I'm just curious as to why so many people are being Nords? Please don't reply "because they're awesome"

Because Skyrim was the latest Elder scrolls game and as you know Skyrim was the home if the Nords.
It may also be that people want to start TESO with a human character so they can get a rough understanding of the games mechanics.

Yes. And Nords are all some people know considering how Skyrim was the latest game. Many people have only played Skyrim for this reason and thus really have only been introduced to Nords, and that's what is familiar to them

Maybe they want to fight for the whole land. I think when people start playing they usually intend on being warriors, and humans - especially the Nords - have got a lot to fight for. Also, to learn the mechanics, as mentioned earlier.

One of my first chars were a Nord, and I Always tend to make a Nord warrior alt :) They are awsome!

Well one of my Nords chars turned out to become a wizard in his travels, he replaced his axe with fireballs...

But I did kill a lot of monsters with that axe!

Nords make great walls... and yeah that's about it.


‎I must not fear. Fear is the mid-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total annihilation. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

When I think of a Nord the first thing I compare them to is a viking warrior. I mean the resemblance is uncanny. I'm not going to make the point of horned helmets because that is a large misconception about vikings. However, they are big burly warriors that live in a land that is very harsh and the great warriors who die feast forever in the afterlife (valhalla = sovengarde). That is why I am playing a Nord.

However, with the release of the character customization video from Zenimax Online, I am very tempted to make an orc. He will be as tall and buff as possible with a pale skin tone, potentially with a missing arm (Azog anyone?). No but seriously I played an orc shaman for 3 years on WoW so there would be something nostalgic about making a orc.

Bretons are still, according to the largest pre-game survey made the most popular race, yet all these threads are regarding Nords.

Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if that's only because of the guy in that cinematic. . which reeaally should've been a bosmer if you ask me.

I've liked Nords and Orcs since Morrowind. It just so happens that I'll be playing one when ESO comes out. I kinda think the main reason that there are a tons of Nords, is that the Imperials are not playable and the Nords have such a rich background and cool lifestyle. I also think that Bretons are pretty awesome.
