    What races to you end up playing as the most in TES games?

    I tend to stick with Redguard, Dunmer, or Altmer.

    I occasionally will go with Khajiit or Orc in Skyrim.

    Imperial, actually. Not what I'd have thought, but that's how it turned out. Once I'm making characters just for the fun of it, Redguard will probably be it.

    I might make thus into poll actually...

    I would be interested in the outcome, I have been hoping for one along these lines.

    Mine is Dunmer, by far. Followed by Nord probably, only because the game is set in Skyrim, in Oblivion my 2nd most played was Imperial. In Morrowind it was 'OMG double Dunmer'. Thumbs up if you get the reference.

    At this point in time I would expect Nord to win. But who knows? I have honestly never played as a Nord before.

    The only race I have never played in Skyrim is an Altmer

    Dunmer, followed by Redguard and Khajiit. Even though the Altmer are my third favorite race, I prefer to play as a Khajiit.

    The most, hmm... Probably Altmer or Bosmer (likely the second), my first two favorite races in TES

    I really like the way Khajiit look in this game, They have some great customization options. I just can't get over their tales clipping through their armor. It really bugs me, even though I play mainly in first-person. Also, some headgear looks awkward on them.

    Breton, then Dunmer, and Bosmer last. But I also play around a bit with Khajiit and Argonian from time to time.

    Dunmer followed very closely by Altmer and Bosmer, i rarely play the beast races though.

    I liked the Breton the most. Almost always I picked them in Skyrim and Oblivion.

    I have only played as a Bosmer and a Nord...  Crazy right but I don't feel a connection with the other types.  I read the Lore section here trying to turn myself around but haven't yet.  Although I must admit I may try as an Altmer, I do like their lore history and would think it would be cool to try.

    Bosmer, Khajiit and Argonian seem to be the ones I play the most. I have a few Bretons and Imperials as well. Altmer and Orcs I don't play that much at all compared to the rest.

    Imperial by very far. Some Altmer and Nord in there too, but mostly Imperial.

    Khajiit, rarely anything else.

    I feel like saying what I play as most would come as no suprise...

    So my second most played race would probably be Breton.

    I keep going back to Imperials when I get bored, but a Khajiit crops up every once in a while.

    Strangely, the Dunmer have never interested me in the slightest.

    Argonians and Nords.

    I've only ever played the beast races, but definitely Argonians over Khajiit

    I have played a lot of the races but the one I like to play as the most is the breton.
