Better SF than the overused NYC. I'm really tired of seeing NYC in every movie, video game, cartoon, etc.

Need more Chicago.

Honestly, Chicago or Detroit could either one be a solid setting for a gritty, violent crime/combat game - especially post economic/governmental collapse sort of games. They'd both be very believable settings.

Detroit would work, it already collapsed.

Exactly. And Chicago is trying to go that direction - tons of violence and discontent, crime rates high enough that presidents have to talk about it, public mistrust of law enforcement and people who are supposed to protect them (and honestly, there has been a crapton of dirty cops and stuff, so that mistrust is well deserved)...

Still waiting for Detroit to go from the Automobile City to the Cybernetic City. Aka Deus Ex.

Well, they're supposed to unveil that Robocop statue next year, so they're headed the right direction... heh

I lived there from 2004 to I think 2012. It was pretty great back then. There was a lot of stuff that was annoying like the crappy public transit and hobos pooping everywhere, but at least rent was manageable and there were tons of fun bars and restaurants. Also the weather is great if you don't like cold or hot weather.

I don't know why anyone is still living there, rent is insane there now, ALL the cool restaurants/bars closed and got replaces by artisanal fart gin yoga clubs, public transit is still a complete joke, and there's even more homeless people. So you're paying like 4 times more than 5 years ago to put up with worse problems. Also I fully expect the tech and real estate bubble will pop there at some point, probably when Trumptax raises taxes on blue states.


I thought public transit in SF Is really good? What sucks about it?


Oh, hey. Sorry I didn't respond earlier.

It's just really bad when you consider how expensive it is to live there, you'd think the city could afford better, but nope.

- Muni Metro is the light rail system and it's just a joke. The main problem is that they have 6 different lines combine and run down a single tunnel into downtown. They constantly create a traffic jam where you inch forward or stop and start constantly, and if one train in the tunnel breaks down the entire system breaks down. I used to live near downtown and on a good day it took me a 10 minute ride to work, most days it would be more like 30, and sometimes it would take me 90 minutes because the entire system melted down.

- the buses are ok but they take forever to get anywhere and are always super crowded. Very unpleasant to use.

- BART is like a subway train that provides commuter rail service to the suburbs. It's much more reliable than Muni but the trains are disgusting and dirty, they're always crowded because they keep cutting back on service (even in the middle of the biggest economic boom in history), and the system is starting to fall apart so delays and breakdowns keep increasing.

Overall it's just a joke and a pain in the ass to use, but having a car is even worse in most of SF because there's zero parking. I used to live in Chicago and the public transit wasn't perfect either but it was way better, trains were way more reliable and the buses would actually hustle and were very reliable. A small wealthy liberal city like SF should really be able to do better at getting people to work, but all the people with money and power just shower attention on tech companies that have abandoned public transit and use private buses.

Did someone touch you while walking on Castro?

Are you nuts? Who in their right mind would walk in a cess pool like that?
