Non Specific Action have a look at which cities would make good settings for the excellent Fallout series.
London would just be amazing...I would love to scale Big Ben or explore the unrderground tube.
That would be cool, a lot of water there too. That's why I always thought St. Louis would be great, there's the arch to explore, the Mississippi river could be a great way to add DLC to the game too. Go north for snow, south for swamp.
I still think Texas would make a great setting. Cassidy had some interesting throwaway lines in Fallout 2 about radioactive cyclones. If it has to be based on a single city, I think Denver sounds awesome.. fighting against or supporting a Legion that has spread itself too thin to actively control the scraps of the city.. http://fallout.wikia.com/wi... As for non-US locations, I'd like to see something in China before anything else on this list.
Sydney could be a good one, because you could take a pretty different direction with it. It could be that Australia was not bombed at all, thus leading to much more populous areas, like Sydney, which are filled with relatively unscathed citizens holding onto the last bastion of civilization as we knew it. It also allows for intriguing new concepts, like border control (mutants/ghouls trying to get in all the time), refugee camps, political strife and more. Plus, you'd have very varied environments in Oz, with some of the already dangerous indigenous life mutating into even more deadly variants (giant crocs/snakes/spiders, packs of wild dogs). The game could be like a cross between Deus Ex and Fallout, with some greater emphasis on NPC interaction. It means you might not be able to be such an absolutely reckless opportunist like you can be in Fallout 3/NV or other Bethesda games, because the rule of law still applies.
Gotta include China at some point, right?
Seeing as how Fallout is basically a satirical look at American life, I am not sure taking it over seas is the best idea. I am NOT saying it shouldn't, but slightly concerned it will lose something if it does. That said, I vote for none of those places. Too well known. I would prefer a more obscure place.
Yeah agree completely, without the Americana world of tomorrow vibe, fallout would lose a lot its charm and atmosphere.
Sometimes, I don't really like that 50's America vibe. I would like to see it as it happening in our universe. Not saying the game's story is bad, it's great.
