The Cyberpunk style entered pop culture thanks to science fiction writer William Gibson, author of “Neuromancer” and “Johnny Mnemonic”. Neither did he escape video games: today anyone can plunge into the abyss of chaos and walk through cyberspace. Fear of “black ice” and dreaming of new augmentation.
In anticipation of Cyberpunk 2077, Farsilinux.org remembers the top ten game titles of this genre. There is any kind of game for every taste. From story-driven shooters to visual novels with a mandatory stop at a neon-lit bar.
List of Best Cyberpunk Games
Blade Runner (Cyberpunk Games)
Fugitive multipliers (bio cyborgs made indistinguishable from humans) carry out a massacre at the pet shop. Ray McCoy, a detective from the Los Angeles police department, was sent to investigate the crime. In the course of the trial, he himself becomes a suspect in the murder of civilians, and then actually comes under the arms of Blade Runners. Maybe McCoy is a multiplier.
Based on a film of the same name by Ridley Scott. Westwood Studio has created its own story which events coincided with the original source. Everything that makes the viewer fall in love with the image is available. Detective investigations, hard choices, doubts about their own nature, and dirty, despite the high-tech streets of Los Angeles. It’s important to note that the game is redefining who will be the multiplier every time. And all events happen in real-time: if you wait too long, you may lose important witnesses or evidence..
The player is sent to the imminent, gloomy, and gloomy future. Where all the most famous conspiracy theories from the Illuminati to the Reptilians are true. Society is slowly sinking into chaos, the stratification between rich and poor visible to the naked eye.
And besides that, mankind also suffered from the “Gray Death”. A very dangerous disease that has succeeded in paralyzing the world’s population. In the role of a government agent, the player has to perform many different special operations and find out what “Gray Death” really is.
For some reason, Deus Ex regularly makes its way onto various lists of the best games of all time: it’s Immersive Sim that is exemplary. Offers non-linear play and multiple ways to solve the same problem. This game was the start of a series: the prequel Deus Ex: Human Revolution, released in 2011, was immensely popular.
Daniel Lazarski, an observer. A private investigator from the company’s police department receives a call from his son, who is worried about his own life. After being in a “C” slum, Lazarski found his son beheaded. In addition, the entire building is closed due to damage, and now the detectives must not only find the killer, who is clearly hiding somewhere nearby but also find a way to return to the civilized world of the gloomy backyard.
Lazarski was Rutger Hauer’s first and last video game role. Observers are impressed by the vibrant atmosphere, combining post-Soviet cyberpunk (events taking place in future Poland) and horror. Daniel’s observers can connect with the consciousness of others, including those who have died. This game raises difficult questions about transhumanism and the limits of human consciousness, which, combined with aesthetics, create an indescribable image.
