The pacing didn't do much for me. It seemed far too drawn-out.

Cyperpunk/steampunk/prefix-punk is a great genre for mining potential universes. I write stories as a hobby (will eventually launch a graphic novel Kickstarter project in the near future once I find the right artist) and it is very easy to create an analogue planet to Earth's that never advanced past a certain stage or lacked an important element to advance to our stage, so they're stuck in a perpetual roadblock of advancement they have to work around.

Lain was a great show, and by that I mean I liked the setting and music, I had no idea what was going on plot wise. 

 

Does Akira count as cyberpunk because that was pretty good too.

I totally dig cyberpunk. I'm pretty sure I was a little cyberpunk once. At any rate, I'd have to say my favorite is Serial Experiments Lain. It's like a drug.

I'm sure most of you are aware that there will be a video game called Cyberpunk 2077. It will be released in the near future. A lot of people are very excited about it. Including myself.

There have recently been more films in the action genre released in this particular genre, so I guess that it is making a comeback.

I hope the photo I uploaded will be obsolete soon.

Yeah. Cyberpunk 2077 looks bloody awesome. 

What films are you talking about? I might need to check 'em out.

Sorry it took me a while to respond to this. I actually almost forgot about this thread. Here are a few of my favorite cyberpunk related films of the recent era:

After Earth, Battle For Terra, Cloud Atlas, Dark Metropolis, Edge of Tommorow, Ender's Game, Iron Sky, Robocop, Total Recall, and Tron Legacy

There doesn't seem to be a lot of punk is modern cyberpunk, though :(
