The clamorous buzz around Cyberpunk 2077, a hyper-realized RPG adaptation of the 1988 tabletop game Cyberpunk 2020, has reached a feverish, dystopian pitch.
The game opens on “V” (a.k.a. you) absorbing the brain chip of a dead cyborgian rocker voiced by Keanu Reeves. Such is life! From there, it allows only narrative freedom in the form of so-called “Lifepaths,” as well as personal expression vis-à-vis modular avatars.
