Your favourite fictional City.

Whilst going through the Lord of the Rings trilogy once again I was reminded just how much I love the city of Minas Tirith as a fictional place, the one place I would wish to see as a reality.

For those of you who don't know, Minas Tirith is a huge white stone fortress city built into a cliff, made of several levels. Picture here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Roturn_King-Minas_Tirith.jpg

It's the location of one of the main battles in the story.

I began to wonder what other favourite fictional cities from books or films you've always wanted to see in reality.

Pictures would be good.

So you would like to see a zombie infested city or a refuge from an apocalyptic pandemic in real life?

I was expecting awesome architecture, please explain. Smile

A world in which people need an extra gun or help with emergency medicine would be my forte. I have a rifle and some knowledge (and a great deal of interest in) emergency medicine... and the supplies to use both. Which makes me extremely valuable, which is in stark contrast with being a nothing and nobody irl.

Raccoon City because it's one big arcade game, and Boulder Free Zone because it'd be interesting to be present for a new chapter in human history.

In a fantasy setting - Sigil , I literally stopped entirely to bother with Dungeons and Dragons when Planescape was dropped.

The Citadel - a giant space station/ city and a lethal trap designed to kill every advanced civilisation.

Mine has to be the little town from Operation: Desert Storm II, honestly, my favorite city/town of all time, I used to rerun that mission hundreds of times, the tight corners and ambushes ♥

Axis City

When I saw the title of this thread I immediately came to think of this sci-fi novel written by Greg Bear, called "Eon".
Very good book and if you're into sci-fi (duh) I strongly recommend reading it..

And you can get a saussage-in-a-bun that probably won't kill you P

The Citadel is pretty badass. My favorite playable one from ME so far is Ilium. Can't wait to play on the Asari and Turian homeworlds (Thessia and Palaven)

I'm expecting the Asari homeworld to be somewhat like Athens and the Turian world to be something like Sparta.Lol

Oops didn't even noticed that one. Big smile

Although I like Star Wars I really hope they won't make another one. Remember what they did with episode 3?
