Halfling - EQ2 / LOTRO That's my top 10. EQ2 probably has the best racial selection out of any MMO at the moment. Although TERA has some pretty cool races, just not as diverse. Looking forward to EQ Next as I love the EQ races and lore.
I like those EQ/EQ2 choices! For me, City of Heroes had the best system of character creaation. Every game should do something like that.
High Elves(or Asur) from Warhammer Online. But every race from that game looks good really-and true to IP. Weird animations and various assorted bugs ruined it for me tho...
High Elves(or Altmer) from TES. They are so...haughty looking. Noble really. And magical. And they should be those things. Don't Like beards on Elves tho...
Elves from LoTR:O-really nice looking. The same that applies to WAR's races applies here as well. But there is not enough difference between characters...
Elyos from Aion did humans pretty well(or rather Angels)
And Btw-those so called "Elves" in WoW are really ugly. Antenna ears ftl . They are fugly in all aspects(yes Asur can look Battle-hardened ugly, but not ugly ugly).
So with all that said-I have to go with Elyos(objectivelly). Subjectivelly, It'd be either Asur or Altmer or Calaquends(but you can't play them-Noldors are good I guess).
I have a thing for Elves, don't I?
1. DAoC = Celts
2. WoW = Undead, Orc
3. GW2 = Human
4. SWToR = Human
5. Warhammer, AoR = Chaos, Dark Elves

Shorter races in general I prefer. Mostly. Petite might be more accurate since they don't always have to be amazingly smaller than the other races.
Fae/Arasai in EQ2 for example
Halflings in DDO
Asura from GW2
In general it goes on like that for most I have tried. I'll end up playing elves of some sort if they are the smaller race often as well.
Otherwise it's a human with the slider at it's low end.

"The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge." - Daniel J. Boorstin
Sylvari in GW2. Undead in WoW I agree with as well.
Other than that I usually hate non human races. Especially cat-people with ears and tails.
ETA: That said, I do prefer games with a lot of choices in regards to race / class.
I for one really like the Miqo'te race from Final Fantasy XIV I think they are adorable
Pretty much dwarves in any game but to be more specific the games are below.
War - Dwarves, probably my favorite.
DAOC - Dwarves
Shadowbane - Dwarves and Centaur
Orcs in Lineage 2, they are just completely different to the general idea of how Orcs should be.
Iksar in EQ2 I love playing Lizardmen especially evil ones and thats leads to my next one.
Dark Elves in Vanguard I see a theme forming here, another tough and nasty race.
I also like playing Barbarian type races like in EQ/EQ2 and now in GW2 I'm playing a Norn, tough, heavy drinking, no-nonsense fighter types who hail from the cold mountain regions.
I also like playing Wood/High Elves for that holier than thou superiority feeling they bring to MMO's.

Oooo, this turned into a picture thread!
Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!
Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!
Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!
That's about it, Dwarves.
I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil
