After almost three long years since blind gamer Terry Garrett’s last upload in his Ocarina of Time Let’s Play, I had begun to accept the seemingly sad reality that this incredible playthrough had come to an end. Today, however, I’m pleased to report that MegaTgarrett has made his triumphant return!

If you’re not familiar with this inspirational gentleman, Terry has been blind since the age of 10. Despite this, he has proved that his loss of sight is no obstacle when it comes to gaming, demonstrating his amazing ability to play Ocarina of Time using only the game’s audio. As well as a demonstration of his own stunning skills, it’s a true testament to the masterful sound design of the game.

For fellow followers of the playthrough, Terry is continuing from where he left off in his last video, and has now begun his conquering of the Spirit Temple. He currently has two new videos uploaded which you’ll find below, wherein he completes the child portion of the temple. His fight against the Iron Knuckle is awesome; seriously, he’s like the gamer equivalent of Daredevil.

Stay tuned and subscribe to Terry’s YouTube channel for future updates in his ongoing playthrough, and for newcomers, check out his first episode below, in which he provides a fascinating explanation of his setup and how he uses the sound and emulator save states to his advantage in order to aid him through.

It’s truly made my day to see Terry back on his quest, and it’ll be a glorious moment indeed when he finally defeats Ganon and saves Hyrule. We’re all rooting for you!

    Was this the guy that reached out to Runnerguy2489 for help? I watch his stream of a blindfolded oot challenge and he mentions he was inspired to do it by a blind gamer who reached out to him over the web for help on how to beat the game.

      No, that was genuinescorruption. The two are often confused but have distinctly different stories.

      MegaTGarrett, as the article mentioned, was blind from the age of 10.

      The person I helped, genuinescorruption, was blind from birth and had no previous knowledge about OoT before getting into it.

      Both of them used emulator and savestates to “redo” sections they would make mistakes in. MegaTGarrett on his own, based on what I believe is his previous knowledge of the game (I think he played it before going blind). genuinescorruption had helpful steps written by me and a few others in the community, but would still get lost sometimes. Both of their youtube videos would often edit out a lot of the “mistakes” so they look like they are cruising through it pretty good, but they definitely had their challenges!

      My own challenges are also based on my previous knowledge of the game, but I obviously can see and get visual feedback the next day on what I did, so in my opinion it’s far less impressive, even though I am playing on console and therefore can’t savestate before every critical jump or move.

        Wow, thanks for the response, man. I had no idea about the specifics, thanks for filling me in. I feel humbled.

        Oh, I see. You helped this guy:

        And now this guy:

        has returned to keep progressing in the game.

        It helps to actually read about things before saying dumb stuff.

          Yep that was him!

          It’s cool man, you didn’t say anything dumb!
