optional 3rd person mode?

#1harvthamarvPosted 7/23/2010 6:49:24 AM
I know this would make matchmaking incredibly unfair, so keep it out of matchmaking.

But I'd quite like to see an option for 3rd person mode for custom games.
Its not an unreasonable request, seeing as how much customisation we can put into our spartans.
it would be nice to be able to see our customised characters a bit more.

Am I the only one who would like this?
And would it be difficult to implement?

No.

This isn't CoD.

But I'm pretty sure you go 3rd person when you pick up a turret or whatever in H3.

Thats just my point.
If it goes into 3rd person with turrets.
It wouldnt be hard to implement anyway right?

And just because CoD did it doesnt mean Halo is ripping off of it.
Some people just prefer a third person perspective sometimes, myself being one of them.

tbh, I hope not. It would just make too many playlists and then people would be all over the place.

And anyway, people cheat with 3rd person by looking around corners. It's just all around cheap.

How would it make too many playlists? One more playlist for 3rd person gaming isn't a bad thing.

His first two lines address his opinion on having it in Matchmaking.

"I know this would make matchmaking incredibly unfair, so keep it out of matchmaking.

Everyone's reasoning is ruining matchmaking or play list problems. I don't see why it couldn't be implemented in customs for those who would enjoy using it. I prefer First-person and would honestly never use it, but having the option there for people would be great. The level of customization is already fantastic, and I look forward to it, but extra options here and there do not hurt when it's just that: an option.

No, im sorry, this is a FPS.

I hate 3rd person, like someone said its just cheating and looking around.

Besides you can cap vid in 3rd person mode, so atleast you get that.

I see zero reason this could not be implemented for custom games. As you said, not in matchmaking. But they already have the third person view for turrets, I seriously doubt it would be very difficult to implement into custom games.

It also has some of the most creative characters ever thought of IMO.: Zarconi, in reference to Naruto.
