Why do so many American suburbs look like an 8 year old it in Simcity made it?
They're supposed to be utilitarian not all artsy fartsy with grandeoise elaborate layouts. At least modern American cities like suburbs. DC is different though it's layout is a lot more complex.
The US is a new nation, its streets are planned out to be efficent for relativly modern usage. Euro cities grew more organicly over a long period of time to suit various needs and as such are more "random" looking
Australia is run by fucking retards.
Right now they are wanting to build fucking TRAMS everywhere, seriously wtf.
Forget a practical and future-proof metro, we get hipster trams.
Let the aliens glass us already.
