This guy completed The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of time after 5 years. There's a catch, he's blind.
After 5 years a gamer that goes by the name of MegaTgarrett has finally finished The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time! Now I know this may seem like a long time, but really it’s amazing considering he is blind. MegaTgarrett has been known to crush 2D games even with his disability, and back in May of 2011 he decided to take on the task of defeating Ocarina of Time.
He uses a Nintendo 64 emulator, which allows him to so save states. In order to locate where he is in the game or where enemies are he uses two speakers on his chair in the front of his body. It’s like echolocation. He uses audio cues to tell if he is at a wall or a door by simply hitting it with his sword. He uses Navi in order to know whether he is meant to target something or not.
In the video below you can see just how he does it:<iframe style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/nmmqarQRSSE" width="425" height="350" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" />
It’s amazing that with patience and perseverance what someone can accomplish. Despite his disability he managed to do something most of the population would think impossible. If you would like to see the final battle between MegaTgarret and Gannon you can watch below:

If there was ever someone who deserves a “Gamer of the Year” award it would be this guy. Good job MegaTgarret and keep on gaming!
