    I just realized that every single one of my Skyrim plays have been lycanthropes, and I've never been a Vampire Lord. xD

    Good for you. Don't think of this as a bad thing. I've been playing TES games since 2002 and yet to play as a vampire either.

    I can't think of any RPG where I've completely neglected playing one race or character type, and I haven't been playing any of them for over 10 years!  No wonder you're so werewolf-obsessed.

    Well, erm... variety is the spice of life... unless you're dead. Then it's the spice of undeath, I suppose?

    Caliente vampires!

    But yeah, it's all about the variety.  I even side with the Stormcloaks/kill Paarthy sometimes!

    I've sided with the Stormcloaks a few times (only with Nord characters, obviously) for role-play reasons, but never because I really wanted to.

    Werewolf obsessed? I'm not werewolf obsessed...

    Tsk, tsk.. You'll be saying I'm always talking about Aela the Huntress next and that I'm somewhat possesive over her.......

    I don't understand why anyone would pick werewolf over vampire unless they were talking about Skyrim Lycanthropy, then I can understand. If someone were to use traditional movie versions though the transformations would be uncontrollable and could happen any time. Sure, vampires burn to dust in sunlight but during the day you could stay inside and play Fallout or Skyrim all day and at night you could be Batman and hunt criminals.

    Not just Skyrim though.

    Wolf (1994)  ‘Jack Nicholson’ This film would be a cool wolf base to live by.

    In this film it depends upon the person as to whether the wolf inside is evil or not. ‘ol Jack hunts down deer in the local park.

    What’s not to love?

    Yes Skyrim Werewolf profiles gives us a much wider scope but most of the times with werewolf paraphernalia the person with the gift (And yes it’s a gift) lives normal lives.   

    Besides, Vampires sleep during the day so you couldn't go playing Skyrim. Vampires by most films are evil and more than likely join the criminal syndicates. Well actualy, lead them...

    Haha, yep. But it's just an 'eccentricity', right?

    Or they turn to pursuit of knowledge and arcane power. Which usually corrupts them, but eh. What's wizardry without a little eldritch abomination now and then?

    Exactly, Vampires are bad news.... Wait what?

    Vampires are evil.  Werewolves are man/Argonian in touch with their wild inner selves.

    Were wolves are as natural as Nature itself......... It's in the blood

    It's all a choice! Just because you're a vampire doesn't mean you are evil! Vampires choose what is necessary to their skills and survival. For instance, if someone was good at repairing cars and enjoyed it would he choose to be a carpenter? No, he wouldn't! Vampires are good at stealth so they CHOOSE to be assassins and thieves but they can be anything they wanted. For instance the people at half-moon mill are vampires and they commit no atrocities whatsoever, they just want to be left alone as millers.
