My favorite is Ultima 7 what a fantastic cities it have! But this question doesn't go only for cities but for other areas too.
So should we aim for smallish but meaningful? slightly bigger but less meaningful? what is your opinion? The drawback of too small and too meaningful is it will create a very small world…. so too small is also not good IMHO.
Big and empty like Oblivion is not an option.. no matter how much someone want it I won't do it
