Cyberpunk games and movies have been around since the early 1980s, and they've had an unmistakable gritty, rainy, neon-lit aesthetic since the beginning. Too often games tend to use that aesthetic without remembering to back it up with cyberpunk's core themes, but for the moment we're okay with focusing on looks. As the hype for Cyberpunk 2077 builds and builds, we're getting our cyberpunk fix by soaking in the art from last decade or so of cyberpunk games. If you're counting the days before Cyberpunk 2077's launch, consider grabbing one of these stylish screenshots to freshen up your PC's desktop.

We've trawled through hundreds of screenshots (opens in new tab) on Steam and the numerous screenshot communities on Flickr and picked out some of our favourite scenes from a variety of cyberpunk games. You may have seen a handful of these on PC Gamer before, but the majority here are new, and they've all been used with the kind permission of their owners.

If one of these screens grabs your eye, playing the game itself could also help you kill some of the time until Cyberpunk 2077 arrives.

Sarah's earliest gaming memories involve playing Jet Set Willy on the ZX Spectrum at a friend's house. These days, and when not writing guides, most of her spare time goes into MMOs—though she's quite partial to JRPGs too. She has spent much of the last decade playing the likes of Star Wars: The Old Republic, TERA, Final Fantasy 14, and World of Warcraft. Sarah has been writing about games for several years and, before joining PC Gamer, freelanced for the likes of TechRadar, GamingBible, and Rock Paper Shotgun. One of her fondest hopes is to one day play through the ending of Final Fantasy X without breaking down into a sobbing heap. She probably has more wolves in Valheim than you.
