With the Night City Wire coming soon (and the unfortunate delay of the game to September), a question popped into my head. How popular was the originial Cyberpunk tabletop game? From what I read in some forums and other websites, Cyberpunk supposedly help to create the cyberpunk sub-genre.
Although cyberpunk existed before the tabletop, it was spread out over multiple books and other media that just had similar themes and elements. Cyberpunk is what took those things and combined them all together into one setting, creating what we now view as cyberpunk (similar to how the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings created the modern perception of high fantasy). This would mean that any cyberpunk elements in future media originated from Cyberpunk in some ways.
However, I personally never heard about the tabletop until I looked into the game, a sentiment that I seem to share with a lot of other people. It also never seemed to reach the popularity and long-lasting appeal that D&D reached. To be fair though, this could just be because I did not pay a lot of attention to the tabletop community until when I got into D&D recently (which occurred years after I learned about the game).
The only consistent thing I can find is that the 3rd edition or V3.0 was considerred the worst version of Cyberpunk because of its low production (since R. Talsorian Games was nearing bankruptcy at the time) to the point where once Cyberpunk 2077 and Red were announced, V3.0 was declared noncanon.
To reiterate, how popular was Cyberpunk and if possible, can anyone compare its popularity to D&D's popularity?
