Theme: Future sports / Brutal sports

Group Description

A common sci-fi theme, dating back at least to the 1975 movie Rollerball, is that of futuristic gladiator games as a panem et circenses for the masses of a dystopian future. According to video games, the most common sport of the future is a bloody variation on rugby or American football, played by heavily-armoured, genetically-manipulated athletes. The genre-defining classic is considered to be the Bitmap Brothers' Speedball, though it was neither the first nor the last.
