    Default 1st and 3rd Person perspective

    There's a good deal of games out there that incorporated these perspectives differently, and I figured it would be interesting to hear some of your opinions.

    Which do you prefer? Are there games were you feel one was inappropriately used when it should have been the other?

    How do you personally feel about what the goal of using one over the other is meant to achieve, and it's presentation pertaining to the experience?

    I find first person is great for horror and fps style games. Third person is better for the more action oriented games.

    I actually find third person games a lot more fun than first person, because of the action.

    The only real time multiplayer games I don't suck at are FPS, so I guess 1st person is my calling.
    I actually have a personal preference for 1st person anyway. Apart from being more realistic (Which I personally don't give a damn about so there's really no point mentioning it), it allows you to see things up close and personal, rather than percieving everything from a distance. You also don't get that rubish where suddenly you can't tell where you are because there is a solid object between you and the camera, and situations where you can't see what your doing because the camera can't move, because there are solid objects in the way. Basicly in 3rd person, opaque objects become an obstacle in themselves.

    3rd person is almost required if you play on console.
    1st person is almost required if you play on PC.

    It's got to do with controls. A controller will never offer the same sort of a precision even a cheap mouse does. Though, it goes the other way as well. Playing a game like GTA on keyboard+mouse is hopeless, as you only have the options of flooring it, or not flooring it with a keyboard, making driving so much more difficult.

    This pretty much. I mean it's not up to what one prefers in some games, it's what works best for that game type. I'd feel so weird playing a FPS in third person.

    I enjoy third person in almost all cases, even with shooters. It does depend on the game a bit, though.

    1st person is better when you need accurate aiming, such as in shooter games and the like.

    3rd person is better if you're playing a game with swords, moves, etc.

    So a game like Fallout is better in 1st person, and a game like DMC is better in 3rd person.

    First person games are way better IMO, but I like 3rd person from time to time as well, so what I do is, I play Oblivion and I scroll back, tadaaah, both first and 3rd person in one game. They should do that to all games.

    3rd person games should be limited to crime sims and even then only some of them. 1st person all the way!!!!!
