One more quarter and it’s game over!

Join David and Dave for a nostalgic trip to the golden era of arcade games as they discuss the urban legend of Polybius! An arcade game with a dastardly reputation, Polybius is infamous for all manner of conspiracies – but did it even exist? The boys spend a while reminiscing about days spent spending quarters in their youth and detail the murky history of this foreboding game cabinet. Was it a government experiment on an unwitting public? Did MiBs collect data from players? Did it drive players to madness? Lots of questions with this one, and with some simple sleuth work some answers to go with them! Grab your spare change, stone-washed jeans, and loud clothing – this one is going to be totally radical! (The Coinop Page, A Detailed Analysis, The Legend)
