Personally, I would say Fuchi, because I view it as very iconic for Shadowrun. Saeder-Krupp's too in-the-background, and Aztechnology is too idiosyncratic to be the big cyberpunk baddie. A superhuge Japanese multinational was the perfect cyberpunk villain, and now it's gone.

Novatech, I always liked how it came about, and it's style. I also have a thing for underdogs. Yamatetsu going under really suprised me.

I know Fuchi went under when did the others? SR4?

CATCo died when Lucien's plane crashed because of an EMP blast.

None. Fuchi was awesome, but its death was great as well. The others, well, I don't consider them defunct.

What about Cross?

In case it was vague, I don't consider them defunct because I don't accept the validity of System Crash and the SR4 material.

So it's a SR4 thing then? Thought I'd missed Corp war 2.0, I gotta go with Kage on this one.

I don't think Yamatetsu can be classified as "defunct" - they changed their name to Evo but it's still the same corporation.

well my current Character really wants to see Cross come back. He's a company man working for what remains of the Seripham so he hopes to ride the recovery to a cushy job after he's done. Personally I'd like to see Fuchi back, but their death was just so cool and cataclysmic I'm not sure I'd be willing to take the tradeoff. Besides we still have Renraku as a the faceless monolithic Japanacorp.

For me, the 80s were all about midwestern auto workers being helplessly crushed by monolithic Japanese corporations which had more tasteful executives than their puny Western counterparts.

Therefore, Fuchi is key.
