What type of shooter games do you prefer?
1st person where you see through the eyes of the person you’re controlling, e.g. RTCW, MoH, Unreal, etc.
3rd person where you see a camera view of the person you’re controlling, e.g. Max Payne, Tomb Raider, etc.
IMO I prefer 1st person. I don’t know what’s the deal with 3rd person games. They are hardly as immersive.
When I jump or fall from a high place in a 1st person game my stomach goes into a knot. When it happens to me in a 3rd person game its “Ho hum…”, big deal.
Same thing with getting ‘shocked’ in games. It’s easy to jump out of your seat when you get facehugged in AvP but if it happens to you in a 3rd person view you really don’t care.
Aiming is really whacked in 3rd person as well. The AI aims for you to some extent and it hardly takes the pinpoint accuracy you’d need to get headshots in 1st person games. Headshots are very rewarding
