    I can sum up why I like it in four words: "TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES!"

    'Cides, my best fighting game is Soul Calibur III, a button masher's nightmare. I'll even try to post a video of my skills on youtube, just for you. T_T

    The reptilian race in The Elder Scrolls series of games aren't evil (well, I'm sure some of them are, but they're not uniformly evil). They're called Argonians.

    Let's see...
    Isn't there a lizard species called Iksar in Evercrack?
    I haven't played it myself, but I read a webcomic that is loosely based on the game world and which has a lizard/Iksar as one of the main characters.


    There's also Arokh, the dragon from the Drakan games.

    Drakan - Order of the Flame (pretty old by now, so the graphics are dated. I thought it had good control though, and it featured aerial combat as well as ground combat).

    Drakan - Ancients' Gates (which I never got past level 2 on, because my PS2 was stolen :( )

    Yes, EQ had men wearing lizard costumes. And with tails superimposed atop their leg armor.

    Must have been the same from Oblivion

    The tail animations were better in Oblivion than Morrowind (even though they used the same for both argonians and khajiit), but I agree that the made the Oblivion argonians way too mammalian.

    It was because they used only one skeleton to make all the races and both genders, making the khajiit and argonians too mamalian and the females very mannish.
    Even female fitness competitors and bodybuilders doesn't look male in terms of skeletal build and muscle composition.

    Oh well, the problem has been adjusted via mods by now.
    You can get females that look more feminine and argonians with proper beast legs.
    Khajiit too I think, though their lore actually supports a more human-looking sub-species.

    Spyro makes me want to cry, honestly. How many times is that guy going to forget how to breathe fire just so he can re-learn it as a power-up?

    There is an MMO called Horizons where you could play as a dragon... but it wasn't very anthro

    There's "Reign of Fire" where you play against a horde of dragons (based on the movie of the same name) but it's a crappy game.

    For Oblivion argonians specifically:

    (Lists many good mods in the Readme)

    (Argonian feet)

    http://www.slofshive.co.uk/index.php?page=modarticle&modarticle/id=5ifgqqku2oc
    (Slof's better beasts (might not be available at the moment))

    http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=13444
    (Morrowind-style argonians, head only)


    There's actually a mod that adds a khajiit race (felidae of Nirn IIRC) that removes the breasts for the females (or rather, gives them flat chests), but for some reason this has not yet been made for the argonians, as far as I know.

    To get females to look more feminine, look for Fantasy Figures (TFF or UFF), Exnem, HGEC or BAB.
    There's also Robert's Seamless Male which gives they guys a huge improvement as well.

    Screenshots help sell mods, too.

    There are screenshots available on the pages in all those links except the argonian feet.
    Was harder than I thought to find a picture of them actually, but here is one:

    Be aware that these may not be the same feet as those in the previous link.
    These are made (or adjusted) by the same guy who makes the 'Argonian beautification' mod.
    Site here:
    http://www.drakeslair.net/category/oblivion-mods/scripted-argonian-feet

    He's working on making it so you can use boots with the legs.
    I'm not sure, but I think the mod I linked to previously either make you unable to wear boots, or you can use boots but it makes the legs revert to the mammal default all the races use.

    well um.. there's reign of fire for the ps2 ( yeah, lame old system) because you can play AS the dragon... but the catch is you also play as a human at points .. and it pretty muc htakes you back to the problem of having to slay them... *cries*

    Crocodile + protagonist = Dunno. First Croc was an okay game (aside from the loading sequences between every room), secret levels were insanely tough, but it's easy to tell that Croc is more or less an imitation of Mario 64.

    Final Fantasy XII has the bangaas, and most aren't portrayed as bad. Unfortunately you can't really play as one, which is my only major gripe with the game. I think it's the first time since FFV that all party members are human, and no, Fran doesn't count as not human. You do get to play as bangaas in the FF Tactics gameboy versions.

    The elder scrolls, Morrowind and Oblivion have Argonians (lizard people) (and Kajeits [sp?] cat people) as the race you can choose. Though its a well known game so that is probably no help. Except Lair for the PS3 where you can ride dragons Im also drawing a blank.

    This bugs me to, why are we almost always evil in games?

    Crappy? More like craptacular. It took fifty million bullets to kill one dragon! Not to mention, I played it on the gamecube so you can imagine how hard it was...

    Oh, almost forgot. Bioware is making a new game called Dragon Age. No real info on it yet, but generally they make good games so I have high hopes.
