'Syndicate' is Prime Cyberpunk
The 2012 shooter embraces the tenets of cyberpunk fiction, especially for naming conventions.
Starbreeze's underrated 2012 shooter Syndicate is a perfect encapsulation of the cyberpunk ethos. It has dark, corporate-sterile environments, touched by neon. It features wild technology, dynamic combat and a hack-almost-anything mechanic. And best of all, it stars a guy with the absolutely most cyberpunk name ever.
Watch Waypoint Editor-in-Chief (and huge cyberpunk fan) Austin Walker count the ways that Syndicate hacked the way into his heart in this week's Guide to Games.
