Blind teen amazes with video game ability

Respect!

Blind since birth when his optic nerve didn't connect because of Leber's disease, Mellen honed his video game skills over the years through patient and not-so-patient playing, memorizing key joystick operations and moves in certain games, asking lots of questions and paying particular attention to audio cues. He worked his way up from games such as "Space Invaders" and "Asteroid," onto the modern combat games

Respect indeed. The patience he has shown deserves respect.

However, the last of the interview puzzles me. He wants to study video game design!?! How is that possible? did he mean the accoustic design? That he would be perfect at.
