The Blade Runner point-and-click adventure game still looks stunning. Westwood Studios’ 1997 adaptation was groundbreaking at the time for having multiple endings and a story that changed with each new choice you made. But it also had some dazzling, painstakingly crafted backgrounds.

Blade Runner 2049 is like staying up all night to finish a 150,000-word fanfic that you started reading, thought was good but not great, and then just kept reading because you’d committed to it, goddammit. And then the next morning, as you struggle bleary-eyed through the work day, you keep wondering if it was worth…

Snatcher Is Cyberpunk Noir At Its Best Snatcher Is Cyberpunk Noir At Its Best

Snatcher is a cult classic that should be experienced by both science fiction and Metal Gear fans.
