Guy Beats Ocarina of Time's First Three Dungeons With A Blindfold On

It's the last day of Awesome Games Done Quick 2015, and to celebrate, speedrunner Runnerguy2489 played a few dungeons in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Also, he did it all blindfolded.

Yep, he played through a solid chunk of the iconic N64 game without looking, finishing the first three dungeons thanks to some meticulous use of sound cues, glitches, and sheer memorization. The run lasts about an hour and a half, and it goes from Link's house until he picks up the ocarina. Be warned: there's a lot of jumping, menu-hopping, and trial-and-error as Runnerguy2489 bounces through the game. It's also full of moments that are pretty goddamn incredible.

You can watch the whole thing right here (run starts about two minutes in):

    This was amazing to watch, and when he explained why he was doing it, it made it all the better. Both this and Vanquish being run one-handed made this year's AGDQ the best yet.

    Didn't somebody do this on Twitch with the whole game a while ago?

    I was pretty sure Kotaku posted the link to the video where he got stuck because he accidentally glitched out of the game and got very confused for quite a while =P

      i remember this too actually, was hilarious. i think it was just someone accidentally discovering a new glitch or something maybe? don't remember it being a full run

        The video wasn't a full run, but it was taken from a twitch stream of him either attempting or completing a full run.

    Surprised you guys haven't reported on the guy from Perth, Western Australia who won the Goldeneye speed run race against 3 other people at AGDQ the other day. Luke Szklar I think his name was?

      Yeah, Luke Sklarz is his name (aka homeonice).
      He has plenty of Goldeneye speedruns on youtube if you want to look into it further.

    Wasn't there a blind guy who beat zelda? I'm pretty sure I read it on kotaku a few years ago.
