EDIT: Whoops, wrong subforum. This is my first post btw. This thread has to do with the aging & deterioration of things, as well as the dwindling of pre-war resources. This only refers to the Bethesda games. Personally, as you most likely do also, I strongly prefer the Interplay games. I don't get it how in the Bethesda games pre-war food is so common and cars still color to them after two centuries of sitting in the wasteland. Also, how the hell do they still have pre-war cigarettes? It has been fricking two centuries!!! A lot of the buildings and such don't look like they're two centuries old and have been sitting in the middle of a post-nuclear wasteland. After two centuries, how is there still supplies sitting in places like supermarkets and other well-scavenged and well-travelled areas? This also relates to Fallout 4. I saw some gameplay, and banners in Concord from 200 YEARS AGO are still hanging, LET ALONE AFTER A GLOBAL NUCLEAR EXCHANGE. And still, a lot of the stuff looks like it is less than 200 years old and hasn't been in a wasteland for that long, too. But I guess it is "just a video game". Just had to get this off my chest.
