When it comes to role playing games, I always have big trouble when it comes to choosing the right race and usually I go for the one which looks better in my opinion which is usually a wrong way to make a choice in a game. And with Skyrim launched now and so many races to choose from, I have decided to create this article and tell you which is the best race to choose in Skyrim in my opinion and hopefully receive some feedback from you with the best race to choose in the game and hopefully help other people choose the right race in Skyrim.

Basically, before choosing the race you must think about the type of gameplay you want: there is no “perfect” race in Skyrim and you should decide first if you want to be a warrior or a mage (or maybe an overall player). Only then you should consider about choosing the best race for your character.

For the warriors, I would always choose an Orc, Redguard or Nord (I actually started my first game with a Nord and I am really pleased with this race).

On the other hand, if you want to focus on magic, I would suggest you choose the High Elves (Altmer) or even Dark Elves.

In the end, the thing is that the best race to choose in Skyrim is the race that best fits your playing style. Because if you plan on being a master mage, a stupid Orc that has nothing else than raw force won’t help you that much!

But enough of that – let me know which race do you consider to be the best race in Skyrim?
