I've been really getting into the Cyberpunk genre, and all things related to it. What are some great cyberpunk games I should check out?

Bloodnet
Hell: A Cyberpunk Thriller

They're not very good, but they're HEAVY on the cyberpunk stuff that was in Neuromancer (borderline theft at points). They're both heavy on the concepts and text

Forgot to mention, every other cyberpunk game is CANDY ASS compared to these games. Deus Ex in comparison, is more like a hollywood action thriller like a Bourne movie, not really cyberpunk except as an aesthetic

the overall experience is dragged down by broken handling and collision detection, but Quarantine is still an extremely fun and comfy game. I recommend giving it a try.

First, in Deus Ex you can skip Invisible War, and remember that Aquanox includes Archimedean Dynasty.

In addition to that:
Final Fantasy VII
Snatcher
Snatcher SD
Shadowrun (SNES)
Shadowrun (Genesis - both versions are entirely different games)
Syndicate
Syndicate Wars
X-Com: Apocalypse (it's cyberpunk unlike earlier installments)
ESWAT: City Under Siege
Robocop vs Terminator (Genesis)
Robocop (ZX Spectrum)
Sin (PC FPS)
Slave Zero
Tex Murphy (series)
Longest Journey/Dreamfall (series)

As for modern, non-retro games:
Satellite Reign (basically a modern reboot of Syndicate)
Frozen Synapse
Project Snowblind
Shadowrun Dragonfall
Shadowrun Hong Kong
Invisible Inc
Hacknet
Metal Gear Solid 2, 4, Revengeance
EYE: Divine Cybermancy
Hard Reset
Quadrilateral Cowboy
NeoTokyo
Transistor
MiniLaw: Ministry of Law (WARNING: Early Access, but already pretty good)
Tacoma (WARNING: Very good 'walking simulator' that is almost entirely narrative driven)
SUPERHOT
CrossCode
HackMud
