You’re not a hardcore gamer if you don’t lug your wide screen tv and your PS4 to a McDonalds outlet and play there. Max Clayton is definitely a hardcore gamer because he did the same for 45 mins with an audience watching as well.
Max Clayton caused Maccies’ staff and customers to do a double-take when he did just that at a branch in Plymouth.
He lugged his PS4 and 32-inch widescreen telly into the restaurant, and played Monopoly while enjoying his Big Mac Meal. His pal Steven Anderson caught the whole thing on camera.
Max said: “I’d been up for doing something like this for quite a while.
“I wanted to take the biggest TV in my house but didn’t have the transport until Steven came with me.
“At first, we struggled to find a McDonald’s with a plug socket so we actually went to another one before there.
“Then we managed to find a socket in the Marsh Mills branch.
“We went for a McDonald’s and I hooked up the PlayStation to a plug under our table.”
And Max and Steven were quite surprised to find that the staff had absolutely no objections to him gaming while eating.
He added: “The funny thing was, the staff said the only problem was what game we might be playing. I’d brought Grand Theft Auto with me but because it’s an 18, we had to change it to Monopoly.
“We were in there for about 40 minutes in total and we had a couple of people surrounding us watching the game.
“Some people were stood in the line looking over.
“We used to be trouble-makers but now we just want to make people laugh.”
Friend Steven added that this is just the kind of thing he’s used to, being pals with Max: “Max is a very strange person. I suppose you might call him eccentric. We just come up with lots of weird ideas together – lots of ridiculous, stupid ideas.
“The whole thing was just a laugh – he must have been playing for about 45 minutes.
“A few people walked past our table to get to where they were going. I think they were giving us funny looks as if to say, ‘what are you doing?’
“A staff member was watching – I think that member of staff was quite amused that we went so far. Another member of staff came over to say they’d never seen anyone do that before.
“I think there was an air of disbelief but they didn’t have a problem with it at all.”
Fair enough, if hipsters can plug in their MacBook Air in coffee shops, why can’t this fella do this?
