Adorable: This 35 Year Old Gamer Still Thinks He Will Have Time For Side Quests
Need a little pick-me-up in your day? In completely adorable news, we’ve just learned that local gamer Fent Benton, a 35 year-old man with a full time job, multiple pets, a mortgage and a long-term partner, still believes he will have time to “do some of the sidequests” if he pre-orders Cyberpunk 2077 for release shortly.
Stopping into his local games store for the first time in several months (after taking a break to focus on finishing the dining room table he promised he would build), Benton went straight to the PS4 section where he picked up the box for the sprawling AAA title and stared wistfully at the front cover, like a sweet child of summer.
Sources report that Benton, who, by the way, is completely fucking adorable, is now holding the game case in his hands and turning it over as he looks at the cover art, thinking of younger days when he would absolutely 100% this bad boy without a second thought and maybe even fire up a new game plus run just for kicks. Some have suggested that he’s going to check if the PlayStation 4 is still plugged into his TV later tonight.
Incredibly, this cherubic delight of a man is now attempting to convince his patient and loving partner that it would be a great idea to purchase the game, despite an enormous Steam backlog, an in-progress co-op run of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and the pressing need to save money for their cat’s upcoming surgery. Our hearts are melting for this man, who made it 70 pages into Infinite Jest last year.
When gently pushed on the issue of him “not really playing games so much anymore”, Benton performed what store employees assure us was a “cute little frown” and suggested that he could maybe play it during his upcoming holiday, before remembering that the reason he had booked the time off to in the first place was to attend his mother-in-law’s 70th birthday.
According to his social media accounts, Benton’s favourite game is The Witcher 3, which he put an incredible eleven hours into between 2015 and 2017.
At the time of writing, Benton was being lovingly led out of the store and promised that they would return once the game was on sale, and that they could visit the food court and get “some of that frozen yoghurt you like”.
Aww! Don’t you just love to see it? Share this heartwarming story if you know somebody just like Benton, who, by the way, promised (mostly to himself) that he would defrost the freezer this weekend.
