Destiny Would Be An Amazing Third Person Shooter

But there is one thing I felt could make Destiny better...That thing being the ability to play from 3rd person" (Destiny, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I would really enjoy just walking around in 3rd person, even if it's basic like in Fallout.

Yup, Beth games may have some poor animations for us to look at but at least we have to option to look.

When traveling it's how I run around. It's just more fun.

Thats probably the only reason I wont be playing this game, 1st person view doesnt feel right for me.

That would be amazing! Like how Defiance plays or even like Firefall! Tho i can see why they would go 1st person as they are the bringers of Halo and the like :P

I never played Defiance, it any good?

And yeah I can see why they chose FPS, but I like my options!
Jacktrauma  +   435d ago
yeah its not too bad. It flows nice and has a lot of freedom. I wouldn't say its completely sandbox but you have your options as well. Graphics are on par with other free to plays at its release and the story goes hand in hand with the TV show so all in all its a nice companion to the show if not a good offering for an MMO gamer.

This is something I thought of while playing, but I ultimately don't mind that much. When you're fighting enemies you don't want to admire your character, you wanna crush some fallen. If you really want to, you can just hop on your sparrow and look at him.

Naw, son...

If it was 3rd person, it would be an easy pass for me...

For me, is the other way around. I'll get it eventually, but right now? No rush, no hype. Not a fan of first peron.

when i was playing i was thinking, this would look nice in 3rd person. i was happy the tower was in third person at least.
KingKelloggTheWH  +   435d ago
Same here,and really it's not like the option would hurt anyone.
HacSawJimThugin  +   435d ago
Options are beautiful.

If only all games gave us camera view options like in Skyrim..

I was saying the same thing after running around the Tower after a while.

TPS just doesn't work in a competitive scenario IMO, the ability to camp behind a wall and still have complete 360 degree view just encourages camping.
Tdmd  +   435d ago
I remember it working beautifully in Metal Gear Online (my favorite online shooter from past gen).
TheSaint  +   434d ago
PSat gens it did work because camping wasn't as prevalent as it is these days, people played with a modicum of class back then. Not so much anymore.

It would be great if it had the option to change in and out of 1st and 3rd person, i would probably use 3rd for just travelling and then when combat starts i would switch into 1st but that's just my opinion.
KingKelloggTheWH  +   435d ago
I would probably do exactly the same thing.
