Ocarina of Time Beaten by Blind Gamer After 5 Years

Terry Garrett began his quest to beat Ocarina of Time back in May 2011 on an emulated version of the classic N64 game. The only thing that was allowed in the emulation was a quicksave and reload function, but that’s it.

He explains his setup, and shows how he manages to play 3D games despite being blind in this video, which is actually really intriguing to me.


After five years, and what I can only imagine as limitless anger and frustration, Terry posted a video of his escaping Hyrule Castle and defeating Ganon. This last segment was posted on January 2 of this year, making his journey nearly five years.

I can’t even begin to imagine just how tough this would be, especially after hearing that he kept on hand on his controller, and the other on his savestate button. I remember how long it took me to beat Ocarina of Time, but Terry brings gaming to a whole new level with his dedication and love for the sport.

He signed off his last broadcast with, “After five years of taping, with long breaks in between, I have finally beat Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.”

I’d like to congratulate Terry Garrett on his accomplishment, and hope that he keeps on gaming, being an inspiration for us all.
