I am Jake, a legally blind dude who usually plays a lot of Retro games on original and FPGA hardware. Don't let anyone tell you what you're capable of, believe in yourself!
I am a visually impaired variety streamer. I am considered legally blind. My better eye is a 20/200 acuity. I play games for fun, and because it dramatically improves my hand-eye coordination and visual recognition. I have hypoplasia optic nerve which essentially means it is underdeveloped. It makes it more difficult for me to recognize what I'm looking at even if I'm able to see it clearly.
I do my best to focus on and improve the quality of gameplay capture, using a mix of original and FPGA hardware.
