Not voting... It depends entirely on the genre and the way the game plays.

RPGs, I hate first person, shooters I don't love third person... Mixed games with shooting but good hand to hand as well better suits third person IMO... also prefer racing games in third person as well.

That gives me an idea... I'm going to make a game titled First Person Fighter©

3rd person,I do wish some games experimented more in fp with open world. Far cry is the only game I enjoy that does FP in a open world.
Xbox one, PS3, Wii
Play for the games not the evil corporation, they're all evil in the end.

You would think that a better connection to the character would be made in first person since you're playing the game from literally their point of view, but in every circumstance (especially where the character is of my creation such as an RPG), I connect more in third person.

Also, as a consequence of gameplay, I like wider field of view.....virtually giving a bit better peripheral vision.

Third person. Something about first person that I just don't care for. Kept me from enjoying Dishonored. And I love stealth games.

3rd... but for some reason developers are gung ho about 1st person games... Titantfall would have been a must buy for me if it was 3rd person

3rd person is stupid. The camera angles always suck, and your own character/weapon is always blocking your view.
Xbox One dis-Kinected 6/9/14. Let that be a lesson to people. Vote with your wallet.

Depends on the game.

I like both but prefer TP because it holds better storytelling potential. FP story telling feels awkward.
