With Cyberpunk 2077
looming over the horizon, many fans of the genre are itching to dive
back into the genre often described as “high tech, low life”.
With great novels like Neuromancer, Do Androids Dream of
Electric Sheep (later adapted into the film Blade Runner),
Altered Carbon, and Dome City Blues, and epic films
like Total Recall, The Matrix, and Akira here's
to hoping that Cyberpunk 2077 brings to light a genre of
gaming that with the exception of a notable few, is painfully lacking
in AAA titles.
As CD Projekt RED, the
brilliant creators of The Witcher 3 are behind it, we'll surely
have an amazing game to explore. Just like The Witcher series, it's sure to be full of top notch storytelling, characters so real
you'll almost miss them when they're gone, and a world so vivid that
you'll swear you can almost feel every warm drop of rain as it beats
down on the back of your neck.
Until it's release (sometime
before June 2019, according to recent hints by the developers),
here are a few games listed in no particular order to help you punks
scratch that dystopian future itch.
