In regards to high/low fantasy, I've found that as I get older, I want to play Historical Fiction type games. I've also found that I want to play 'genetically similar' characters. I'm genetically Italian/Spanish...when playing TROS I like a Xanarian character. Don't know why...I also tend to go for more 'academic' characters (I have a PhD) with some maritime background (I'm a marine ecologist)...I have trouble identifying with other types...a bit wierd...but there you have it...

I've played with people whose RPG characters are like that. "Oh, you've rolled up another elven wizard..." I would also say that the longer a character is played the more that character is brought into line with a specific aspect of the player's personality. Very few gamers are convincing in their portrayal of someone that is nothing like them. A classic example is playing a character of the opposite gender.
