When growing up, did you have a Super Nintendo or a Sega Genesis? It matters on this list, since Shadowrun was a pretty different game on both consoles.

On the Genesis version, it was more of an action-RPG, kind of similar to what you might find today (it was ahead of its time). But on the SNES, it was more of a traditional RPG, with an emphasis on story and dialogue.

The cyber-punk feel set it ahead of the pack, though, as did gaining karma and entering into cyberspace. It was a unique little game and a predecessor of what was to come in the modern age. (Oh, and let’s please not discuss the first-person shooter that it later became for the 360. That game was God-awful!)
