I have a affection for the mega city. I simply love the concept. Therefor I start this thread to discuss mega cities and science fiction. Which is the greatest dystopian mega city in sci-fi? Is it The Sprawl (Neuromancer), Detroit (RoboCop) or San-Angeles (Demolition Man)? Which are the coolest city states/one-corp states?
