Dupont Circle is a historic district in D.C., and its fountain is the subject of nearly every tourist photo taken of the area. A strange decision - Fallout 3's Dupont Circle Fountain is similar in structure, but the statues are all different. Why the sitting pose, why the basins? Where is this inspiration coming from? Maybe there's a hidden meaning, or maybe the designer didn't think that anyone would take a screen of it and compare it to the real thing, and then actually care that they're different.
