Some character concepts work best with human characters, but some are better with other races, and some arevery race-specific. I like playing human characters, but I don't prefer it to any of the other standard races or their Core Rules sub-races.

Cheers,
Wyrm Pilot

I voted no. But I note that failing to have a preference for does not mean a preference against. Looking back, I find I have little or no preference for a paraticular race.

For the most part, yes, though I do enjoy the occasional weird thing. Recently, however, I've been diggin' the Halfling. I'm not sure why though. Of the five games I play in, I have 3 Humans and 2 Halflings.

I'm with Umbran on this one, I'm not opposed to playing humans, but play other races as often. It's rare that I'll play a gnome, but I don't know why. They just don't seem to feature in my thought process when making a character.

Yes, but far from exclusively. I've played Dwarves, Gnomes, Halflings and Elves at times, but much more often Humans.

Humans are among my favorites, yes, but I don't prefer them over my other favorites. It just depends on the character.

Heh... 50/50 split as of this post.

This one is a tough one to answer, but I went with no.

Why its tough is that sometimes race is a secondary consideration, and the human feats and skill points add some needed flexibility in getting what I want out of the character. So I said no. I don't necessarily prefer humans per se. I do prefer bonus feats at first level. ;)

Not only do I not "prefer" humans, but I haven't actually played a human yet in our current campaign. Two gnomes (regular and whisper models), one elf, and I'm currently brewing up a dwarf.

I prefer to play a character that inspires me. If it's human, great. If not, great. This is not a nuance that the poll allows for.

Nope, since 3.X came out I've played a dwarf, half-elf, half-orc, and a gnome. I have no preference to what race I play (though I sometimes lean towards the gnome).

I prefer humans, they are just easier for me to put myself in their shoes than say an elf or half-orc. If I play another race it is usually a dwarf.

I usually play humans.

I've played other races but the extra feat, skill point and no prefered class usually pulls me over to human.

Unless I'm going for a class or concept that absolutely demands a demihuman, I'll go with the human. As has been mentioned, the extra feat, skill points, Favored Class: Any are just too nice to pass up, on the whole.
