The City from the Thief series
Divinity's Reach from Guild Wars 2 because it actually looks like a city with a huge population unlike
Solitude from Skyrim, which is beautiful but only like 15 people live there so I dunno if it really counts as a city.

Nothing unique here but for mine probably:

Video game: Columbia from Bioshock. I didn't really even think the game was anything more than just OK but the city concept is neat.
Movie: LA in Blade Runner, both new and old. A classic.
Book: Rama from Rendezvous with Rama. Kind of pushing it here because it's more of a miniature world, but does have buildings and crap so I'm claiming it for this purpose.

This novel is such a beautiful inspiration of strange and bizarre city ideas.

Tree Bucket posted:

....what exactly is going on here?

It's a novel that's told in the perspective of a traveler who discovers strange cities. The cities are all fiction, and a lot of them are impressive simply because of the strange nature in which things happen about in each city.

I read it about ten years ago, so sorry if my memory is fuzzy. If you like Kafka, or novels that deal a lot in abstract or open end thinking, you might like this book.

“Cities, like dreams, are made of desires and fears, even if the thread of their discourse is secret, their rules are absurd, their perspectives deceitful, and everything conceals something else.”

I was going to say that because buying the ability to float for a day would be pretty sweet, but then I remembered how badly it got loving destroyed at the start of the 4th era.

Living on Nirn is a horrible idea in general. Vampires, daedra, cultists, slavers, cannibal elves, assholes who walk into your house and rob you but you can't do anything because you didn't actually see the instant they pocketed your stuff.
