I due to RPs tunnel vision became legally blind at 21 and had to give up
driving at that point. I could still see pretty good until I was about 30. So
I still think that I have pretty good spacial visualization skills. And with
some exploring I get around new environments pretty darn good.
But when it comes to games, I am one of those who just walks around and around
running into walls and getting frustrated. Could be because I do not have
surround sound speakers or headphones or sound card, But could also be because
in the real world there is tactile feedback, wind, smells, being able to stand,
listen, turn your head back and forth etc etc. I think that it also has some
to do with how much you really really want to be able to play the game and how
many times and how much frustration you are willing to put up with to get it.
Some people have had allot of trouble with Pong, Homer on a Harley, Puppy 1,
Mach 1 and Mach 1 tts. Just can not get the play of the game pictured in their
head I guess.
I did buy a Book Sense XT and some professional stereo ear bud sort of type
microphones. I recorded a walk out to the flag pole and back. I think that it
sounds awesome! Don't know if one could get such realism in a game or not.
Reality is the only obstacle to happiness.
