The chinese internet is mainly baidu, the contents of which is just cheap entertainment.
Honestly, modern chinese youths seem no different from millenials elsewhere, and it's hard to find stuff outside the mainstream because censorship.
The best thing about chinese language is the ancient literature.
I'd argue Hong Kong's culture is in many ways more attractive, but they all speak english for the most part anyway. You can learn cantonese, but it's fucking hard (6 tones + 3 entering tones) and not even strong in business anymore since mandarin is kind of the english of the chinese world (other than, you khow, english!)

I know lots of experimental/ambient music that uses french recordings, most likely due to their pioneering of electronic music, so I would consider this /cy/ (not the written language).

With the direction humanity is going its pretty easy to get the cyberpunk asthethic, but what would be some polar opposite examples in society?(urban, not some random village in africa or something like solarpunk).

In contrast to that, the expectations of european culture-pessimists of the 20s and the dreams of the early fascists.
Germany won world war1, or it fell completely and the consequences were total victory of totalitarians. The world is a stage of warring empires seeking realms of autarky. Technology for the nobles and the rich but the rest might not life too shabby due to set rations or a life as humble peasants in the shadows of industrial cathedrals whose dwellers and their machienes they hardly understand-five social castes away from their reality, as the miserable have been already killed in eugenic fervour or send out to die in some glorious war, of which there are still plenty.
Excentric citystates like Eumesvil and the new republic of fiume sport strange societies ruled by autocrats who manage to sustain weird orders in their vision and the world is balkanised into wow themepark realms were fantasy races of men are bred by their masters.
Either that, or a worldstate assumed total control, brave new world, 1984, there is no room for the capitalistic excess and consumer or corporate culture of cyberpunk as the state is the only brand allowed.

i think culture has shifted due to all things cyber written and inked in the 70s-90s becoming mainstream. i mean, the matrix is /cyb/ af, and that was heavily funded by a big studio. cyberpunk effectively became mainstream. so much of what gibson predicted came true. some of it we're living due to hardware getting so cheap. i have scores of systems laying around that i can throw stuff on. phones are dirt cheap too. we're living it. Thoughts?

Lol I'm no economist but I don't think it's value would increase at all. If it's super easy to get, there would be more coins which in turn makes them less valuable. Not to menton it'd have to compete against BTC and all the rest.

I'm making a cyberpunk adventure game inspired by pc98 game aesthetics, snatcher etc.
I'm still doing my own thing, but I think that's the closest I can compare it to.
It's still way too early in dev to even show it off, but I'm workin on it.

I'd appreciate knowing what would you like to see in a game like that, graphic wise, gameplay wise etc. could be examples from other games.

I should mention that there is a supernatural element to the game, suehiro maruo/junji ito inspired stuff.

Add a skinny tower which has an elevator that takes you to the top and then flying ships underneath you and you have to jump at the right time or you get squished. Add phaser guns to shoot enemies. Add multiple planets and a market that you can buy things at and an open world option which lets you just go around and explore. Add ai's that talk to you like a VN. Add underworld. Add music. Don't use GTK!

What do you see as the quintessential cyberpunk film?

 No.1011

File: 1594025390916.jpg (44.22 KB, 450x691, bladerunner.jpg)

for me, it's blade runner (1982), the film that got me into cyberpunk in the first place. it's excellent, one of my favourite films of all time, and arguably the most well-known piece of cyberpunk media. there may be better cyberpunk films, but none have come close to making an impact as large as blade runner.

What would be /cyb/ perfect room? Clustered? Full of wires?
I always wanted to make a room as similar to me as possible, so i could spend my entire day in it and enjoy it's aesthetics.
Post pics or describe specific things that you think it would make your room look nicer of possible.

Neon lights and colourful LEDs.
Some kind of anarchic work and tinkerplace occupying the room. The wires must come from somewhere afterall and the low life makes money recycling electronics, breeding something into marketable offspring, or having an oversized wildly modded together cpu dominating the room for some nefarious online sheme in its rented apartments or improvised hideouts.
If you dont have a hobby like that and are willing to life in the junk of all the shit you collected from your cities dumpsters or sustain a humongous electricity bill for a gamerPC set up taking up half of your room or a bunch of aquariums and lavalamps bubbling away with lit up liquids as part of an omnious trinket collection that will either gain you the admiration of your guests or many confused questions this might get somewhat complicated to pull off.
The coroporate jobber low middleclass or anyone with an officially listed income might life in prefab appartments where most surfaces are made of some stuff or plating that looks as if it was quickly assembled like IKEA furniture, most surfaces being in use for something as space is expensive in the 21th century. The less cramped places might follow a somewhat pleasant industrial design.
If you want your room to look from the inside like a 70s multistorybloc looks from the outside you need to commit seriously so it doesnt look hideously or ends up being a problematic construction and if you got a landlord this might end up not achievable.
Darkness and colourful lights, a careful selection of furniture(Steel cabinets?) and wallpapers or even concrete/rust optic spatula technique coatings for selected walls if your landlord is ok with it or you are lucky to own your four walls might take you to a desirable outcome tho.
