TOP MUSIC GENRES FOR YOUR CYBERPUNK GAME


So I guess cyberpunk is hot again. I don't play those newfangled video games, but all this fanfare made me remember my old Cyberpunk 2020 days, when I was Jael Furoshiki, Japanese/Jewish survivor of of a destroyed South China Sea pirate pack trying to make a living in the Minneapolis Red Zone as a bodyguard/food delivery technician (yes, both a pirate and an ninja).  Later she got ported to Interface Zero, which got rid of some of the anachronisms and C2020's crazy-high fatality rate (there used to be a page dedicated to players' favorite deceased characters, sadly now lost to even the Wayback Machine).

Anyway, one time I made up musical genres my character would listen to--can't find my old character sheets, but this gives you the idea...

TOP MUSIC GENRES FOR YOUR CYBERPUNK GAME:

  • Cambo-Punk
  • Robo-Funk
  • Post-post-post-post-post Punk
  • Really New Wave
  • Black Klezmetal
  • Danish RaiZulu Techno-Jive
  • Country & Western & Gabber
  • Lo-NRG
  • Goan Garage Garage
  • Wasteland Industrial
  • Just the sound of a dial-up modem over & over
