@SlightDashOfColour Is that a joke about the CD Projekt Red trailer for CP2077?

If not, that opens with a massive popped collar too.


Yes they got the aesthetic down pat at least from C2020 ๐Ÿ˜‚ This is from the original Talsorian RPG

@SlightDashOfColour Indeed it is. First RPG that I desperately sought out.


I think the "punk" aesthetic of the genre was strongest in the 80s. Both C2020 and Shadowrun came out within a year of each other.

After that, GITS and Snow Crash (taking cue from Blade Runner) swung the needle all the way to the noir end of the spectrum and the genre lost quite a bit of the rollicking mean streets vibe. After that the genre got even further infusion from the gothic movement which muddied things even further.

Ho gosh....this pic takes me soooooo many years back๐Ÿ˜‰
