Post-Apocalypse & Vehicles

Last night I went with some friends to the movies and watched the latest Mad Max. Unsurprisingly none of my friends were aware that Mad Max was actually a series, and that Fury Road was basically a fourth installment(though supposedly it's not necessarily a sequel but something more of a spin-off with the same character).

I'm not sure if I mentioned it before, but I have a crazed obsessive love of post-apocalypse. Bonus if it comes with some hard-core music, and junker cars made all armored and armed with scraps and stuff. Mad Max obviously fits that criteria quite well.

What's interesting is how a story or background is so barely touched upon. All you know is that some sort of nuclear war happened, and people are in crazy tribes, and it's just pretty damn violent. Some folk complain that there's not enough story(though I believe they're planning on making a few more movies and book licenses are being planned). However the way the story precedes even with a lack of back story is great(you still get the general idea).

Rage the video game was decent, but the fact it had such a linear storyline made it pretty dull and lacking any replay value.

Fallout doesn't have cars, but it has one hell of a story and so much replay value.

"Fallout doesn't have cars"

You, my friend, have never played Fallout 2. (Not to mention all of the crashed/abandoned cars lying around in 3 and NV.)

RE: Post-Apocalypse & Vehicles

In general it doesnt have vehicles. The general plot stuff basically revolves around "nuclear vehicles got emp-ed/no longer functional. I understand fallout 2 had car but compared to whats available on fallout universe, vehicles are an extreme rarity. Other than the infrequent vertibird, which supposeldy uses petrol and thus not exactly commonly available.
