Polybius is one of the best-known examples of a creepypasta. The story uses several popular creepypasta ingredients: video games, a government conspiracy, mind control, and a just plausible enough premise to get even the most skeptical reader wondering if there wasn’t some truth behind the tale.
If you’re not familiar with Polybius, take a few moments to read Creep.ee’s article about what is known about this infamous video game. There. Think that you’re all caught up to speed?
Now get ready to have your mind really blown.
The YouTube channel Ahoy has made a nearly 70-minute long video exploring whether there is indeed any substance behind the legend of Polybius. Look, there’s no other way to put it, but this video is really a documentary. It’s deep, it’s exhaustive, and it uncovers new data just like a piece of true journalism. In short, it’s a terrific production, and it deserves a watch.
