The computer game scene really sucked back then.
OK, I admit, things were quite good back then, if you were a white male.
If you were female, things were maybe slightly better than they used to be, but most of the democratic nations in the world were still debating about whether or not to allow you to vote.
Pollution wasn't as bad, absolutely. And things were simpler without social media, in a time where we were not immediately informed about all of the horrible things going on in the world.
In 1919, the "Great War" was ending, and people were about to start doing the Charleston dance, and there was a certain amount of liberalism and partying during what is called the "roaring 20s"...before the great economic depression, and the buildup to WWII. Things were pretty bad then, of course.
And, for a time, you were not legally allowed to drink alcohol. That definitely sucked.
