You know, that's possible - but computers and computer games were so just so trendy (and newly merchandisable) in the early 1980s that it's just as possible the entire storyline was driven by the thought that being "with it" was good box office. You look at other popcorn movies of the time, like WarGames or TRON, and you see some of the same "parallel thinking" that you still see in the movie business now.
