Thanks for all those who have stuck with me through this series even after it seemed like I was giving up.”
In the video below, Garrett talks about his gaming process. Check it out:
Garrett has also played Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, which he can still play by ear. Here’s to his next gaming conquest!
