DATAFORTRESS 2020 MEDIA LIST
While by no means a complete list of everything out there, this ever-growing list should give you more than enough sources of inspiration to have you and your players drooling over this game for some time to come.  If you have suggestions for the list or questions about my ratings, feel free to e-mail me at the link at the bottom of the page.  Although just to head off the hate mail I know I am gonna get, The Matrix was nothing but a glorified Tron remake that came no where near to being as cool, and Mamouro Oshii is the most balls achingly dull director on the planet.
