@artelinarose: No more psudo-intellectual made up abreviations, please. Just say it normally. Or else it will end up like thumblr crap(ie. cis, which is just crazy talk for 'Biological') This shit has to stop.
you spend a lot of time commenting about how you hate everything to do with political correctness.
A Fallout game taking place in the ruins of a major American city? Stop the presses, this is front-page news right here!
To be fair, Las Vegas is not really a major American city.
From a cultural point of view it is.
It's really not though. Hell, San Fransisco (which was in Fallout 2 I think?) only has 500k people (technically, though the bay area far outstrips the LV metro area), but it has history. Las Vegas's claim to fame is a bunch of casinos and it's in the desert. In the context of Fallout it absolutely made sense that LV was as big as it was but in real life? nah.
I mean, I loved New Vegas and all but Las Vegas was definitely the lesser of the main cities (LA, SF, Washington D.C. and now apparently boston).
