Although I love the idea of simplicity and style in the 1950's, it doesn't make up for the racial segregation and constant sexist laws that came with the time. I'd hate to be a 50's housewife, no voice or opinion in anything. The blacks and the jews didn't have it much better either, I'm not sure about hispanics in the area but I don't think they were too welcome.

 

I've played L.A Noir, I know how it is.

And then the people from 2060 are going to wonder what life was like in the 00s!
 
TERRIBLE!

They'll have a better idea.  Everything we post will be there for them to see.

"She's attractive. 8/10."

 

"I lasted 30 seconds! 20 seconds longer than before!"

 

Yes, that'll go far.

I'm probably most fascinated with the 1950's, would have been a great time to be born. The TV shows, threat of nuclear war and communism, the politics, the music. Then growing up during the 60's, 70's. If a time machine is ever created, the 50's is the first place i'll be going.

Well I checked his profile, and it says he's male. I'd say he's white. 

 

I meant straight, lmao.

I'm not white

 

In all honesty I don't think I would have enjoyed the 50s. It seemed very repressive. There was the whole Communist scare and propaganda...movies, books, basically all entertainment was censored to a degree(here in the states). I'm almost willing to bet the government was even sneakier than people like to perceive the current government to be.

Racial segregation was enforced, and hate organizations like the KKK were actively lynching people...with the respect of the towns people.

It may have been a simpler time, but then again every previous decade was simpler then it's predecessor.

 

 

I've also thought about this as well.

When watching old TV programs from the era, and even playing games like LA Noire I don't think I would've fit in very well either.

 

Can you imagine telling someone back then how the world would be like 50 years later?

They would probably think you were a lunatic.

 

I've also imagined going back to the 80s.

 

I ask my parents all the time how the 80s were like. They always tell me it was the best time of their lives .__.

The 80s were meh. I remember that we used to think the 80s suck while we were living them.

We would dream about being in the 60s.

I enjoyed much more the 90s.

Don't forget the vast, well categorized, pin-point searchable video catalogues that exist and dont really need to be shared, since we all already know where to find such resources.

On topic: I find the fifties fascinating, or at least the modern day representation of it. My image of the decade is no doubt skewed by video games and old television shows, but I've always like the way things worked. Nothing was overly complicated and everything we're shown these days depict it as a time of growth. Basically, it was everything these days isn't.

The Beatles were considered to have long hair. Does that give you an idea?
Long hair was the same as having a limp wrist, in many peoples expressed feelings.

Look at the movies from the era... the best all around...
1950 All About Eve
1950 Sunset Boulevard
1951 An American in Paris
1952 Singin' in the Rain
1952 The African Queen
1952 High Noon
1953 From Here to Eternity
1953 Shane
1954 The Caine Mutiny
1954 On the Waterfront
1954 Rear Window
1954 A Star is Born
1955 Marty
1955 Rebel Without a Cause
1956 The Searchers
1957 The Bridge on the River Kwai
1957 Paths of Glory
1957 12 Angry Men
1958 Separate Tables
1958 Vertigo
1958 Witness for the Prosecution
1959 North by Northwest
1960 The Apartment
1960 Psycho
1960 Wild River
1962 The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

Is there another Era with so many?

Damn, so if having a bowl cut is considered limp-wristed, then by having Leo-esque hair, you're going full retard.

How scary.

The Beatles didn’t have ‘bowl’ hair cuts. Take a look at the ears and back of the neck.

Ah, that's right. Larry Fine had the bowl cut. Or was it Moe? I know for a fact it wasn't Curly.

The ideology at the time was "clean cut all American man" and anything that fell outside that realm wasn't understood or tolerated.  A man with long hair was labeled as a reefer smoker, criminal, up to no good, etc. I even brought up the subject to some of my family members that lived in that time and they all said the same thing. I asked them what about Jesus, didn't he have long hair? Their reply was "they didn't have barbers in those days"... hahahahaha

A long haired socialist hippy who healed the sick and fed the poor. Right?

The automotive landscape had alot more variety and was alot more pretty in general. This is early 60's, but mostly 50s cars in the photo.

Compare the 50s America to the 50s Korea.

America would've seemed like heaven to the Koreans.

This link is what pretty much made me start this thread. Also that picture Illousion posted is just beautiful. 

 

I think there needs to be more games set in the 40s - early 60s. Just to satisfy my curiosity a little  :lol:

I don't think I'm alone when I find this topic utterly fascinating. Sometimes I hear people speak about the city I live in and compare it to days gone by. The seventies, the eighties. That's why they're coming from the world over to set their movies in some dumpy abyss on the outskirts of Adelaide to attempt to replicate it. It's not something I feel when I walk down the street but it baffles me how the world was and how we've evolved. Keep posting the videos people, I'm loving 'em.
