    Texas is a good bet as no one will acknowledge BOS exists.

    Washington State, for the sole bias that I'm from there. While the game would take place there, the Overgrowth Wasteland would consist of Washington and Oregon. The small islands along the Canadian border (Orcas Island, specifically) are also apart of the territory. Because of how the west and east coasts are portrayed, I've always thought that there are more natural resources the farther west you traveled, so more people would be drawn toward that direction. But what about a place with too much resources? This fanfic plays off the idea that people would become insane with greed with this over abundance. It also goes against the idea of "if only the environment was healthy again, civilization can rebuild." This post nuclear rainforest (cafe) would attract, and otherwise create, all manner of raiders by the hundreds. The player would be known as The Raider. The story would be dark and brutal, a complete contrast to the beautiful surrounding. It can't be too dark because that would annoy the player or not as dark as what we've already seen in Fallout. Also, the jungle and state setting are an excuse to add giant spiders, new bug monsters, and new fruit, vegetables and herbs to the series and "grunge" rock and death metal into the game via the Wild Wasteland Trait.

    I concur on the Pacific Northwest. Its a beautiful area of America and doing a combination of Seattle and Vancouver would make some interesting background lore with regards to the Canadian annexation, of which places like that would have been the front line.

    Assuming by some miracle the game will be good then I hope Colorado in the mountains.

    As someone from the Pacific Northwest I would love to see a Fallout game based here. There is all kinds of great places you can have as locations such as Seattle, The San Juan Islands, The Lewis-McCord Airforce Base, The Handford Nuclear Dump Site, The Olympic Mountains, Mount Rainer.

    There would also be a lot of interesting aesthetics you can do with the Pacific Northwest. The Pacific Northwest was home to the Grunge and Underground Indie movements and since the 80's the Pacific Northwest youths always had a bit of an anarchistic mindset with their politics and outlook on authority.

    There is a lot of interesting stuff you can do with the politics of the region too. The West side of the mountains view themselves as more "cultured", "progressive" and "educated" while the East side of the mountains view themselves more "traditional", "conservative" and "hard-working". The two side constantly butt heads during election season and the East side dreams of one day forming their own state and freeing themselves of the tyranny of Seattle and the West side.

    There is a lot of stuff you can do with the Pacific Northwest. In the right hands, you have the makings of a interesting Fallout game.

    The Forge, or Furnace, is what I imagine Mount Rainer would be. It would've exploded during the Great War, and since it's one of the largest volcanos in the world, molten lava will still pour out from this giant pit in the earth. I now realize this is a stretch, but this place is were the region gets it's metal from; which would scratch off metal as one more resource the Overgrowth is rich in. Gameplay wise, this generic "hard area" is virtually impossible to explore for long. The fumes on the outskirts are enough to kill, and only with Power Armor can you walk a few miles here before being cooked alive. This place is ran by robots both remotely controlled and self aware. One of the many bots, a sentry bot named Foreman #7, is one of the Companions you can recruit one way or another.

    Interesting to see so many of us are from the PNW. A fallout game set in the region could be cool, but I’m personally not a fan of a “green” wasteland being in a fallout game. I like to think that pretty much the entire world has become some kind of desert with varying degrees of hospitable-ness (hospitability?). I also imagine that areas with high rainfall were hit particularly bad once the “black rain” started falling a few weeks/months after the war. It seems to me that a place like Washington would get rained on more then Arizona, for example, killing even more plant and animal life comparatively.
