I have to admit, it's probably because that's where I "found" Shadowrun, but I still love the 2050s. The Renraku Arcology's still a thing and Technomancers aren't. Deckers still use decks and Chicago's still in one piece, etc etc. Oh, and Big D is still alive and everyone's favorite spellwurm.
My current homebrew campaign is basically 2050s-era SR, but with modified and updated bits. For example, while Deckers still use decks, wifi is definitely a thing. You can't hack cyberware, and you still gotta be jacked into the deck to actually, you know, deck, but your deck can access the 'trix wirelessly, as long as it's got a signal - Or more importantly, can access your target corp's internal wifi, once he's within range.
Anyone else still living in the past, or are we all 2070s and it's a shiny new world out there?
