It really doesn't translate well as a first-person game, but the in-car view wasn't actually terrible. I could see it being usable enough, except for the fact you'll be missing out on the game graphically. I hope Grand Theft Auto remains a third-person series,
but I don't think I'd mind a first-person option in it. It might make you experience the game a little differently, but it might also leave it feeling like a standard FPS game in an open world.
