Top 5 Cities for the Fallout series
So it seems that the next Fallout game may very well be on the cards and we’re all very excited about that because let’s be honest; the Fallout series is great.
Inspired by this I have taken the liberty of producing an article that looks at five top cities that would be awesome to see in the Fallout series. The games are in no particular order so you can choose which would be your favourite.
Ah what better way to celebrate the Olympic year than see our beloved capital destroyed because of nuclear war? Seriously though let’s think about what the city has to offer; an extensive underground system, above ground rail systems, museums aplenty, tourist attractions aplenty and heaps of backstreet houses and dodgy warehouses in which you can roam. Quests could involve clearing the underground system so it can be used, scale Big Ben or the London Eye or even go to Heathrow to salvage some plane components.
Japan’s neon city is a sight to behold in itself so imagine what the guys at Bethesda could do with it with their creative hands and minds. A crumbling cityscape of this size would be absolutely stunning to see during the day and night whilst the streets would be packed full of danger with gangs roaming through the day and night and enforcing their laws on the survivors. The technology that could be used and customised because of Japan’s superior advance would be amazing to mess around with.
Ok so many people don’t have too much love for the French but their capital city would make a pretty good location for a post-apocalyptic RPG. There’s plenty of history influencing the streets of France and some of the tourist attractions there would be amazing places to house some of the missions throughout. What’s more, the WW1/2 influences could be included by collecting old weaponry or vehicles in order to quash any rival gangs or destroy obstacles.
We may be stepping into Metro territory here but the world of Fallout could easily fit into a similar mould of Metro by steeping its campaign in history and lore such as Lenin and Stalin whilst the communist influences would be a must. In a similar vein to Paris, the World War 2 side of things would also help the game with inclusion of weapons and armour from the period. But who could ever question that a Fallout game set deep in the heart of winter wouldn’t be fun?
Australia is a perfect setting for the Fallout series as the sheer number of wild animals there that would inevitably get mutated would be enough to make the hardiest of hunters squeal. Exploring the city and seeing things like the opera house would be a joy in itself or having to go explore rickety shacks in the Australian outback would be both intriguing and rewarding at the same time. Ok, Australia may not be steeped in history but a dynamic weather system would surely make the game a bloody spectacle to the eye.
So there you have it, our top 5 cities which we would like to see immortalised the good old fashioned Bethesda way. Have we missed one though? Or do you disagree with our choices? Let us know in the comment section below.
Sorry, but somehow I think you've missed the fact that the Fallout series of games is set solely within America. The entire premise revolves around the fictional US - Chinese nuclear war that devastated the continental US. I suppose it would be possible to set a Fallout game within China to see things from their point of view, but that's about as likely to happen as the settings you've proposed.
