As you can see, there is a great variety of dystopian worlds
and stories in our popular culture, from books to games.
A lot of them focus on:
- oppression (religion, government, capitalism)
- (self-)destruction of humanity (nuclear, scientific, alien invasion)
- technology run amok (robot overlords, life is a simulation)
- pandemic catastrophe (incurable diseases, experimentation)
- wasteland post-apocalypse (survivalist, scarcity of resources)
