Minnesota resident Paul Atkins continues to stand his ground and wait for his game to load despite the system obviously being frozen. During a session playing The Last of Us on PlayStation 4, Atkins experience choppy framerate just after a pivotal cutscene. After a few moments, the screen became completely still and remained that way permanently. Despite the game being completely unplayable, Atkins leaves the system on in hopes that the error will correct itself.
“I just made a bunch of progress and hadn't saved in awhile,” Atkins noted, sipping an Amp energy drink in his gaming chair. “I look over every few minutes just to make sure everything is still in order. I guess the old girl just needs some time to think it out.” As day seven of the wait rolls dangerously close, Atkins remains optimistic that he will soon be back in the business of deftly exploring the post-apocalyptic United States. -Mike Burdette
