Deus Ex and Bloodlines played well in first person, too. I highly doubt it'll make it into this game, but really, as long as the battle system works well from that perspective I don't have any problem with it being included.
I'm old and grew up playing first person, and don't ever want to again, unless, of course, it's a shooter. For a female gamer trying to rp a pair of man's hairy arms is just ridiculous. I want to see my whole character, not a pair of arms. Hopefully Skyrim will have a decent third person camera, Oblivion left alot to be desired, even if you got the mod working correctly.
