It's nice to see "feel good" stories from the video game world, and we get a doozy courtesy of CNN.

Jordan Vermer, a blind gamer in Ontario, Canada, put out an online call for help. He wanted someone to help him beat his favorite game, [I]The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time[/I].

Despite the call, Jordan was skeptical that anyone would help him. "I thought that's far from reality. That's more fantasy than the game itself."

That's where a South Carolina man comes in, aided by three gaming buddies. Roy Williams, who at one time earlier in life was told that he might go blind, decided to help Jordan. Williams and his friends recorded every jump, move and button push in a document that could be sent to Jordan. Jordan's computer would then read the words to him so he could follow the directions.

After almost two years of effort and 100,000+ keystrokes, the project was complete ... and Jordan finally beat the game.

"I felt great," Jordan said afterward. "I felt strong. I felt like the sky's the limit."

Check out the [URL=http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&rlz=1T4DMUS_enUS242US242&q=blind+gamer+zelda+CNN&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=]CNN news story in the video[/URL]. Definitely a feel good piece.
