Paul H said: Too late for NUEROMANCER? I agree with you that many features of CybePunk as a genre seem dated - any movie that majors on the pervasive networked world, the avatars and so on would condemn itself to obsolescence from the start - but the underlying themes still exist. The electronic "occupy" movement fighting the megacorporations, the cynicism and dystopic attitudes where technology has failed to deliver the utopia the marketing people promised. Big Money, Big Government, Big Oil all aligned against the Little Guy. CyberPunk offers us an outlet into a fictional world similar enough to our own that we can maybe vent some of our own frustrations and cheer on the Little Guy as he fights back against the system. Make it character, not tech, driven.
