I've never heard an overwhelming view that people hate Chicago because of the people. I tend to hear the opposite.

Same with the point that Chicagoans are always trying to compare themselves with other cities. I always tend to notice the opposite. That compared to many other major cities - Chicagoans don't really compare since it's a fairly unique city without any clear "twins" or really similar cities to have a rivalry. New York and Chicago are both urban, but talk to people who have spent a lot of time in both cities - and they're actually EXTREMELY different areas. Same with LA. Chicago and LA are just so different for many reasons.

It's all just personal opinion. Truths that are quoted are facts, not just observations.
Whenever someone QFTs something, it's because they personally agree with it. I never said those things that were said were "facts" - I just happen to agree with that particular poster's assessment.

As for Chicago not having any twins, I'd say the larger midwest cities, such as Detroit and Minneapolis, have a good amount in common with Chicago.

Whoever is hating on LA is hating for a reason....Los Angeles rivals Miami for the most beautiful women in the country. In LA, you rarely see clouds, and it's usually 75 degrees. You see Mercs and Range Rovers everywhere. Nightlife is great, Sebastian Ingrosso of the Swedish House Mafia lives here and plays at the Avalon all the time. As far as I'm concerned, the only city in America that rivals LA in anything is Miami. Have a nice day.

one thing is that there are a lot of movies/ books/ games that take place in New York and LA, not to mention Hollywood. Chicago is starting to appear more now though, like in divergent, and a new game called watch dogs

All I know is that Los Angeles has the most powerful brand image worldwide, and I'm actually very surprised Chicago is above Shanghai/Beijing/Tokyo since very few out of the USA probably knows about it

Unfortunately for LA, its reputation doesn't seem to rank as well as its brand.

I'm not an LA hater. Just be careful when you flaunt studies and surveys.

If you read the Guardian article, it explains that the criteria for brand scores are based in part on "Facebook likes and Twitter sentiment analysis." Guess what?

-- "Although the research was not limited to English language results, the use of social media sites popular among western countries must be taken into account when digesting the list. In China, Renren and Weibo are used rather than Facebook and Twitter, which may go some way to explaining the poor showing of Shanghai, for example. Tokyo scores a buzz of just 2, again due partly to Japan using its own social media engines – yet Seoul does remarkably well on the same criteria." --

I'm not dismissing the brand survey, but I don't put much stock in studies that are based on Facebook likes.

Besides, once San Francisco finds out that they ranked behind Rio de Janeiro, they'll quickly inform you that the entire survey is flawed and therefore worthless.

Lol, what? Who cares where Sebastian lives, why would that dictate what makes LA better than other cities? LA and Miami are both great cities but have plenty of down falls. The weather in LA is great but the traffic is awful, home prices are still too high, cost of living isn't exactly cheap, and the LA skyline sucks!

so your evidence to refute my arguement is a study done by Master Card (not even the slightest bit of academic integrity) and an article about an EA games regional head quarters.... Yawn....
Great display of manners and classiness here. PS you are the last person that should be talking about intelligence due to the fact that your spelling is some of the worst I have ever seen in my life.

LA will almost always be a central place for filming because the studios and producers are nearby, but the setting for the movie and book is Chicago.
