Blind gamer playing Zelda: Ocarina of time....Unbelievable Terry!!!

Most of true video gamers, retro videogames lovers or just Zelda series fans believe that Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of time is one of the top games in video games history. A true masterpiece from Nintendo made in 1998 for Nintendo 64. Many owners of that game, including me, still play that game which has nothing to be jealous from today's videogames. In fact is back in life on Nintendo 3DS version.
But enough about the game. Few months ago a friend of mine send me a video that was a true shock for me. I knew that there are real hardcore fans of Zelda out there, but this guy is something that can't be described.
His name, Terry Garrett. A blind guy that makes us feel ashamed for complaining or not appreciating of what we have. A guy that brought tears in my eyes and shivers with his will for life and what he loves doing everyday.
Watch this video where Terry playing Zelda: Ocarina of time!!! Despite his blindness and with the help of 2 speakers and the 3d sounds of the game he shows us not only how a true gamer is but also what a true lover of life can do.....
Keep it up Terry, i totally admire your will and strength. My videogame playing will never be the same after that….

The clownish grin of a bridled parrotfish reveals its power tools: grinding teeth used to scrape algae from rock. Though sometimes destructive to individual corals, the fish's efforts are mostly beneficial. Without them, algal growth could smother the reef. Scarus frenatus
