I've always enjoyed the bow and arrow characters, Love my hunters in Wow and Rift, Am enjoying it in GW2 as well. I used to love casters, back from maxxing out magery in UO back in the day.
In Vas Flam, Corp Por for the win, LOL
Depends on the game and what's available- I mostly prefer buffing/debuffing classes more than anything else for PvE, for PvP I prefer burst dps/cc
Ive always liked DPS ranged magic-users. And thats been since my 1st days of playing AD&D back in the early 80's.
Now GW2 has moved my out of me comfort zone with its lack luster Elementaist class and has me playing a magic-melee class; the Mezmer. And Ive enjoyed it enough I made a Guardian, and have had a lot of fun playing a pure melee class for the first time since, well since playing a Fighter in AD&D.
But my first and favotrite in any game will always be the Wizard-style class.

I am addicted to lightsaber LOL.
Always played a healer in MMOs (EQ2, AoC, Aion, Rift), but I found that I am in love with my Sith Assasin (Darkness - tank built) and that I am actually doing a pretty good job as a tank. That was a bit surprising for me but I absolutely love it not even saying that playing males in SWTOR is so much more fun than playing females

What can men do against such reckless hate?
It really depends on the game. In Precu SWG I played a creature handler/gunfighter, so maybe a lot like a hunter type fighting ranged and with pets. I also played a fencer/terikasi master in the same game though, so that was melee.
I like sword and shield a lot because I like to be close to the action and I like the look of armor. In WOW my favorite class was warrior and paladin.
In GW2, I am playing a hunter. It really suits me because I like exploring and trying to find the various pets kinda keeps me going on that.
Any non-magic-users classes for me.
Don't like any of that magic crap.
I miss the MMORPG genre. Will a developer ever make one again?

I like jack of all trade type classes. If it heals, damages, debuffs, buffs, has ranged, has melee, etc ... I am all over it.
I traditionally cannot play for long specialization classes. Pure melee bores me, pure ranged bores me and no alternate or support role options bores me. I have played rogue type classes as alts often though.
Two classes I never play: Warrior types (they play like the stereotype they are: meat head/shield) and never, ever a tank. I also never play archers as they tend to specialize too much into one form of combat. I did however enjoy the Squig Herder from WAR. Pretty much the only thing I liked about that game. I would also add pure healers. I require a multi-purpose role and refuse to be a health bar healer and nothing more but I enjoy support in other ways (see below:).
I would likely vote my all time favorite class from any game to be the Lore-Master from Lotro. Tons of powers from single target to zomgZORCH aoe's, heals, pets, debuffs and buffs contributing to about the most unique form of support play I have ever played in a class, tons of CC and shockingly effective melee (sword and staff dual-wield ... seriously what game ever offered that? 'Tis sweet as hell). All this coupled with the best talent system of any mmo (once you get them all that is and open all slots. Technically you can add legendary weapons as a secondary talent system as well on top of it).
The Captain class (and other support/heal type melee classes in other mmo's) I have also played but it's lack of dps and/or just a tad too much melee base deters me from doing more than just dabbling into this type of class.
Druids in Wow at once time were amazing ... when you could hybrid spec but Bliz has ensured now that their talent system is fully supportive to the needs of lobotomized monkeys and hybrids are not only dead but the system doesn't even allow it anymore. I am sure Bliz won't be satisfied until they simplify their game to be functional on a smart phone for the juvenile ADHD player base.
You stay sassy!
Shaman type classes have always been my go to. The Beastlord from EQ will always hold a spot in my heart for favorite class ever followed by the FFXI Redmage and Beastmaster. Hell I even loved the Vanilla WoW druid when actually actively shifting for the situation you needed at the time.
Pet, heals, debuffs, buffs, melee, emergency tank, all in one package. Not the best at any but when someone played them right, and knew what you could do with your class, your spot in a group was well worth it. (Beastlord)
Always liked the "twitch" aspect of the hybrid classes since even though you weren't the best at a certain task, if your group trusted you to be that backup <fill in roll> if needed , the personal satisfaction of doing that well and getting through it made my nights in game.
I usually play hybrid classes, but sometimes ill just play anything...
Also having Alt ADD sucks lol
Any non-healer. When I heal...people die...it's like a kiss of death...lol
I prefer Caster DPS and Tank
Necromancer...or any evil, dark mage class.
vanila icecream mages bores the crap out of me. I never liked melee class for some reason.

Spoken like a true Dwarf. Let me buy ye a pint of ale.
I used to alway play melee, mostly warriors, but if the game had a good rogue class that was great too.
Now I am starting to think, standing back and shooting huge fireballls might be a better way to go.

Why do I see 2 people in full armor discussing this and the second asking "Dont you mean orc?"
But it would be nice with a MMO with not such much magic in it, it is not exactly like the heroes in Conan or Lord of the ring use that much magic, even Gandalf is only casting a few spells during all the books.
Personally I would like a historical MMO with no healing in it, that would rock.
And yeah, I am not so much fan of magic classes either.
1. Heavy Armor Classes with "heavy" pole weapons - Offensive and Defensive hybrids.Most mmos don't have those it's always "Warrior" offensive which does a pole weapon nor the "heavy" weapon any justice. (Aside from most not having pole weapons in most mmos).Examples: Dreadnaugh L2, Commando SWTOR (Heal and support), Lotro Captain (before moria and 3 colors).
2. Fast, utility classes. (_Not_ the stealth rogues, and cc mages i dislike those classes)Again most mmos don't have those either. Examples: Treasure Hunter L2, Mesmer GW2, Monk D&D. Sawbones Smuggler SWTOR.
in order of preference:
1. healer/full support
2. ranged damage (be it magic or other)
3. stealth (thief and similar).
