Playing as a Dark Elf obviously. Best all around race in the game imo. They can be excellent at melee, magic, bow and sneaking. The only magic I use is offensive magic and a few heal spells and to survive large dungeons, sneaking is key. Imperial's are much better this time around and getting more gold in loot is always cool. Race doesn't seem as important this time around since Attributes have been taken out for a simpler approach.
On another note, I miss the old character menu from Oblivion.
I'll have to get used to the new one. Everything else is simply amazing. GOTY easy.
