FFXIV has brought about a feeling for me I just can't get over. The lack of racial choices. In ffxiv, you get to choose only the races from the original ffxi, with different names.
I for one don't like to play as a human upright all the time. MMO's are overladen with humans, elves, and little people. I like to see unique races. I like the cat looking peoples of EQ, cats that look like cats not humans. The lizards and wolf/vamp options of elder scrolls. Red XIII was a feline race that looked like a dog, hell I like that. WoW has all kinds of options that seem to promote diversity.
I think that adding races would increase the player base. I mean there is a ton of people in the world that are just freaks, I guess I may be one. I crave something more unreal.
I know races are expensive to texture and armor. It would be insane to add these features to a game if it gives no added value. I guess I have a question, would unique races draw you to a game?
