Blind Person Beating Zelda: Ocarina Of Time w/ CommunityHelp

Postby acsguitar » Tue Jul 28, 2009 3:28 pm

Pretty amazing stuff on youtube.com

I got confused on Ocarina and I could see everything.

This guy or girl is blind and is using the help of Zelda fans in the Youtube community and gaming community to guide him through Ocarina of time.

This is an entirely community-driven project.
These are videos of me, a person blind from birth, playing through Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, with the help of five Zelda fans on YouTube who have put a very generous amount of time and dedication into writing very specific, script-stile directions that have allowed me to navigate through the game.
Thanks to BlizzTora for his help with this segment.
Heart piece at the market, nothing special.
If you are familiar with OoT and would be willing to help with the directions, or would like to see the directions for a specific part of the game, please comment here.
Please read my channel before you comment, regardless of what your comment is.
Thank you, and enjoy the run!

Very impressive.

However, I hope I'm not being insensitive when I say I can't see how the player is having any fun doing it. The accomplishment itself is amazing, but I can see the task becoming very boring...

Well i think they have given him story and explanation and stuff like that. Apparently he beats bosses and stuff on the vids.

I'm guessing that the allure and reward of doing something that nobody believes you can do makes it worth it for him.

I don't understand the big deal. I bet I could beat the game with that much help too.

I think you underestimate how frustrating it would get at some points...

It wasn't the most difficult game I've ever beaten, but there are definitely some very tough spots.

Water Temple? I'm not there yet but it almost makes me not want to continue since I've heard of it's sadistic difficulty. Then of course there is that one person who goes "Oh I beat it on my first try"

Water Temple is ridiculous and easily the toughest level in the game IMO. It took me a while to get past that part.
