Yes, a normal interlaced setup where you reuse the same field in the other frame.
If so, could it be forced in games?
Usually not, because you are forced to an incompatible 25/30Hz (PAL/NTSC) refresh.

In any case from what I remember from back in the days (with the CRTs) a little flicker is visible anyway, because between a frame and the next the phosphors turn off slowly,
it is only attenuated because the line immediately below is with the same signal.
The final effect is to have a less brilliant image, a bit flicky, but with almost invisible scanlines.
I don't think it's a mode that has any advantage ..
