In order of coolness:

1. Humans

2. Charr

3. Norn

The two elf races are too fruity for me.

They should have had dwarves instead of the asura so we could create a fellowship of the ring party.

Norn probably, or human, depends how spastic the attack animations are.

sucks charr is so high on the list. i hate them, they were such bastards in prophecies.

asura all the way to the bank.

Probably going to roll a Sylvari Elementalist. The idea of a plant-person lighting things on fire amuses me to no end.

I can see from my initial poll choice that I've already changed my mind three times in regard to what race I'll choose. I'm not indecisive ... it's just that they're all so gooood! Human -> Asura -> Sylvari. Who knows what will happen between now and release.

It'll be my first time playing the series and I haven't really been following the races that closely so....I'm not sure yet. I've been debating whether I should buy Guild Wars 1, so if that does happen I might just go with whatever race I pick then.

I'll probably start as a Norn. I was a ranger in GW1 and it was awesome, I figure that Norn fits that.

Norns have the best hairstyles so they win in my book.

Apparently I voted for nord, but I've changed my mind to Charr since then.

You don't get to choose race in the original Guild Wars; everyone is human.

I will be playing Human at first simply to carry on the legacy of my Guild Wars 1 main character, although admittedly Sylvari is the race I'm most excited to play.

Not sure, don't know what the difference between them will be like... but most likely i will make a human first, play for about an hour, and then make a char for each of the other races, and repeat the process...

Human as a protest against the wowitizaion of this game.

@UssjTrunks: Pretty sure the lore states that the dwarves are almost extinct.  They were in EotN, but even then there weren't many of them.

@RobbieMac: The few remaining ones are made out of granite, too, which would make for a hilariously limited character customization.

Aura

I always play the shortest race because comedy.

Asura. Instead of being all up in your face, they're all up in your crotch <3

Mushroom Cup, as usual.

Oh, wait. I have no idea what any of these are. I might just flip a coin :D
