Any players here?

Had my first game this year.. halfway through our GMs storyline. Playing a Nomad Techie... very interesting game. Do like having most of the system ran on D10s lol

I played it in high school about a decade ago. It was fun. I'm not sure how well it's aged though.

Cyberopunk is at its core, a very 80's game. The artwork alone tells you that.
Many advances in hardware have left much of the tech behind - however, I still run a CP2020 campaign, and there is a lively (somewhat) community of CP players on the net who throw ideas together and stuff.

Shadowrun 4th ed has attempted to 'modernise' itself by rebuilding the net, and allowing stuff like wireless comms and networking (all using a bluetooth analogue), but there's still too much magic and fairy stuff in it for me. For me, a dragon is a m-134 minigun with 1-in-6 tracer rounds. Not some flappy scaley lizard beastie.

Haha, yeah I admit it's quite out of date, but I would alost admit that in some ways it adds flavour to it. Especially considering the game was out before my time anyway.

Retro-future, baby!

CP 2020 is a very fun game. Nice streamlined rules, and shit-tons of cool toys.
Chromebook was like porn to me when I was playing ;-)

I still have my books...I should do a campaign...I;ve used my old (first edition CP) Night City sourcebook in lots of games besides CP, there;s just so much background info in there.

What's fiun to check out (if it still exists) is the Fuzion system. I seem to recall it was a combination of the CP rules and the Hero System rules. But it was mostly CP

The core ryules wrere free to download and therew were lots of free fan made expansions (Atomik Fuzion I believe was the name of one of the better sites for that stuff)

Best of all it was the system they used for the Bubblegum Crisis RPG, so you could combine your chromed out cyborg with some sweet anime power armor ;-)

Bubblegum Crisis was the first RPG I ran as a DM. Tons of fun. I'd definitely check it out if you can find a copy.

By the way, this thread got me back into CP2020

But it also got me curious enough to buy Cyberpunk v3 <shudder>
Never, ever...EVER buy Cyberpunk v3.

the rules are ok, it;s just the fuzion system used for bubblegum crisis...but they murdered the setting with a heaping dose of 'post-cyberhumanism' and retcon. Not to mention retarded shit like anti-netrunner programs don;t manifest in the net anymore, they assemble out of nanites and attakc your party in person

Also, all the really slick, stylish art the older editions were known for?
Replaced with (I shit you not) pictures of 12" GI Joes with bionic arms made out of Lego Bionicle parts.

The game that used to emphasize style over substance now features really shitty green tinted photos of a half-lego GI Joe battling with (and again, not making it up) a ken doll with a rubber shark head. <shudders>

Just buy every 2020 version book you can find and revel in the sweet retro memories
