We're bringing out all the feels today!
Everyone has that one video game they were never able to complete either through sheer frustration or the eventual destruction of their gaming console. But it's time to feel motivated again people, because one gamers quest to complete The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time has finally been completed.
Starting his mission all the way back in 2011, MegaTgarrett started a YouTube channel to document his playthrough of one of the most iconic and beloved games in the world since it's release in 1998. However, his achievement is far more significant than you'd think.
You see, MegaTgarrett is completely blind. Just take a second to imagine how complex and difficult it must be just to even play a video game, let alone complete the most famous one of all time!
In his first video, MGT describes how he's able to play past his disability with a genius 'stereo environment' setting: with speakers on his left side to identify his left side in the game and vice versa. He also uses a Nintendo emulator to create additional save states alongside his 'trial and error' style of gameplay.
All of these clever elements combined allowed MegaTgarrett to complete Ocarina of Time 100% independently. So if you're looking for some nice warm, fuzzy feelings on this dismal Monday morning, look no further than the video below - in which MGT defeats the final boss, Ganondorf!
