petition to rename the thing people do where they take cyberpunk and then remove the punk
it will now be called: cybercore
and y'all can go take your "politics-free aesthetic" and fuck off, cyberpunk is for when there's punk in it,,,
@haskal steampunk would be cool if literally any steampunk work ever tried to grapple with the problems associated with industrialization, imperialism, and victorian social norms, but you'll at best get a vague reference to one of those things
what kinda scratched my head about dishonored was how the game punished you for killing people "raising the chaos level" even though in a lot of situations it probably would've been better if you just rubbed them out
@haskal Sure sounds like post cyberpunk, for which cybercore would be a much better name. To truly capture attention, why not cyberwave?
