What's your preferred race to play as in Oblivion or Morrowind? Why do you play as it, looks, attributes, disposition to other people, role-playing?

I usually play as either Imperial or Dark Elf, they're the best blend of everything, in my opinion. Argonian may be a third, but I usually prefer playing as a more human-like character, whether it's a human or an elf.

Dark elf for me. A throw back to the Drow, I suppose. I just love the look of the dark-skinned elf with the white/silver hair. It's classic ;).

hmm it depends for me on what type of character i want to play, like if i wanted a warrior, i would most likely play a nord or redguard, for a theif i would play a wood elf or khajit, and a mage a high elf or a breton. my preferred race is the redguard tho, since they have some nice stats

i play as a dark elf in both games because of thier balance with bow, sword, and destruction. even though morrowind doesnt have good bow and arrow system, i do use it sometimes if the enemy is far away. i use the sword for very obvious reasons.(gaint hammers can still be fun tho :D) and magic can get u out of tight situations. out of arrows? did your sword break? blast a big fire ball at em. up against a ghost with nothing but a steel longsword? blast another fire ball. the only reasons i used to play as an imperial were: 1: i was new to the game 2: imperials get more respect 3: they have the Luck of the Emporor Power. now in morrowind as soon as i realized that Tiber Septim (aka Wulf) gives u the power anyways near the end of the main quest, i thought there was no point in being an imperial. another reason to play as a dark elf is because it is one of the races, where the flames on the swords TrueFlame and HopesFire arnt in the right spot.

I like Imperial. They rule the world and are the smartest race! Who cares if I can beat your skull in from birth? I prefer to convince them to kill themselves with my incredible speechcraft abibities.}> I don't have oblivion at the moment, So I am level 63 imperial in morrowind.

Nord. They look much better than the oter races, and I like the fact that they live in the mountains. However I am displeased at the fact that there are no bandits up in the peaks in the camps.

High elf for me. I like playing mages most so that why I pick high elf. If I use my warrior in Morrowind he is an orc because I like to run around with a huge hammer or axe and smash people.

My fav is Breton. I got lv70 breton female in Morrowind, and now i'm playing a breton in Oblivion. I like them for their magicka bonus. :)

i prefer the dark elf cuz everyone else in Morrowind is a elf(at least 60% of them are). They also have great balances, and their stat bonuses are great.
