    He likes Windows 10 but doesn't want Cortana? Well than disable it or something. I don't have windows 10 but I'm sure you can do that...?

    Oh my fucking god. Full offense, your friends are fucking idiots that belong in elementary school.
    Tell them:
    NO! IT DOES NOT WORK IN ANY SHAPE OR FORM NO MATTER WHAT YOU TELL ME TO DO. IF YOU STILL BELIEVE THAT IT WORKS, YOU SHOULD FIX IT YOURSELF OR GIVE UP ALREADY. NO.

    Lol it's not a Doom game if it's not like Doom 3 omfg... Doom 4 is way more like the original Doom games. Doom 3 is more like that cheesy Doom movie with Dwayne Johnson... I would barely consider Doom 3 a Doom game...

    I'm fine. More perturbed by my roommates than my friend. One's been mourning about Allison Road being cancelled all day. Mourning it like the death of a relative.

    I've been trying to drill my friend into understanding. I might be getting through. He's been lightening up on the computer thing. Probably because "If you won't listen then why the fuck do you have ears" was said by someone at some point. Not by me or him, but someone who has been listening to me negotiating with him on the computer thing for far too long.

    I love the people in this thread that are like "GO TELL YOUR FRIEND TO FUCK HIMSELF BECAUSE HE DOESN'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT TECH" like they are some all knowing being, like they have never talked to another human being before. Damn

    It's probably because of my reputation for being friends with not-so-smart people. Like, the kind of people who will download a virus from virus.com and then tell me that virus.com was supposed to give them an mp4 of The Fault in Our Stars or something. Or the people that will force their RAM into where the graphics card should go and then toss the hard drive because it was in the way of their homemade water cooling system, then wonder why nothing works and think I'm refusing to get their data onto another computer.

    Help him if you feel you need to, but do not stress out okay? There better things to worry about with your time than someone who won't cooperate.

    I know, I know. I just think it would be better to get the stress over with now, with this small problem, before it escalates later into a steaming pile of "Hey my PC won't turn on, I need this now, the hard drive's clicking and I need the important data on here right now, help." I'm surprised the PC hasn't died already, considering it was old and had to be reimaged due to viruses when he got it.

    Well then is not your problem, you tried to help him and when he ask for help with something you can't help with, is not your fault. so let it be. You have to tell him and make it straight when joke time is over and serious time is now. Being serious around a jokester is hard but you have to stand your groud and not let him change that to suit his ways.

    If he breaks something then ask for help then why should you help if he didn't listen before you told him? It is his stuff he can do what he wanna.

    Wow.. I've seen tech ignorance before but this is ridiculous. You sure are patient with them...

    Funny thing, I remember not being allowed to play GTA San Andreas at one of those 'gaming houses' on one occasion (I don't know how they call it in English, but it's basically a place with a bunch of video game consoles where you pay to play them). The owner said I wasn't 18 or older... I mean... someone in the middle of nowhere knew about the ESRB system... what are the odds? Not even my parents knew about it! This guy even pointed to the ESRB rating on the cover to explain the rating to me...

    Other hand some times I went with a friend on lan houses or these places to play VG (ps1/2 and a dynavision lol), kids playig counter strike, gta are very common, a lot not cared :v

    But everyone is all " nah it's just a videogame let the kids play"

    I don't get why people don't see this like moveis that have it's classification ,, judge the all thing like a toy wtf XD

    Other day I was on a dinner with some of my paren'ts froiends and stuff, a little guy playing GoW on his psp and I was like with his cousing " did you know that this game aren't for kids? violence and stuffs ", she was surprised because had this idea that games are just toy for kids XD
    And she went thee ask him latter " Wasing this game so much violent??"
    and he answers: "yeah sometimes"
    hahahha


    for people that don't have interest I understand that dong get these stuff ... but now the guy have a PC and want to play a new game, don't know that need to upgrade his pc? wtf

    I think the logic comes from the fact that with most game systems, you don't need to mess with the hardware or get a new one to play any games made for it (in most cases, anyway).

    You buy to last, you see that you can play every Wii game on the list on any ol' Wii without modifying the hardware, you come from a town where critical thinking is taught by internet sites rather than school or home...and there's the deal.

    At least, that's what I think.

    -----

    Update: He's stated that if he needs a new PC for Doom, it isn't worth it because he only wants to play Doom. Apparently "Don't you want Chrome to load in less than 5-10 minutes?" isn't a valid reason to get a new computer, and apparently he needs more than one reason to buy something new for himself.
