Meanwhile, in real life cyberpunk you can get paid by electronic publishing companies to fabricate lazily justified listicles of video games in order to generate advertising revenue from the traffic it attracts on the World Wide Web.

That's not a bad list. I give them extra credit for including Neuromancer. It still missed several games as good or better than those on the list that are cyberpunk or sort of cyberpunk-ish.

I still have my copy of Neuromancer. Now if I could only find a 5 1/4 external floppy drive, I could play it!

Looking forward to the cyberpunk cat game coming out this year...

I wish someone would do a remake of Omikron. That game had some interesting concepts but was a bit of too ambitious for the technology at the time.

Deus Ex?
Yes!
Human Revolution?
No!

Meh, it was ok. Just consider it a completely separate game from the original Deus Ex.

Human Revolution is great until you get to the first boss and you've spec'd out for stealth/hacking.

Object lesson for devs - if you're going to outsource part of your game to another dev, keep an eye on them.

I hated that, but managed to get past it after several tries and the rest of the game is great.

You're right that they outsourced the boss fights to another developer, because Square Enix wanted the game out as fast as possible.  That developer had no knowledge of the Deus Ex series.

The GotY edition revamps the boss area so that there is a stealth route to some gun turrets that you can hack.

However, even in the original you could just use your stealth camo and throw gas cannisters at Barrett.  Took 3-4, depending on your aim and how many candy bars you had in your inventory.

I'm glad Square Enix no longer has the rights to the Deus Ex series.  Management screwed up both games.

Stray.

Yes, very much so.
Long 9 year wait for that.

I liked Cyberpunk.

I feel like people were expecting CyberGTA or something.

Though that stupid game got me to upgrade from my 1080Ti to a 3090 (only goddam thing I could find) in the middle of the pandemic and shortage.

I spent $2000 on that game and so I better like it right?

I'm reasonably sure Stray wasn't a "cyberpunk" game when I put it on my wishlist years and years ago.

It was pitched as 'be a kitty in a dystopian cyberpunk city' when shown as initial development began.

Okay, cyber city...

Who has it now? I liked the games, but the last one mostly felt like part one of a trilogy, with a very abrupt ending.

Gordon Bennett: A Mind Forever Voyaging

That wasn't a game.

That was a historical documentary that went backwards in time to 1985.

(You, dear reader, are still playing AMFV. Me? Everyone else in this thread? The concept of "Fark Dot Com"? We're just part of your simulation. That's why everything in this design document sounds so familiar.)

I felt it had less to do with the tech and more of who was at the helm.  In the right hands, it could've rivaled Shenmue.  Kudos for getting Bowie to not only do some music, but also lend his voice and likeness to a character though.

Autoerotic Defenestration: [Fark user image 757x500]


A game I still play to this day.  Rented it repeatedly after release.  Ended up buying a copy from the rental place for $5 around '96/'97.  Turned out that it wouldn't save.  Emulation was fine for a time, but I still had all my systems and decided to check the battery.  The solder points weren't done correctly at the factory.  I had a slide-in battery holder/contact for the positive, but no negative.  I ended up cutting a terminal strip jumper to shape to use as a negative contact, cut some board traces that would cause a short, and soldered it up.  Even if the battery's dead now, at least I don't need a soldering iron to swap it.  Just need to track down a bit, because I'm not doing a combo of melted ink pen body and needlenose pliers to open it.  Or I could stop being lazy and hack my Genesis Mini...probably around the time I finalize the multi-system hack of the Agetec Dreamcast arcade stick I stopped halfway through in 2007.
