On Wednesday, CNN aired a nice segment on a Jordan Verner, a blind gamer who, with the help of the gaming community beat "The Legend of Zelda." Verner had been playing small parts of the game, blind, when he decided to reach out over skype for help. Three die hard gamers responded to Verner's call -- they split the game into three parts and each copied down every single move. Verner than entered the lists into his computer, which read the instructions aloud while he played. It took him 2 years to complete, and beat the Zelda. Verner reflected, "I thought, that's far from reality, that's more fantasy than the game itself."
