The other side of the FPS games (which would be in 3rd Person)

Well folks, today I found several videos that show FPS games, played in 3rd person, and I thought of making a selection of videos, showing it to you. Below you can see the videos with the normal version and one with the transformed version. (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Crysis, Mirror's Edge, PC, Portal 2, PS2, PS3, Xbox, Xbox 360)

I've always found the choice, cheat or command to go into third person on FPS games really appealing. I know a few games support it as an option, I remember that the Unreal Tournament and Championship series supported this and Serious Sam made it an option right at the beginning.

As long as the textures and scale of objects looks fine, most FPS should be developed with the option to change to third person. I know why developers don't do this, because quite simply, that would require a lot of animation and the Field Of View may make the character disproportionate to the rest of the scene.

I remember when Ratchet and Clank 3 had an unlockable option to play the game in first person, that was weird as it would make platforming a little more difficult. I often wish that Insomniac kept that in the later games.

Maybe next gen we should have the option to do this in most singleplayer games and I don't just mean crouching behind cover.

Looking at this, I would like to play Doom 3 in third person, I don't know why, but I never really thought about it. But I've always found that Dead Space was basically Doom 3 in third person and I guess that video proves it.
