[citation][nom]nebun[/nom]so much wasted time, he could have done so many other things in this amount of time.[/citation]

We could all say that, but then one person's wasted time is another's best time ever. Living life the way one wants is the best time ever. Do no harm and enjoy yourself while you can.

But how? the boss fight especially, is random. You need to "see" where to attack or where to roll to avoid getting damage etc. It's just ... how??

Wow... I don't know what to think. I can't but admire the thought, time and effort spent into this but, at the same time, was it really worth doing? Can't a blind man do a much more amazing achievement than following a computer-read script of 100 000 lines?

And, gameplay-wise, how can a script take enemy AI into account?

[citation][nom]nebun[/nom]so much wasted time, he could have done so many other things in this amount of time.[/citation]You know what? You're straightforwardly wrong in implying that has no value. I'll tell you why, 96% of people under the age of 18 play video games, and honestly this puts him in the mainstream. Where before he was excluded because of a disability, he's now managed a great feat. Simply being able to engage with others his age about the topic makes it worthwhile, some of the isolation caused by his disability will kind of fade. It's worth a lot.

AI? From what i can gather this is the original Legend of Zelda. Im pretty sure there was no "AI".

Well, you had to know which way the Dodongos would turn now didn't? What about dodging fireballs?

You're the reason why words like "hater" and "asshole" were invented. Mind your own business.
