    ...I'm surrounded by dwarf lovers!

    Still, I hope things turn around for you soon WhiteLantern!

    but Mike,

     

    Dwarfs are just awesome

    GW2 Norn - 9ft tall and 770lb of lean body mass in a Warrior and simply the best looking women in any game of any race. Winning combination.

    WoW Tauren - The real good guys of Azeroth.

    SWG Wookies - 'cause everbody loves Chewbacca.

     

    In the "coming soon" dept. I am looking forward to the Granok of Wildstar but I better be able to equip or display a cigar or I will be asking for my money back.

     

    All die, so die well.

    Truly, Warhammer Online had some of the coolest races and classes. My Top 3 would be:

    1. High Elves - Warhammer Online

    2. Empire - Warhammer Online

    3. Chaos- Warhammer Online

    I agree with the Nord Lore. That's why my first character was one. I like their area, too. They just "felt" sluggish to me and the voice did not sit well for me :)

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    1. Everquest and EQ2 half elves. There was just something about this race that is hard to explain. Maybe it was the way the NPCs would taunt my character saying things like "half a man is a cripple, what is half an elf?" another taunt I can remember is "Half perfect, half disgusting." This left the impression that this wasn't some generic race I was playing but something with real Lore. Made me really feel like I was part of the world.

     

    2. Lineage II Dark elves. I liked the fact that they weren't just rip offs of dungeons and dragons drow but had their own story specific lore. It felt like they were an ancient and proud race that was just trying to protect its land from encroaching and changing times. Even their goddess that protected them was dying or something. As the story progressed their city was actually destroyed and was turned into a dungeon.

     

    3. Neverwinter Halflings mostly just because of the way they look. This is the way I always though halflings were supposed to be.

    The lore of the Norn is cool, I give you that. But they are damn ugly... second uglies race ever (after daoc - firbolgs)

    If you think Norn women are ugly, then you must just generally not like women... ;-)

    There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein

    Humans -- about 80% of all my characters in all games are human.

    Half-Elves, especially EQ1.

    The leggy anime boobasaur shown in the Cyber Monsters 2 ad.  (really, wasn't there a general hue and cry to curtail such advertising on MMORPG.com just a few short weeks ago -- guess the almighty dollar won that one)?

    Logic, my dear, merely enables one to be wrong with great authority.
