Let me put my capital-b Bias up front and center here: Short races rock
. Whether they be Gnomes, Gibberlings, Asura, Hobbits, or Dwarves, if I have the option to play a diminutive character in an MMO, I'll take it. Even my City of Heroes
characters jacked down the slider to the shortest possible height. It's why I'm ecstatic that WildStar
will be offering the Chua as an option, because my purpose in life is to play a small rabid kangaroo-rat-thing.
So why do I play short races? Being somewhat short myself, I like putting my height out there in games as a point of pride instead of being ashamed of it. Plus, there's always something cool about watching a tiny dude beat up someone 1500% of his body mass. Plus plus, short races are often associated with a wicked sense of humor and irreverence. That's me, baby!
Enough about me; why do you play a short race? Where are my gnomies at today? Speak up, tiny brothers and sisters!
