Science Fiction, known today as Sci-Fi or SF, typically deals with visionary and futuristic concepts.
If you’re reading or watching something that deals with high-tech and how it affects our lives, adventures set in space or in a parallel universe, topics of time travel or a new science, or even space aliens or superhuman abilities, then it most likely belongs to the Sci-Fi genre.
Sci-Fi in Pop Culture
Sci-Fi content comes in multiple forms.
It’s almost impossible to come across someone who isn’t interested in Star Wars, Star Trek, or Doctor Who. These franchises, with their many offshoots and different installments, have spawned fans all over the world.
Aside from animated and live action movies/series, there are also books. Though recently, these have taken a bit of a backseat due to the influx of streaming services. Still, you’ll probably find your peers reading current greats like Project Hail Mary and Klara and the Sun.
There are some who opt to stick to the classics, with history-defining works like 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, or contemporary ‘banned’ books, such as 1984 and Fahrenheit 451.
Sci-Fi is present in video games, too. Popular titles include: Doom (1993), Halo 2, Deus Ex, and the Metroid series.
Great science fiction should invoke the imaginative side of the reader. At the same time, it should introduce to them a concept that, (given a little nudge) can be a reality. All while following lines of logic based on the creator’s world.
Cutting Edge Sci-Fi Fonts
Nothing is as immersive as a work that is both fantastic and adheres to a sense of realism. That’s the reason why Star Wars, 1984, Dune, and The Hunger Games still continue to dominate imaginations to this day.
