Actually this game is set 200 years after nuclear bombs leveled civilization.
Chernobyl didn't have a nuclear blast to damage most of the buildings. As far as I know it was a radiation leak but I could be wrong, I'm far from an expert on the subject. Kinda going way off topic with this tho.
I understand you were talking about all games and not just this one, but this is the only new game I've played in some time so I can't really comment on any others. I think the dull colors are there for atmospheric reasons. It's supposed to feel desolate, hopeless and dull.
