I'm still waiting for the MMO that has nature as its theme. We all be animals, like spiders, cats, ferrets, birds, lemmings and whatever you can think of. Complete with player housing in the way of burrows, nests, nets and stuff.

I want to play a rhinoceros, too.

How could the article fail to include EQ/EQ2's Iksar? Lizardman/reptilian races may be all the rage in fantasy literature, but very few MMORPGs have them - and EverQuest did them proud as a Roman-like Empire in decline, seen as evil by most of the good-aligned races but the Iksar certainly didn't revel in evil for evil's sake like the Dark Elves. I certainly wish more MMORPGs had lizardmen.

Still at least you included Charr, so I'll let you off :p

I always liked DAoC's Trolls as well, for being a stone-like race rather than the more conventional slimy, green, swamp-dwelling, bloated-bellied cannibals as portrayed in EverQuest.

EQ2's frogloks seem fairly unique in MMO terms as well - not many MMOs let you play a frogman.

Love that you added Spiders to this list! Not cheating at all. I *heart* my spider on Landroval!

The demons are what's left of the eredar and maybe some broken, the dranei are not demons...

I'm not even sure if a fel version of any given species even counts as a demon...

EQ2 Frogloks were awesome. (they always reminds me of the frog from chrono trigger.)

Also why undead for AC? WoW has undead, as do a few other games. However, AC also features the empyrean, gearknights and shadows. AC also avoided the trend by launching with just humans.

How about Werefox (Venomancer? Not sure, played the MY version only) from Perfect World? Deadly, adorable and well... sexy as hell!
