That must just be the flaws of the games then, because they never show functional tech like this actually working, in-game except for Hoover Dam and HELIOS One. Everything else that works, does so magically even though it makes no sense for them to actually work. I mean, go to Fallout3 and look at how many computer terminals function without any believable source of electricity, or how many buildings have lights on inside, but there's no believable places the power could come from. The power lines (you can see many fallen over) don't look like they'd actually function, and indeed when you see the sheer state of disrepair the roads are in, you're going to feed me the bull that 200+ year old power line poles are still standing? lol. those'd be rotted up into nothing by then, left out in the elements. IRL, power outages happen yearly and that's WITH constant maintenance. They want me to believe that they'd survive for 200+ years with near-zero maintenance?
