''Netrunner'' is a card game that depicts [[CyberPunk cyberspace combat]] between [[BigBrother a global]] [[MegaCorp mega-corporation]] (the Corp) and a hacker (the Runner). The Corp's goal is to [[TakeOverTheWorld complete their secret agendas]] before the Runner can hack in and spoil their secret plans for world domination. It isn't easy, though, as the Corp has strong defensive data forts protected by malevolent computer programs known as [[WilliamGibson ICE]] (once again short for [[FunWithAcronyms Intrusion Countermeasures Electronics]]). The Runner must use special programs of their own (called icebreakers) to break through and steal the hidden plans - to keep the Corp from taking over completely.

* BilingualBonus: The flavor text for Harbinger and Apocalypse are written in Baudot Code, a binary character system used by teleprinters. They translate to "I AM BECOME DEATH" and "THE DESTROYER OF WORLDS" respectively, recalling Oppenheimer's famous quote.

*** Adding to this, an AI Icebreaker called Hudson 1.0 has flavor text is: "I'm not here to play games. The game is over."

** The flavor text for the Wyrm icebreaker? "[[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire Fire and ichor...]]"
** The arrangement of the clones in the Nisei Mk. II card is strongly reminiscent of the Precogs from Film/MinorityReport

Added DiffLines:

* GreyAndGreyMorality: More evident in ''Netrunner'' than the original. The corps have dubious morality and manipulate public interests to fulfil their own goals, [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans but they have legitimately improved life for most people in the process]]. On the other hand, some of the runners include selfish criminals with no real grievance against the Corps, and are willing to do some dirty work to achieve their own ends as well.

* {{Cyberpunk}}: Very much steeped in the genre.

* {{Cyberpunk}}: Very much steeped in the genre. The original version, in fact, is actually tied into the Cyberpunk tabletop game, to the point one sourcebook (''Rache Bartmoss' Brainware Blowout'') had rules for using the game as a replacement for the clunky netrunning rules.
