BLINDality


icon
 I use to think I was good at playing those fighting games like Mortal Komabt and Soul Calibur...  Then I find out I can easily get my but kicked by a blind kid...

"Brice Mellen is a whiz at video games such as "Mortal Kombat."  In that regard, the 17-year-old isn't much different from so many others his age.  Except for one thing: He's blind."

This just goes to show you, there really isn't such a thing as disability if you don't want to have one.

All you have to do in fighting games really is to just randomly mash buttons. When someone beats you in a fighting game it's just skill of the opponent being better at mashing the controller than you. :P

Sedge, please try. I've needed a good laugh for a really long time.

In games like mortal kombat all he'd have to do is be scorpion or whatever, use his grappling hook thing, then do some ginormous combo and you'd die. Man, its hard enough for me to beat people that can see...

That is amazing...I always wondered if blind people could play a game off audio alone. Hard to believe but amazing. Who knows, maybe when I grow up, and if I can become successful, I can adjust video games accordingly to audio sounds from certain games making it ear friendly for the blind. again, amazing...

He uses a regular fighting game with the regular sound effects as his only cues?  How is that even possible?

I bet I could kick his ass with the TV muted.
