Hack #3

In the last couple of lectures we were talking about the cold war, how the government tried to make atom bombs seem almost not that bad when people were worrying about the effects of them. I used to have a favorite game franchise that I always played which was the Fallout series. The game always took place after the world was bombed by atomic bombs and mutated creatures and radioactivity roamed the land. When explaining how to play the game, or looking through the main menus, there still maintains that dark irony of making light of something dangerous. When scrolling through different weapons of destruction there is a happy face man usually portraying the use of these weapons. This parallels to how America tried to make light of the atom bombs around the cold war.
