Open Discussion: March 22nd, 2020

The latest Open Discussion has arrived as of March 22nd, 2020. If you don’t know, this series is all about discussing old, current, and new things happening around the world. You can post up anything that comes to mind in the comment section where you can talk about video games, movies, world events, or anything without facing censorship.

Anyone looking for a place to share something that may be of interest will find that this board, which appears every week on OAG, allows for all types of discussions. The Open Discussion series enables readers to participate and engage in a variety of topics without any restrictions.

Moreover, the Open Discussion series also features specific topics to partake in if you can’t think of anything to jot down. If you do not want to partake in the Open Discussion and wish to change the subject to something that you feel is more interesting/pressing, feel free to do so.

Like any other Open Discussion, if you have something else on your mind and wish to share it, you are free to post it up right here. This means that content unrelated to this very topic of the PS5 and Xbox Series X’s specs can be shared without being moved to another section.
