Welcome to the second September edition of OAG’s Open Discussion series that puts the ball in your hands to say whatever it is that is on your mind. The whole point of this series is to strike up conversations about anything gaming related or content that you may have found interesting in other mediums.
Like any other Sunday, today is the one day out of the week where the Open Discussion takes place here on OAG. If you happen to be new and don’t know, the Open Discussion series explores different subjects about anything — but mostly about video games — and allows you to say anything on topic or stray and post up something unrelated to whatever is being discussed.
Whatever happens to be on your mind is more than welcomed to be shared in this series entitled “Open Discussion”. As the name implies, you can openly talk about movies, TV shows, video games or, maybe, something that you are planning on doing and working on right now.
Moreover, I should note that if one of your comments face any form of censorship in that it is removed or blocked, please do let us know so that we can address the situation and restore your comment back to what it was intended to be when it was first posted.
Now, this leads to this week’s topic, which is…. a notorious game or an alleged game featured on The Simpsons and other TV shows of the past. Back in the year 1981 it was thought that a certain cabinet in an arcade found in Portland, Oregon, contained a game that drove children’s addiction to gaming to epileptic measures. The ones who were able to finish through all of its strange and newfangled gameplay were rumored to be abducted by the CIA and government for their skill, sparking rumors to be inspiration behind the 1983 film Nightmares’ second story and the 1984 film The Last Star Fighter.
None of the above has ever been confirmed true, and when debated most times ends in a stalemate. As it stands now, this strange game goes by the name of Polybius, and is thought to either be real or fake. However, one man by the name of Stuart Brown A.K.A Ahoy goes deep and wants to get to the bottom of this anomaly.
Remember, you can stray off this week’s topic or you can participate in what is assumed to be a gaming relic of the past, Polybius:
