    new vegas implies this to be.... canon (depending on what your opinion about gameplay and story segregation)

    but what your opinion guys? there is lot way to preserve food; irradiation, vacuum seal, etc..
    do you think this is possible at all?

    Its just a game. But considering the huge help GMOS help modern food to ''never'' expire it wouldnt suprise me if Fallouts pre-war ultra-capitalistic society without any ethical borders would just stuff all kind of GMOs into its food to make it last longer.

    It's purely for gameplay convenience. Nothing else.

    Well, weren't there food in Fallout 1/2 that was pretty much pre-war food that was still edible?

    I forget exactly, but I think you could just find pre war stuff like that. If you try and use it, it would just say "you have no idea what instant spaghetti is" or something

    I'm currently playing Old World Blues, and it bothers me to no end how the fridge in the Sink, which is obviously untouched by the bombs and even the fridge's squeaky clean, contain irradiated food and other stuff. Hell, iirc even food found across the rooms in Sierra Madre Casino also were radiated.

    Pre war food is mention by NPCs in fo3 a lot. Except for the folks in andale. They don't seem to know about because cannibals. Anyway if fo3 & fo4 are canon then Yes. But I don't consider them canon. So no.

    To be fair, its 50s futurism. I'm sure people in the 1950s would figure its a cool idea.

    My personal theory is that its Bio-Med Gel. The stuff used to preserve the brains of the Think Tank and Robobrains.
    I don't get how that is convinient for gameplay?, Surely they could easily replace all pre-war food with post-war food.

    They did and brought too much (the infamous iguana-on-stick) but there are pre-war food lying around too. Because reasons.

    That is something that do not bother me, to be honest.
    They can make robots with advanced behavioural programming (and I guess even real AI in Bethesda's games), and have other way more advanced technology than we have today. It is not far-fetched they managed to conceive some technique/chemical/packaging way of making packed and tinned food be preserved indefinitely.
    What bothers me is that in a place where people seem to mainly eat pre-war food and after 200 years of this continuing and not new packaged food being made, there is still so much of it around.
