they are trying to give the game a "real" universe feel. and not just a cartoony video game feel. If this was a real world, every container would not be full of stuff and useful stuff at that. Some would be empty, some full, some may contain useful stuff, some not. etc etc.

I am not Passionate on the container topic, but the fact they are going for a "Real World Feel" is going to make this game something extra special. Let them build their game its one of the best I have seen in a VERY long time.

You cant cherry pick something in a vacuum, you have to look at the total picture.
