    My favorites are khajiit, altmer, and imperials. If I have to pick one I pick khajiit because of the moon culture

    Khajiit
    My favorite race has to be Dunmer. They know they are superior and they express this knowledge through slavery. Betmer are little more than animals and humans aren’t very far ahead. Without their Dunmer masters, they would be rolling around in the mud like pigs. Plus, I love House Telvanni’s Nietzschean philosphy of will to power.

    Khajiit were developing an advanced society before your Elves ever decided on breaking away from Summerset as Exiles, and Argonians were master stonemasons constructing monumental pyramids before your Elves decided to be lazy with their labor.

    Khajiit were even created by lady Azurah herself to be the best traits of Man and Beast, a true superior being.

    I must admit that Khajiit do make fine coats. I suppose that is an asset in their favor.

    The original stature of a race matters little if they are now too weak to even protect their own homeland from foreign slavers. Pathetic. It doesn’t matter how unique or skilled a culture was if it can now only be acted upon by others, be it the Dunmer or the Dominion.

    Superiority isn’t about the will of some divine being; it is about the will of a people to rise above the others and expand their sphere of influence through imperialism. If the other races can’t keep up, they are inferior and deserve to be subjugated. It’s simply a matter of natural selection.

    Redguards
    It was really a tough choice... I've always loved vikings, so Nords were a big contender; TES Orcs are awesome, especially female Orc warriors (then again, I respect all warrior-women), they're also really friendly once they get to know you (and vice versa), and are really just misunderstood; with 22 cats of my own, Khajiit were definitely a consideration; the Dunmer's rebel attitude has always attracted me, but ultimately I was turned away upon being reminded of the fact they enslave Argonians and Khajiit; Argonians are cool because they're so mysterious, and I love how ESO is finally giving us insights into their civilisation and culture; Imperials and Bretons are bland, just a bunch of whiny politicians (as an American, I deal with enough news about whiny politicians on a regular basis, I don't need it in my video-games, thank you very much), although Oblivion was also my introduction to TES, as well as RPGs in general; I love wizards, sorcerers, mages, spell-casters of all kinds, but Altmer are too stuck-up for me (nonetheless, I'm extremely excited for ESO: Summerset; I've always wanted to visit the Summerset Isles in a modern TES game, due to its description as lush, vibrant, high-fantasy parkland). In the end, I finally decided on the oft-overlooked Redguards, a.k.a. Ra-Gada, due to their highly-spiritual culture and practical worship of the sword, as well as all the poetry they've created about the Alik'r (I have an African-American friend who's a poet, so that's another factor). I've always liked playing Redguards because of their well-rounded warrior skills; Nords and Orcs may be better smiths, but nothing sends fear into the enemy faster than a Redguard Ansei summoning the Shehai and watching one's allies being cut down by a sword of pure spiritual energy while the summoner stands well away from the advancing horde. It's also hard to top the sight of a warrior twisting, twirling 'round with two blades, something else the Redguards are famous for.

    'But the movement is called ''PAWS''!', the crowd yells, 'Why'd you change it to ''PARS''? That's not a word!'
    Agmar replies: 'Actually, ''pars'' is a word; it's the plural of ''par'', a term used in golf to refer to the average score for a hole, course, or tournament. Not that there's anything wrong with the word ''paws'' (I currently have four dogs and twenty-two cats, so I don't think animals with paws bother me. Neither do any other animals, for that matter; I love animals!), just that ''PAWS'' stands for ''Positively Against Wrip-off Stuff'', and mis-spellings do bother me.'

    Which is exactly what Argonia does in the 4th Era.

    I like the Khajiit a lot. Love their designs, love their voices, love their attitude. Redguard are a close second, thanks to their zone, lore and costume and environment design.

    Khajiit
    Khajiit, by far. There's so much mystery, there. And they're the only people outside of Sotha Sil's little brass collegium that can utilise free-floating holograms. Where are they hiding the projectors? I mean, likely in the altar tables, but still. They have a colony on one of the moons, they can travel to the moons more effortlessly than any race, and they're the only race that really knew what was going on amidst the Dragon-break (time is gawrn!) event.

    There's so much to them that we just don't know and it drives me absolutely bonkers. Plus, the manes can just manifest wherever and whenever they like, effortlessly. What's up with that? Can any other leaders of yore do that? Then there's the whole thing with the shadows of Rajhin. "Oh, I'm just going to steal your sleep and force it onto another. And then I'll boop your entire elf city out of existence and bind you to icy fate."

    Furthermore, we know so little about their new samurai/bushido/monks-esque approach to following the path of Ja-Kha'jay. That's really new. Also, how large is the khajiit information/spying network? There are alfiq everywhere in ESO, strategically placed all over the place. You can spot them by their glowing eyes, and some of them are up to very suspicious activities indeed (nice attention to deal with that, for those who spot it).

    And, I mean, they're hands-down the most visually distinctive race. If argonians looked more like alligators or had more reptilian qualities, they might take that crown, but for now it's the khajiit as so much more can be done with them visually with a variety of facial adornments, hairstyles, and so on. Even the bone structure of the face can matter a lot when making a character, it can lead to so many different kinds of big cat looks.

    So my vote is for the fuzzy fellahs. May they walk on warm sands.

    I have played Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim and eso, and my first or main character has allways been Altmer for their magicka affinity.
    So being able to go to Summerset now is really exciting for me.
