    I'm still trying to convince him to try Earthbound, though! It's surprisingly hard to sell a lighthearted RPG about a modern day psychic kid saving the world when the person you're selling it to is still having trouble warming up to Kingdom Hearts. Especially when that person doesn't like emulation, doesn't have a Wii U, and can't afford that price tag.

    Oh, he loves Pokemon. I convinced him via Pokemon Go. He loves the designs the Pokemon. The only problem is that he can't play the 3DS or DS ones... He's also apparently disgusted by the company that made the anime (source: the moment he found out that the infamous beach episode was banned in America).

    I think he has a serious problem worst and outta your control just watch him okay, please don't try anything crazy. Sure it sucks that stuff gets banned for censorship reasons and if he doesn't like somethting is his right to protest but not at the expense of others who care, he is really being selfish and from your description i imagine a very spoiled person way worst than SJW people have become. No offense to you or him :(

    Does your friend generally have trouble understanding explanations like this? Or understanding analogy, metaphor or other non-literal language?

    I think is more of not wanting to do what others want him to. is more of a refuse than psychological thing.

    I was actually wondering if he is autistic. He doesn't seem to be able to understand the analogies the OP was using to explain the situation.

    Yeah, good job.
    He just spoiled, nothing more, he wants what he wants and in fragmented unacceptable incomplete ways. Is his problem and he needs to see it himself to get fixed.:teach:

    I mean, my former friend was exactly like described by OP: Living in deny.

    If anything is not what he expect it is, he would force himself into believing it's not real.

    I think he assumed the specs were software-based, rather than hardware, and that the right programs can make it work.

    He's not the best PC user. Everything else is daisies and roses.

    He's more of a selective analogy understander. If it's PC-related he'll get none of the analogies. Last night I told him "it's like being pregnant, except the fetus doesn't exist after a couple hours" as an analogy to explain a food baby and he understood immediately.

    ...actually, he wasn't disgusted that it was banned. He was disgusted that it was made despite the potential to be banned. In his explanation, he went off about how Japan should have known by the time the episode was made how America treats boobs in media directed at children.

    Oh, if only I had a PC that could run DOOM.

    That's most of the problem. He thinks a PC is something you buy to last forever, like a house.

    He's like 26. He's lived in this town his whole life. You will find redneck, gun totin', barely literate stereotypical 'muricans in my town, so it's unsurprising he isn't that PC-savvy.

    ---------------------

    Update: "If I get a new computer I don't want that Cortana thing."

    Helping him find the PC for his needs is gonna be a bit difficult. He likes Windows 10.

    Still he is being too extreme on things but i hope your okay more than he is, since your actually a better person from what i can tell. :)

    I am not trying to be mean or rude just honest about opininon and hope he gets help. I just don't think you need to concern yourself with him. There plenty of people here who are nice and friendly that you can also talk to or play with like me :)

    But he is your friend so i suppose you can just look out for him and step aside when he becomes peter pan :P
