Han Cilliers from MWEB GameZone takes a look into the Cyberpunk genre and at Cyberpunk 2077's potential to deliver a game true to the culture.
The essence of Cyberpunk has been summed up in these few words, “high tech and low life” by many. It sounds like a fairly straight forward genre, yet it is easy to misrepresent. It’s not only about future tech, sleazy cut scenes, and crooked cops. Many video games have paraded under the banner of cyberpunk but, missing the subtleties of the genre, have failed miserably to capture its dark heartbeat.
