Blind Teen Can Play Games And Wins
Posted 27 July 2005 - 09:28 PM
This is incredible. To be blind and play music, I could understand. To play some of these complicated games against an opponent and win, without help, is fantastic. I have trouble winning with my two good eyes and my glasses.
This brief paragraph on the guy said he likes to psych out his opponents.
I can't imagine playing with my eyes closed, much less depending on the audio to know what moves to make or avoid.
I'm hoping this guy makes it to college and designs some games worthy of his talent. If he can play the games out there now, imagine what he can create for us to play in the future.

It was funny that his dad commented that they went through a lot of controllers in the early days.
Many blind people have incredible memories, which I'm sure comes into play in remembering what to do to get past each screen. It sure amazes me.

But this reminds me of a story my father told me. Years ago, my father taught wood shop at a comm. college. He had a blind student who refused to believe that anything was out of his realm of possibilities.
That's great - in itself, I mean.
But this blind man thought that he could cut firewood with a chainsaw.
While he didn't injure himself or anything like that ... he still freaked out everyone who saw him doing it, including my father. Who made the guy promise to not try that sort of thing again.

sometimes when i play some game, i already know whats coming next, if the oppenent will try to attack, use magical powers or something and i either defend it or attack him before he does!
like some soccer games, i know what angle i will kick the ball that the keeper wont be able to catch and i keep stuffing him like that!
but still being blind and winning.. hats off!

I bet he can't win on Counter-Strike, impossible. How would he tell the difference between friend and foe? Nevertheless, I'll give the kid credit, winning any kind of game blind is a achievement.
That problem occures in many more games, what about call of duty or many other shooters? I think that he got some sort of mod that tells him wether he is aiming at a friend or a foe by making some kind of sound, otherwise it would be impossible be even play a shooter wouldn't it? I mean, you can't just go and shoot away just as long until you hit something. He must got some kind of help, however I still think it's amazing that he can do it, I can't even play a simple puzzle game or whatever with my eyes closed.
