Do you prefer first-person gameplay or third-person gameplay?

I prefer third-person because I can actually see the character I'm playing as, and I get a better perception of where I am or what's going on around me.

First-person does give you more immersion, but I feel that it works better if you don't really care that much about what your character looks like.

Which perspective do you prefer in gaming?



Some days I just blow up.

Depends on the game; its a matter of choosing the right tool for the right job.

I wouldn't want to play Breath of the Wild in first person, but at the same time, making Metroid Prime third person would greatly diminish the claustrophobic immersion that defines the experience.

I will say though that for shooters, I usually prefer first person. I have enjoyed TPS games like Gears of War and Splatoon, but most of my favourite shooters are FPS.



Different games, different takes I guess, but I admitedly prefer games where I can see my character instead of the 1st person view :)

3rd person, by a mile!



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Third person whenever possible. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy first person games and feel some games wouldn't actually work or feel right in third person (Doom for example), but yeah, if given a choice I'll always go third person.

Heck, since everyone else is voting third, I'll vote first, as a protest vote against this current thing of "not playing it if it's first person, I have to see my character" (as seen with Cybperpunk 2077's reveal) which I personally think is tied a little too closely to companies pushing cosmetic microtransactions and lootbox skins.



There should have been an either in the poll.

I also quite like those games that allow you to change your ingame viewpoint.



I voted first-person, but I really just like whatever perspective is right for the game. With that said, I greatly prefer shooters to be first-person.



Depends as I enjoy both. I tend to lean toward 3rd person however.

I prefer first person but am open to third person view ...
