Of course...the other members of Billy Idol’s punk band, Generation X and they have what still may be the most cyberpunk video ever.

It is remarkable how many Clockwork Orange references are in that video - the movie was banned in the UK at the time, so its not clear how many of its teen audience would have recognized that. A Clockwork Orange was so far ahead of its time it is crazy.

I can do the same with OD&D and some imagination! No need for any kind of ruleset when I can just make everything up myself! Yessir!
Very true, but i am too old and tired to do that, which is why i liked the aforementioned book, i can just add little bits as i need them. But seems like Dungeons and dragons is stuck in the damn realms forever and does not venture much beyond it now days. But we will see where the hell they are going this next year, maybe Greyhawk, Darksun, Plainscape, who knows.

Because metric is superior in all features except if you only have a populace that can only divide by 2. Disclaimer I HATE the imperial or US measurement system.

I can do all the same and more with ultramodern redux 5th editon, the 2077 video game looks fun though

Ultramodern redux 5e lacks the Cyberpunk setting. And it's 5e, so it's not Cyberpunk, so pass.

The only 5e game I'm looking forward to is Stargate. The classes only go up to level 5, than its classless after that.
 

For Cyberpunk 5E, I do like Carbon 2185. Technically I would use that system for my Cyberpunk "Red" games while using the actual Cyberpunk Red/Night City/etc, etc, for world lore and names and stuff.
 


I ran CP2020 back in the day. My campaign involving the team serving as security / roadies / gofers for an up and coming all female Rocker band. Lots of drama, trauma and firefights. One roadie tried to impress the girls with a Mr. Studdd sexual implant he had planted on his forehead. The band was unimpressed, but the rather androgynous publicist took a liking to him.

The new edition is tempting. There are elements of the cyberpunk genre I really like. But it actually took a campaign with a specific theme to it to get me into the game. Our first (short) campaign was the traditional on-the-edge mercenary team of cyberpunks and I had a hard time finding motivation. Then our friend started a cops campaign. All the PCs were cops in our local city (Madison), using landmarks we knew but punked up. Crazy TV Lenny was now the mayor, the Capitol dome was dwarfed by corporate high-rises, our precinct was in the old Armory on the UW Campus, etc. And he had good NPCs like Whiskey Dick Halsey and Duty Sergeant Cecil. It really made the game for me.

Definitely! I can remember dancing to them in clubs as a teenager.



Looking forward to checking this out. I feel like back in the day, I gave more time to Shadowrun than Cyberpunk 2020, though we played both. And these days I'm not too keen on Shadowrun, other than Shadowrun Anarchy.
I’m also a big fan of Anarchy. Eagerly awaiting the Anarchy 2050 book...

well then, genefunk 2090, then how about that one, or the spy game for miodern feel, or the rocket age for the old golden age of buck rogers, still just backed one that is Cyberpunk & Sorcery, set in a dystopian 2090 called "Lowlife 2090.

Those are separate books not in Ultramodern5. Apex is a pretty cool take on supers and Neurospasta is a neat cyberpunk setting but I could never find people to try them out.

Unfortunately I live in an area where the only 5e stuff people will play is D&D. It's pretty diehard here like that.

GeneFunk 2090 is cool. The designer is an actual geneticist (if the article about it is correct). Carbon 2185 is bland.

They make good source material for stealing from for my own use, but I'll never get to play them.

There is a chance now that people will be interested in Cyberpunk Red because of 2077 and if Mike Pondsmith does things correctly he could find his rpg having a sudden player base of thousands of players, possibly a lot more. Especially if he was smart and gave everybody who bought 2077 a free pdf copy of Red's core book.
