It is no secret Walter Jon Williams‘ Hardwired is one of my favourite Cyberpunk novels and I like the RPG sourcebook by R. Talsorian Games also. As far as I know, the author was part of the playtest of the original Cyberpunk 2013 game and he helped to expand his material for the campaign book.

I also recommend Transhuman Space (Steve Jackson Games) and Cthulhutech (Wildfire) setting-wise.

I only have the Transhuman Space core book, and in my in opinion it is a benchmark for thoughtful and carefully developed roleplaying settings. I never played it, but this is one of my ‚go to‘ books for near future and transhumanist ideas. Sorry, fanboys and -girls, but I don’t like Eclipse Phase (Posthuman Studios). I expected too much. In my opinion, David L. Pulver and SJG did much better than the Shadowrun authors and editors, but everybody likes GURPS.

Transhuman Space feels a bit like a ‚halfway credible extrapolation of our world‘. Cthulhutech is the opposite. This is a wild mash-up of Japanese mecha animation and Cthulhu themes. I especially like the Tagers stuff. These superhuman warriors are a magical symbiosis of mortals and aliens. These monsters fight the sinister Children of Chaos and their shapeshifting monsters (Dhohanoids). The cult seeks the return of the Old Ones …
If you like very imaginative scifi horror, I suggest you check this game line out, but I would avoid the clunky game system.
