- Specific culture? Unless you're talking about the natives, wha…
I'm not the onley one
Natives never shared a a culture or even a stinking nation. They were just a bunch of tribes.
You... do know what culture is, right? I myself don't know the textbook definition but yes, they had a culture of their own, one quite unique to that of any European tribe.
Culture is pretty much a set of ideals that people identify with and relate to.
Even a small family can have a microculture, which is a set of ideals and aspirations set within the framework of a larger underlying culture. Your parents can expect you to get a job, have children, but they probably also ask you to be a patriot, believe in a certain god... well, you get the point. The thing is that it may differ from other families which have their own microculture.
The debate regarding the term "specific culture" is in itself a pleonasm, given the previous example. All cultures are specific, even when syncretic, as they eventually develop their individual structure.
The colonists in America developed their culture the moment they stepped off the boat. While their fellow British ethnics aspired on getting more tea, the colonists aspired not to get killed by Indians, wild turkeys or diseases.
That's a whole different culture right there.
What the hell are you on about? Of course we had culture. Everybody has fuckin culture.
We never had a
culture, all throughout USA history we adopted and modified every other world culture, becoming a mixing pot.
Yes, and that became OUR culture.
Of course America has/had a specific culture. We were, and mostly still are, English-speaking Christians from Europe. There core American ethnic and religious identity has always been British and Protestant, and more generally European and Christian.
The "melting pot" idea is a half-truth, in that during the 19th and 20th centuries, millions of immigrants assimilated to American folkways. But most of these immigrants were European and Christian, and they assimilated to WASP cultural norms.
Thats still culture fuckwit. Thats what made America great.
I never said we didn't have culture, I said we've never had a specific culture!
Oh yeah, you did... good! lol

Fallout Screenshot Comp
New Vegas gets past all that, the NCR and Gun Runners are producing new things, including new ammunition, food, medicine, guns, clothes and armor.
Fallout 3 is Fallout 3. Bethesda's first try at writing for Fallout. Concessions have to be made.
This is the Fallout universe, where radiation mutates creations and increases their size, turns people into ghouls who live forever (unless shot, etc), and have genetic alterting viruses.
Shit makes sense in its own universe. We don't know how long medicine would last in this universe.
Most of the food in FO3/FNV makes sense too. Dehydrated eggs, dried mashed potato flakes, canned beans, dry mac and cheese, etc. Only real stupid one is Salisbury steak.
Because the first Fallout only took place a couple generations after the War, and Fallout 3 was originally going to be the same thing. FNV doesn't have an excuse other than gameplay, though.
Also, F3 is
non canon, though bethesda owns the rights, and could make whatever they want canon.
Non canon, what!? You mean F3's story doesn't matter!?

Under a lot of circumstances I'd agree, but they actually gave a real citation at the bottom. Those numbers are 100% factual. It's weird seeing that coming from Fox, but there it is.
I'm a Republican and even
approve this message.

This will likely be a thing in the next 18 months, now that it's in the collective unconscious.

- I assure you, GoW is in no way canon to the actual Greek myths...
Hoes, Hoes Everywhere
Even so I think he's curious if there is a fight in the game.
But it does have heroes form Greek myths, which was what he was asking.
Especially since there was no way to actually kill a god. Not even other gods or titans could do it.
Don't worry ghostninjaguy. Kratos was NOT a myth, he was a real man, the games are an extremely (down to the smallest detail) accurate representation of his deeds, and he lived in real historic Greece. He existed in the tumultuous year of our emperor A.D. 2005.
I did a bit of digging a few years ago, it turns out Kratos was an actual myth
