Twitch gamer beats Ocarina of Time blindfolded

Ballsy Twitch user Runnerguy2489 played-through Ocarina of Time blindfolded in 103 hours.

Twitch user Runnerguy2489 has done what some think is impossible. He beat Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time with a blindfold on. 

Using the sounds of the game as his guide, Runnerguy finished the game 103 hours.

An Impossible Feat

Some may think that memorizing a game can be easy, but one that is as extensive as the Legend of of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is no easy task.

While viewing the playthrough on YouTube, it seems as though he was playing an original Nintendo 64 emulator, which is notoriously harder than the 3D edition that was remade for the Nintendo 3DS. Specifically, the Water Temple poses a huge threat in completing the original N64 game, where you can get stuck and have to restart.

Not to mention Runnerguy was playing the game as if it was a run-through looking for the lowest time. That means he used all the "cheats" he knew of that made the game go by quickly. This could include the back-jumping through the Hyrule field to save time traveling.

    I could definitely do this! This game was my middle school life. I've beaten it at least 7 times (sans blindfold).

    Also, you can totally defeat "Ganondorf" with an empty bottle in the forest temple battle. Just sayin'.
