Yeah, magic was a bit to required in Oblivion. And learning spells was not a cheap or easy process.

First Playthough-Dunmer. This was my first TES game and I thought the races were only aesthetic.Second Playthough-Breton. You can't beat 25% magic resistance. Best race in the game, as numerous guides will tell you.From my research, the best races are:1. Breton2. Orc3. Altmer4. Dunmer5. NordIn that order, except Altmer and Dunmer tie.

Honestly the race you choose really doesn't matter, as your skills will all be damned near maxed by the end of the game anyway. You could make slight arguments for which has the better power, but with the exception of Breton they're all pretty much useless and most players don't even use them. At least that's been my experience. 25% magic resistance is the best power (depending on your play type), but even that isn't really worth choosing a Breton over something you'd rather play as.

I respect your opinion, but I disagree. Although I've never played as an Orc myself, I know they have Berserker Rage, allowing you to deal double damage and take half damage for 60 seconds. This becomes BETTER as the game goes on. Dunmer is also good, since fire is a common element. All the others will become less useful with time though.

Yeah, you're probably right there. I just have an inherent need to defend the "all of the races are good, choose what you want" meme since there are so many TES noobs on Yahoo answers that want you to pick everything out for them. It protects my sanity. :3

My current is an Orsimer, I wanted to be an elf, that looked at least a little similar to a human, but i also wanted to be strong, I went through four or five Races but I wasnt happy without the superiority of an OrsimerBesides the High Elves Looked too horse faced, please no offence to anybody, they are atill three times better with magic that the OrsimerI may be the only one here that has not played OblivionBut did u guys know that the simbol used on the case of oblivion is actually a deadric alphabet O

I don't think anyone will take offense to debating Skyrim races. ;)

As I said earlier, my first Skyrim character was a High Elf. It did take me awhile to get the face how I wanted it, but it came out looking pretty decent/normal in the end. Something that I'm unable to do with Khajiits or Argonians.

Oh, and you just reminded me that Skyrim has no Posted Image (S) on the cover. Now I feel cheated, Bethesda.

Ha, well in that case, most won't as long as no one insults the intelligence of someone for choosing a specific race.As far as Argonians go, I can't say I ever remember sticking with a build that used that race. Maybe it's what I'll have to use for my next thief/assassing character.

How do you quote posts? I still don't know how to do that. Anyway, to ChevyNinja, I didn't play Oblivion either. Arena(1) and Daggerfall(2) are free on the TES website. Be warned, Arena is not user friendly AT ALL while Daggerfall is full of glitches.

Well, when Arena came out in 94 and Daggerfall in 96, how would you expect them to look?

How do you quote posts?

You just hit "quote" on the bottom right of the post you want to quote. This will add it instantly to your fast reply box.You can also do it multiple times by hitting "multiquote".You guys should make a thread for "What TES games have you played" and carry on that discussion there. That would be a good idea for another thread, and I don't believe we have one yet (though I may be wrong).
