Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion
Concider all the elements of the game before you ancuer and if you can't decide - just enter your top 2 or 3 favorites.
My favorite race has allways been the argonians.
They have unique abillaties that can really be of use.
they also make very good mages. I should know - I joined the arcane university with mine.
The invinceabillaty to poison and extreme resistance to desiese mean 2 things less to worry about.
Actually, it says in the Strategy Guide for the game that the best character is the one you're most happy with, not the most efficient.
I personally like to play as an Imperial all the time, because he looks human. Redguards, well, not so much.
(dark elves for you less knowlegdable people)
they ARE good all-around and, well, they look awesome
i agree, im the kind of person who likes to not be noticed, but when i am, i can kill quickly, thats why i like dark elves and heavy armor (i need protection)
