A teenager in his bedroom playing Global Thermonuclear War 'online' via his IMSAI 8080 in the classic movie War Games - Jason from the Centre for Computing History shows us their IMSAI 8080

N.B. To clarify, both Jason and Sean have seen War Games. At the time of filming neither had seen the film "Ready Player One", which was not yet released.

(War Games features in the Ernest Cline book "Ready Player One" - whether it survives the transfer to the big screen remains to be seen)
