    This is the first time I've seen someone describe how I visualize time also, as a line that makes a shape like a circle or hill. Same with any number line or sequence really.

    My mom took ten hours to beat the Plateau WITHOUT a blindfold and you managed to do this in under two. Mad props and another amazing video!!

    Anyone realise that genshin impact and link have sort of similar mechanisms like gliding running shooting and hitting? Or are those just used in almost every type of those games?

    There is a real blind man playing Zelda, too. He uploaded his whole Play Through of Ocarina of Time. Also, he has an IT Job. Amazing dude. Also, he is not a "I see a little bit" blind person. He is not even looking at the monitor and is only using it because of the sounds.

    This is cool and probably took a long time. Good job bro, but when people were asking for this I bet they meant just by audio cues and not memorizing the number of jumps

    very impressive and you absolutely need more views :-) super amazed by your system and you executing it practically flawlessly. even when making mistakes, you corrected them so cleverly. i’ve never seen anyone play breath of the wild quite the way you do. Nice work!

    Watching this made me realize just how differently people can think. When he started to get into colors, and shapes being numbers?? Nonononono, that would fry my brain! You know what I am really good at though? Following patterns, and memorizing specific numbers. If I were to start treating these lists like I would a crochet pattern, that's when it would start to make sense to me. I don't know what that means in terms of "You're a (blank) type learner." but still interesting to me nonetheless.

    Pointcrow describing his color and shape association to remember all the movements...that's literally synesthesia. He's literally describing both the Ordinal Linguistic Personification and Grapheme-Color types of synesthia (both of which I also have). I just think it's insane because I myself never realised I have synesthesia until I saw Anthony Padilla's video interviewing people with it, and suddenly here's PointCrow describing the exact same types of synesthesia I have and also not realizing it.

    Crow, the mnemonics of memorizing all that is awesome! I love seeing how people use mnemonics to memorize huge amounts of information. I kinda found it interesting how the months and times of day ended up being a sort of cubic function. Any idea why that might be, and why they might be similar?

    Crow's way of memorizing directions and # of hops as well as his chart of the days and weeks sounds an awful lot like Spatial Sequence Synesthesia. While I don't have it myself, my aunt and cousin both share this and it's crazy to see someone online who shares the experience!

    Hey uhhh idk how frequently, if at all, Eric reads comments but I just want to say thank you really quick.

    You’ve rekindled my love and excitement for BoTW after almost a full year of not playing. Open world games freak me out. I felt dread every time I looked at the game box on my shelf. But watching you fuck around and do things like *this* just makes me so happy, and I finally restarted from the very beginning and gave it another shot. Long story short, I’m having more fun than I’ve had in a while. Thank you ❤️
