What Skyrim race do you choose to play?

RPG Xbox 360 Playstation 3 PC Bethesda News Adventure

Now that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has been out for over two weeks, everyone has had some time to grow accustomed to the various races that are able to be created. Some races don’t vary too much from one another in appearance but the Elven races, the Argonians, the Khajiit, or even the human races of them have certain stat bonuses or special skills that may factor into your decision. Then again, it could just simply be because you would rather play as a cat or a lizard type character than a more human oriented one.

Personally, my class of choice is the Khajiit, though I was a bit taken by surprise by the skills that accompanied his creation. This includes the ability to use claws in hand to hand combat which deal surprisingly large amounts of damage. The skill provides an extra hint of character development which I never thought possible upon my initial start up for the game.

That being said, what Skyrim race do you play? Would you play a race after studying their bonuses and choosing the that best fits your playstyle? Or would you simply choose the one that looked the most unique? Let us know below.

    I thought about the Khajiit, because I like to play as a theif/assassin, and they seem perfectly suited to it. But I was shallow and went for looks, and made a pretty hot/awesome looking Nord female. 😉

  • I choose the dark elf because I like heavy Armour, destruction magic and one handed combat, I also like to use things like speech & alchemy.

    So the dark elf is an all round average and bad-ass looking race with the added bonus of being 50% resist to fire which comes in handy with 60% of the dragons.

    I’m an awesome/hot female Nord  . I’m working on making her an assassin/thief.

    I thought about being a Khajiit since they look like they would make a good assassin/thief. I think I’ll try one out on my next character though, I want to try a dark elf as well.

      I’m a Khajiit, seeing as whenever I play Elder Scrolls games I suddenly suffer from kleptomania. It does mean I forget about combat and then get squished in the dungeons, but I’m RICH so I don’t mind haha.
