I had a step-Grandmother (before she passed) and she was full Lebanese and Arabic descent. She came over to the U.S. before the 50s. So yes, there were Middle Eastern immigrants before the Nuclear Saber rattling Era. My family is pretty diverse and I'm definitely am glad to have grown up around multiple ethnic groups. Anyways, I always liked the settings in FO1/2, but I always wondered what was actually happening in other desolate areas, even ones still in the U.S. Like say, what would NE Minnesota be like? Or, how have people fared in other countries (any of them)? Specifically regarding Arab-American populations in the U.S. - and since I find ancestry and demographics interesting, According to this information "the first major wave of Arab immigration in the late 19th century, the majority of Arab immigrants have settled in or near large cities." I'm one of those people though that don't really care if X game doesn't represent enough Y of culture. I just want to play the game (if its at all decent). Oh, I'm also small part native too, and I raaaarely see even games where you play as a full Native or see much (Wasteland 2 did alright with that).
