With people as autistic as him it's basically a crapshoot if they get led towards something useful or not. Chris was raised the complete wrong way for someone who has the disabilities he has, so he was basically screwed from the get-go. The fact that he got obsessively and vocally interested in something that was silly was the only thing that made him stand out, compared to the thousands of other people in the same situation who have boring lives lusting after model train sets or gemstones.Chris is surprisingly coherent when it comes to toys and games; this coming from someone who actually spoke to him for a bit. He knows exact dates, which toys came in what series/waves, co-ordinates his trophy/achievement milestones, and is fairly competent at troubleshooting hardware issues (like, analog shit which would be the only kind of tech knowledge he’d have considering Bob tried to teach him about 80s computers at some point. Keyword being tried.)
It’s sad because when it comes to that bullshit he’s pretty OCD about memorizing details. If he had actually been interested, CADD wouldn’t have been that bad of a career path for him since he did spend significant amounts of time in front of the PC messing around with the original Sonichu site. Too bad that he only cares about it when it’s relevant to his imaginary ego-trip fantasy worlds.
