Link, along with countless gamers, has been adventuring through Nintendo’s Zelda games since 1986. This Japanese favorite had its most recent title release in October 2015; The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes. With each release the games grow more sweeping and impressive, while the older games remain well-loved, especially The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
One of these fans of Ocarnia of Time includes Drew Wissler, better known as RunnerGuy2489. Already a speedrunning Zelda champion, Wissler competed in the Awesome Games Done Quick tournament. He ran three levels blindfolded to raise money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. The event helped raise $1.5 million for the organization. In addition to speedrunning, Wissler set a completion record for blindfolded Zelda play also. This expert gamer was able to complete the entire game (including all items and side quests) while blindfolded in 103 hours.
