VIDEO: POLYBIUS – The Video Game That Doesn’t Exist

The more I watch long-form videos, the more I get recommended them, which is Youtube’s algorithm at work; encouraging more ‘watch minutes’ as opposed to number of videos watched, or interaction. Ahoy is a channel I wish I had found sooner, as it has fantastic standards of both audio and video, the former I am entirely envious of.

In this hour-long video, he delves into the history of a non-game called Polybius, an arcade game that has been in legend for at least the last twenty years or so. He unravels the mystery from present day, all the way back to the apparent birth of the legend. When I watched it originally, I was amazed by how long I had been watching; Ahoy has a succinct presentation with dedication to the facts and interpretations therein.
