The genre is basically combining advanced technology with excessive vice - that is what Cyberpunk is. Sex and/or Drugs tend to be the most widely utilised vice in the genre. Blade runner had sex replicants, as did the Ghost in the shell movies. Neuromancer may not of had much but drug usage was prevelant.

Without vices it is not Cyberpunk - merely Cyber Sci-fi.

Favourite RPGs of all time: Wizardry 6, Ultima 7/7.2, Fallout2, Planescape Torment, Baldurs Gate 2+TOB, Jagged Alliance 2, Ravenloft: The stone prophet, Gothic 2, Realms of Arkania:Blade of destiny (not the HD version!!) and Secret of the Silver Blades.
