I picked Cheydinhal because of the city's inner beauty and the river going through the city making it look pretty, albeit Chorrol having a magnificent forest outside, it was the outside so i picked Cheydinhal what about you guys?

I like the idea of the Imperial City a lot more than I liked its execution.

Of all the cities I've visited in games, I think I prefer Skingrad.

I gotta agree with you on Cheydinhal. I found Anvil very pretty too, and I think the Imperial city could have been stunning if the game had done it justice; I also loved Ald'Ruhn, and Mournhold.

Oh man I love many of the cities though. Every one has good sides and bad sides.

Oh no wait. 4th Era Raven Rock is definitely my favourite.

Im confused Xarnac, but Raven Rock was nice, a nice slice of the good ol days of Morrowind, also isnt Anvil a bit run down and dirty or is that something else im thinking of? (Flame war kindling added.)

Well, part of Anvil's charm for me was its port/harbor (is that the right words?), actually. But as I recall, most of the town with the exception of two or so houses was quite well-kept :)

It was a Sunglasses At Night parody, since it sounds like Corey Hart is saying Cheydinhal over and over again in the chorus.

Honestly? I think my favorite city would have to be Vivec City for Morrowind, Skingrad for Oblivion, and Markarth for Skyrim.

Besides the obligatory Vivec and Mournhold, I always liked Balmora. It always felt like home.

In Oblivion, Anvil or Skingrad.

And in Skyrim, my favorite all-round is Solitude but aesthetically it would be Markarth or Windhelm.

I gotta agree with you on Balmora always feeling like home. It's probably since you keep returning there for both guild quests and main quests.

Akron, but I'll settle for Cleveland.

Forgive them. Cleveland and Akron are two illustrious cities of my native Ohio. And by the sound of it, Brian and Dargor can claim to be natives too.

For all my griping, Ohio is a nice enough place to live. The bar business is known to drain ones soul, even if I've been out of it for years. And I have met way more TES fans from Ohio online then I would have ever expected to. :P

OT, I really don't know what my favorite city is. The Imperial City during its heyday sounds like a great place to be, but I have always wanted to visit Sentinel as well. Windhelm is also up there, and Alinor as described in the first PGE would be a sight to see. As for the games themselves, going with Windhelm I suppose, though Solitude is also awesome.

I only ever played Skyrim so I don't know anything about previous game's cities. That said, I really liked Whiterun, it was a big city with a small town feel. I like that.

I've had homes in many cities and town across Tamriel, but Raven Rock is so far my favorite city.

Yep, I see the connection. :D

I always liked Skingrad, partly because the castle was so mysterious.

Dagor I reside in Ohio too. Nice to meet ya!

One of my favorite cities is Balmora. Just has that homey feel to it.

Hmm. Just realized I never weighed in on this.

I'm going to pick Chorrol. Call it nostalgia, but I love that goddamn place.

I hated almost all cities in Oblivion because they felt distinctly un-Imperial/Cyrodiilic. The only ones I actually liked were the Imperial City, Leyawiin and Anvil.

Most of Skyrim's cities were unanimously boring save for Markarth, Solitude and Whiterun.

Morrowind had the best cities. It's really uncontestable. My favourites were Sadrith Mora, Vivec City, Mournhold, Balmora and Ald Ruhn. I really also loved Tel Branora, Suran and Tel Aruhn.

Fair enough but WIndhelm was a good favourite for me speaking of Whiterun i suspect it used to be a fortress town and it had MANY walls like Gondor in LOTR because if you look carefully at Whiterun Watchtower there are bit of wall coming out of it.

I think Anvil feels like home for me because it is by the sea. Also, it has a prophet shouting outside the window all day - listen to him rant from the comfort of your own manner. 'Ware the ghosts, though!

The little stinger operation quest is neat too

Speaking of Prophets, I really like listening to Heimskr. He give quite the peptalk.

New Sheoth has its perks, but the smell is too much for me.

I don't understand. What do you mean the nearby werewolf thing?
