  • Blade Runner

    Blade Runner
    A science fiction movie directed by Ridley Scott in 1982, set in 2019.Replicants have the same intelligence as the humans seeking to keep lifelong energy. The film leaves the audience to answer for themselves the question "If replicants are just like humans, how many humans are human?"

  • Cyberpunk 2020

    Cyberpunk 2020
    The genre of Cyberpunk even includes games.Cyberpunk 2020 is a role-playing game. It includes multiple elements associated with the 1980s, such as the idea of "glam rock". The game focus more on strife, high-tech weapons and cybernetic modification. Performance improving and recreational drug use is either faded-out or discouraged. I believe through this game we can learn something.
