Is whiterun the "perfect" city in skyrim?
Markarth is just filled with stone and corruption, windhelm is too bitter, cold, racist, and depressing, riften is filled with thieves, and solitude has too many junior nazeems running around. But whiterun seems like the perfect city. What do you think?

I'd actually say yes. Whiterun is a pretty nice place to live in if you like the Arcadia vibe.
I believe that its 'perfection' was a deliberate design choice. Being the first major city that most players enter and get their first home, its idyllic atmosphere make it a very welcoming place to be.

Being initially relatively separate from the civil war also helps with this, so that the player doesn't feel like they're choosing either side by living there.

Windhelm- Racisttttttttt
Ain't a nord, ♥♥♥♥ off.
Solitude- Everyone's a prick there, all Royal and stuff.
You'll get exexcuted by the mere mention of thinking the Stormcloaks are okay.
Morthal- It's creepy. Really creepy.
You live in a swamp, there's a house with a ghost in it...
Really, really creepy.
Dawnstar- Freezing dock town.
Horrible nightmares and dragon food.
Markarth- Corrupted and attacked by those Forsworn morons.
"Blood and silver flow through Markarth."
Riften- Thieves, thieves everywhere.
Winterhold- Frozen, horrible economy, almost all of it fell into the ocean, and everyone blames the mages for it. Bad place to be one...
Whiterun- Two clans fueding that don't really do anything. And... that's it.
Quaint place. 10/10 ign

I like white run but generally none of the places in skyrim are worthy of my great sword.

I gauge the city based on how useful the player house is. A house containing an enchanting table, a forge, a bench, a whetstone, an alchemy table and beds is my ideal. Fort dawnguard it is.

Its barely a town; let alone a city, with extraordinarly bad defensive 'walls'.

One good plague and the population of skyrim would never recover.

One good invasion and skyrim would loose.

Relating much of anything in this fantasy world to reality is a bad choice. If we cannot relate to it, then we cannot rely on any conjecture as this requires understanding and rationalising.

Personally I cannot accept any of the 'towns' in Skyrim as coherent or real.

That water feature alone would cost an arm and a leg in manpower if it were to degrade.


But sure, its got charm.

Whiterun is like a very basic place for beginners. The imperials are all loyal to their King. I wish Whiterun was bigger, like King's Landing from Game of Thrones.
