So what defines a "fake city" then?

I think a city I made in SimCity would be considered a "fake" city

Traditional vacation/resort cities are easy targets...but Orlando and Las Vegas have obviously become more than a place to play over the past couple of decades. They have turned into popular places for people to live as well.

Well according to many posters from a certain region a fake city is anything not in the Northeast or Mid-Atlantic. With San Francisco, Portland, and Seattle the exceptions.

You know, cause this ( Orlando in late November - All Around Town - SkyscraperCity ) doesnt look anything like a city.. more like a village or or rural town or a just an empty piece of land... what does it look like to you?

There is no such thing as a fake city, if it is listed as a city then its a city, if its listed as a town then its a town.. The only thing i would consider a fake city is a make believe city in a movie, or a city you made in simcity.. something like that.
