Whoever you are Mr Roach, I salute your poetic summing-up of the current state of the industry today. I doubt there are half as many interesting or in-depth stories behind games today.

Mr Space Ace or Dave, I've never heard of Polybius until I read the thread and I probably need to look up more about it to form more of an opinion but with all the negative comments withstanding, it seems that people who have voted seem to think there is something in it.
