Thread: Cyberpunk games list

  1. #1

    Default Cyberpunk games list

    Here I'm going to list my favorite cyberpunk games both vintage and modern. List your favorite games with computery visuals and/or hacking gameplay.

    1. Fract Osc - as an owner of many hardware synthesizers I just love this game.

    2. Rez - that soundtrack... Buggie Running Beeps is one of my favorite techno tracks.

    3. System Shock 1 and 2 - self explanatory
    4.Cholo (remake) - That atmosphere...

    5. Desync - cyberpunk FPS

    And there was this one demo of a game where you hacked into in using a DOS prompt but I forgot what it was called. And apparently there's an embedded video limit? Odd, never had that on a forum before.

    Neuromancer by Interplay... for the time it was made, pretty impressive (theme song by Devo, "Some Things Never Change") https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...4A8CD2161CD405

    Cyberpunk-aesthetic specifically, or any game with hacking? If the latter, then the classic RobotWar immediately comes to mind. Program your robot to kill other programmed robots. Rocky's Boots could be very slightly considered light hacking for children. And of course the Hacker series.

    There are lists available of games containing Cyberpunk and pseudo-hacking.
    Offering a bounty for:
    - Documentation and original distribution disks for: Panasonic Sr. Partner, Zenith Z-160 series
    - Music Construction Set, IBM Music Feature edition (has red sticker on front stating IBM Music Feature)
    - Any very old/ugly IBM joystick (such as the Franklin JS-123)

    Is Steampunk allowed as a sub-genre? In that case we have to include 'Bioshock', the spiritual successor to the System Shock games.

    Imagine System Shock 1/2 redone with modern graphics and sound. Oh. My. God. They were creepy enough in blocky SVGA.

    Along different lines and slightly more vintage, how about 'Beneath A Steel Sky', point and click adventure by Revolution. Quintessentially Cyberpunk story and setting. I think it even has an opening story trailer by Alan Moore (of 2000AD fame). I think it's been freeware for a while now (you can download it from the repo in most Linux distros, so you can even get it for the Raspberry Pi).

    Thanks for the recommendation on Fract Osc, DEFINITELY gonna check this one out. Seems to tick all the boxes for me, exploration / chillout game, synth-heavy soundtrack, flat-shaded polys. (Just noticed it's half off on the Humble store which helps too. :P )

    Futuridium EP is another good one if you're into that style, a little more action-oriented though. KILLER soundtrack. You can buy the 'Deluxe' version on Steam but the original was released as a free download & can still be found if you search.

    Have a look into BloodNet, an often-overlooked cyberpunk adventure that's very underrated IMO.

    Origin's Crusader: No Remorse (1995) and Crusader: No Regret (1997) - Robocop meets Star Wars on the Ultima VIII engine. Little stiff to play but it's got that quirky, SVGA-era DOS game charm and an absolutely killer soundtrack. Recommended for anyone who liked the original Red Faction. Gameplay Sample

    Speaking of Rez, another one worth considering for a similar visual direction and premise is Taito Corp's RayCrisis (AC 1998/PS1-PC 1999/iOS-Android 2017). This is the sequel/prequel to RayForce and RayStorm (both exceptional games worth checking out but less heavy on the cyberpunk angle); It's a swishy manic shoot 'em up with extremely '90s cyberpunk-deco visuals and some of the best graphics the PS1 has to offer. Gameplay is pseudo-randomized with stage ordering depending on many factors. If you're playing the Arcade version or the 2017 mobile rerelease, the gameplay and music are totally seamless between stages thanks to the low load times flash memory affords. Gameplay sample

    A couple recommendations:

    Oldies but goldies: BioForge, BloodNet, DreamWeb.

    Slightly less old: Deus Ex.

    New offerings: Observer, Invisible Inc., Dex, Technobabylon.
