"The genre of dystopia – the 'not good place'– has captured the imaginations of artists and audiences alike for centuries. But why do we bother with all this pessimism? Alex Gendler explains how dystopias act as cautionary tales – not about some particular government or technology, but the very idea that humanity can be molded into an ideal shape."

Tech Insider: 'Fallout 4' concept art

"The world of 'Fallout' is anachronistically stuck in the post-World War II era of American history. These images represent the retro-futuristic world of 2077, when the game begins."
