First Person or Third Person

Personally I'm a fan of first person view in any game simply because I feel more immersed in my overall environment.

Of course there are third person games I've played that break this rule and I don't feel could have been done any better if they were in first person view such as Blade of Darkness, Max Payne, GTA IV, and Mass Effect 2.

Which view do you prefer to play in and why?

Most people have no preference.

It really depends on the mechanics of the game.

I prefer first-person. Third person view is distracting to me and clutters up my view but I also feel disconnected to the environment in the game. A first-person view helps 'bring me in' more than a third-person view could and makes for walking around and looking at things more natural.

I'm not sure how you can say that to be perfectly honest?

Most gamers I know have very clear preferences as to what they like when gaming not only limited to view but game style, mechanics, graphics, framerates, story, immersion, etc.

First person for me.

My first game in Wolfenstien 3D and that is the reason I fell in love with FPS games. Almost 70% of my game collections are all FPS.
