A Brief History of Cyberpunk

Google defines cyberpunk as "a genre of science fiction set in a lawless subculture of an oppressive society dominated by computer technology".

Timeline: The History of Cyberpunk

The timeline above attempts to provide a history of the cyberpunk genre through the development of film, novels, and video games. While the list is far from exhaustive, the direction of cyberpunk can be clearly observed. I have decided to begin the timeline with the movie 'Blade Runner' (1982), and end the timeline with the video game 'Watch Dogs (2014).
