yes especially when you can switch from shooting to a sword flawlessly like in warhammer 40k

I generally prefer TPS over FPS but I enjoy the the good FPS now and again like Metroid Prime

Call of Duty is a guilty pleasure I admit though, because while they are not considered that good by most of the internet, i enjoy them for what they are, even if they could be better
Chapter 7, that's all you need to say to a Valkyria fan, they'll know what you mean-Celestial Damnation (see quote)
It depends on the game obviously, but I tend to enjoy more FPS than TPS. I believe this is due mostly to the fact that TPS need to factor in character control, environmental interaction, more advanced cover systems, ect whereas FPS can just focus on shooting mechanics. I know "I like them more because they are overall harder to **** up" is pretty crappy reasoning, but it's true. I'm less likely to get frustrated and quit a FPS than TPS.

Barring the "Shooter" part...I play mostly Third-Person games but I do love a good First-Person game too.

The "camera with a gun" comment is funny TC. A couple people I know refuse to play TP games because they feel as though they are watching someone else's story instead of feeling like they are the character.
Playing - Borderlands 2, Far Cry 3, Vanquish, MGS HD Col, Resonance of Fate, Monster Hunter FU, Shadows of the Damned, Valkyria Chronicles

Mouse = fps
Analog = tps

That's just what feels comfortable to me but I don't knock a game for being one way or the other.

I prefer TPS to FPS. In fact I normally don't play any game in first person view because of the restricted view sort of like a tunnel vision.

IDK if there is any FPS supports 3 monitors that allows player to see not only what's straight ahead, but also what's coming their way on both sides.

Ideally, the perfect FPS to me is the one that supports a 360 degree (or at least 180 degree) circular monitor that surround the players on all sides. Nothing like this currently exists in the market, probably only in R&D departments of screens manufacturers.

Old TPS, maybe, but not modern ones that all seem to have taken at least something from Gears of War. No cover and ability to move fast and strafe, that's what I want.

Then again I could say almost the the same for FPS...nevermind lol. Let's just say I like them equally, just not keen on modern game design in either genre.
