Somehow this thread brought an old GameCube game back to my memory: Geist. I have never played it, I know it got very mediocre ratings but did anybody of you actually played this game and how do you liked it?

I played it, still own it somewhere.

It had some ambitious and interesting ideas but was ultimately pretty poor; controls, framerate, and general gameplay were all pretty clunky.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I prefer third person by far. Shit I played over 200 hrs of fall out 3 entirely in it's wonky 3rd person view



Depends on the game really. It's about 50-50, though I do like the bit of added immersion of FPS games. Gears is one of my favorite series, yet Overwatch is also one of my favorite games.

Historically, I've always been opposed to playing as a floating gun or really any first person games that weren't in VR. Played a lot of them. At one point, I had more first person games in my library than anything else despite a preference for 3rd person. It kept me away from several games like Bioshock Infinite, Fallout series, and Skyrim (until I leaned there was a 3rd person mode).

Anyway, I prefer 3rd person everything.

Did you play the original Bioshock ? plus don't confuse 3rd person with threesome .

😂 I haven't been that person since late 2007.

Yeah, I actually got BioShock on day one in 2007 along with Mass Effect and Mario Galaxy. Never finished Bioshock but I bought the collection a couple of years ago. Hopefully I can play through all three one day soon.

I'd go with FPS. Goldeneye and Doom are a lot of fun.

I know it's not that big of a deal but I just checked. I did get Bioshock on day one but when I got those three games, it was actually the original Assassin's Creed that I got instead of Bioshock. I think I got BioShock on its own.

I'm old and my memory is failing me!

Not only are you old, you now confess to telling big fat porky pies, why for god sake why! you know I'm paranoid and have trust issues.

Now the voices in my head are arguing about whether you are Q or Trump now do you see what harming lying does to the ones you love like me.



Usually first person, but it coul also be dependant on the game. I like both styles, but I find first person more immersive, and third person fits arcade style games I play.

Like Saints Row/GTA/gears I'd always prefer in third person, but games like Cyberpunk, Metro I'd always want in first person, but not games like Resident Evil (which is why I've skipped 7 and will skip 8).



I like both

re7 was amazing and hilarious
while re4 was a masterpiece,

resident evil folks taking advantage of both cameraS!
