Seriously, I have loved the Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six series since they began... mainly because they nailed the first person genre. So now they decide to go THIRD PERSON? Haters gonna hate, and yes, I'm a third person hater. I've only just found this out
because I wanted to miss out on any spoilers... looks like the first GR title I will not be getting on pre-order.
It's the same as Red Faction... RF1 and 2 were first person shooters but then on console they made it third person and wasn't half as much fun.
One of the main reason I hate third person is that the camera pretty much always screws up. Go near a wall and the view shoots all over the damned place. The second and more important reason I hate third person is that your body blocks the view and hides
the enemy from you. OK it can look cool but I don't want to look at my back all the damned time. If god had meant us to play third person he would have stuck our eyeballs on stalks behind our head.
Third and last reason I hate third person is that it ruins immersion... as in totally ruins it. It's like having an out of body experience. Third person is OK in RPGs but is hopeless in shooters.
God, I'm peed off now... looks like a rent only and hope that the next COD will do the Future Soldier thing better... at least it's not IW there to eff it up and it actually IS a first person shooter. Third Person Shooters can rot in hell for all I care.
