Blind Zelda Fan Completes Ocarina Of Time After Five Years

A Zelda fan who happens to be totally blind has managed to complete The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Terry Garrett’s quest to save Hyrule began in May 2011 and took him about five years to finish. Garrett recently uploaded a final video that shows how he successfully used the power of sound to escape Ganon’s Castle and defeat the King of Evil once and for all. What an awe-inspiring feat!

  1. Why not just play it with a friend and have them tell you where to go and where the enemies are?? Seems like the logical thing to do…or just listen with your ears and play it over and over for 5 years works too.

    1. Says the guy with sight, lol. It may seem silly for us, but I imagine when say he wanted to beat the game he wanted to be able to say he beat it by himself.

  2. Bravo Sir. Kudos and props!
    To overcome something most blind people might find pointless, I bet he felt the same level of accomplishment as any of us that beat it over and over again.

  3. I’ll give him props for this. That’s an amazing thing to do. Also, I have still never fully played Ocarina of Time or Majora’s Mask to this day. I was so let down by that 3DS remake reveal because I wanted I my first playthrough to be a full HD experience. It would’ve been much better. I didn’t really care too much for WWHD and I think they should’ve remade MM like that instead.

    1. Jaded Ridley X3 {I'm not whining, you suckers... *cough* ..poor souls! I've just been driven insane by Nintendo failing me one too many times this gen!} says:

      YOU FILTHY GRAPHICS WHORE!?!

      Seriously, though, if you have a 3DS, give them a chance on there. They actually look pretty good with the 3D effect on. All nice & shiny which makes you forget they’re not in HD. Least for me, anyway. At least as a rental for a one time playthrough. I mean, it’s the best you’re going to get for awhile as far as the N64 titles are concerned.

  4. I’m really proud of this guy, he must truly be one of the biggest fans! I wonder how he visualizes the game in his minds eye

  5. Im sorry to be that asshole but Wtf? And why the fuck? I mean good for him and all but the fun and magic of video games are visual, some audio but that seems like a big ass waste of time…

  6. I’m not trying to be a downer here, but I don’t see how this could be possible. (no pun intended).

    There are puzzles in this game that sound does not play a role in. How would he know to walk across dungeon, three rooms over, press a button, shoot an eyeball, and find the door that opened? Not to mention find the weak spot on bosses, and grapple hook to certain pin point locations? You can’t. That’s the answer, you can’t. Sight is an absolute necessity to beat Ocarina of time, especially in the latter dungeons.

    I’m sorry, but this is impossible. Either its a fake, or the blind person had help, and if he had help then it’s not very impressive. Sorry, don’t mean to sound like a Scrooge, I have just been duped too many times by youtube. I don’t believe half of the shit I see on there.

    1. Saying something is fake doesn’t prove it is. He saves all the time. You never did because I’m guessing you can see just fine. Obviously he has had a brief explanation of what some rooms look like. Everything else he learned with his ears. You really are an asshat and you intended to be one, you cant lie bitch. Let him enjoy his victory. He’ll never beat as many games as we have/will.

      1. I intended to be an ass because I believe something is fake? Explain that one please. And calling me names is not going to make me believe this story anymore. I can show you all kinds of amazing stories on youtube, doesn’t mean they are true. And what do you mean let him enjoy his victory? If then story is true, which I doubt, I can assure you my comment is not preventing him from enjoying anything.

        “Saying something is fake doesn’t prove it is”

        Yea, and saying something is real doesn’t prove it is either, genius.
