I've been playing Bully lately on my laptop. It has never occurred to me what time period it's set it. I always thought it was set in 2005...the year when it first came out, and that the Greasers were weirdos since they dressed as if it were the 50s. 

 

But then I thought about it some more, and someone suggested the 1970s-1980s.

Based on the way the Townies dress and also the cars...I'm thinking early 80s or late 70s. What do you guys think?

The 'setting' part of that highly suggests late 90s to early 00s.

Hmm...I'm still thinking 80s. But perhaps late mid-late 80s now.

Anyway thanks for the reply.

I'd say that it's the same as San Andreas. Early 90s, only we don't know the exact year when it comes to Bully. But the atmosphere, clothing and and technology all fit.

My two cents is it's the 90s also.

I don't know why but 1995 is sticking in my head for some reason!

So 90s then?

I was thinking late 80s because of the greasers and the way Zoey is dressed. As well as the arcade machines and the cars that drive around town.

One of the arcade games in beach hideout had 'copyright 2005' so it was probably the present time. And for cars and vibe,well,police in North Yankton in 2004 was using those old cars,and Blaine county also had older cars than Los Santos,both police and civilian cars. I guessits just how Rockstar sees American Countryside,outside big cities,much more backward. I don't think its like that in real life,just how Housers sees those places.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's set around the time it was released, too, there's a poster in the boy's dorm that had the year 2007 listed. I guess it just has to do with the vibe they want set with these places, and they want them to seem less advanced than cities and pretty much isolated from the rest of the country culture-wise. GTA V did it for North Yankton/Blaine County, and the film Napoleon Dynamite kinda did that as well, it seemed like it was the 80s in the town, but it was set in 2004.

No need to be. It basically means that Rockstar thinks that people in small towns in 2014 still lives like it is 1994.

They're not wrong at all, though.

This is pretty much true. My brother lives in a small town on the east coast of Virginia and it's a bit silly. You got modern technology and all like computers and phones, but most of the cars were from the 80s/90s and the same could be said about their fashion sense.
