More recently, there have been films such as Apollo 13 (1995) and Red Planet (2000). The settings of this future tend to be post-industrial dystopias, but are normally marked by extraordinary cultural ferment, and the use of technology in ways never anticipated by its creators ("the street finds its own uses for things"). The Victorians were the first people to experience that, and I think it made them crazy in new ways.

This is how cyberpunk becomes relevant again. On peut citer le fait que William Gibson présida lui-même l'adaptation d'un de ses romans avec le jeu de rôle Neuromancer produit en 1988 par Interplay. As a consequence science-fiction readers feel at the end of the story that though humanity may die out what is definingly human, curiosity, will continue. It certainly has Gadget and Adventure stories within the genre as well, numerous in fact, but Cyberpunk is a genre that focuses heavily on the impact of technology on society itself, possibly more than any other genre of sci-fi.

I wouldn't consider apocalyptic or post-apocalyptic fiction a subgenre of cyberpunk. In this future world, remotely piloted “gods” are used in place of advertisements: Look around. Cyberpunk did not spring full-grown from Gibson's forehead, of course. Many modern militaries have embraced bullpup guns as the ideal weapons for doing battle within the crowded streets and buildings of cities — scenes that could just as easily be ripped from Hollywood’s more feverish dystopian nightmares.

In Science Fiction: The Future (1971), Dick Allen describes the genre as "a form of literature that argues through its intuitive force that the individual can shape and change and influence and triumph; that [human beings] can eliminate both war and poverty; that miracles are possible; that love, if given a chance, can become the main driving force of human relationships" (p. 3).
