Destiny, a shooter from the creators of the franchise that made first person shooters a mainstream affair, was originally conceived as a third-person game.
i would've preferred it to be third person.
I think a multi-plat halo is alright, now I won't need to buy an X1.
I am cool with it as an FPS. We won't lose out since The Division is a TPS open world.
I complete agree, third person is the way to go.
Such a shame it changed into a fps... :/
Yea, an option to switch would be nice at least, they kind of alienate some people this way :/ I read this "We wanted to make a kick-ass action game, and we decided first-person was the right place to do that.” as Activision forcing them to do first person only since it's the "hot" thing right now, but that's just me being paranoid...right?
@BiggCMan Yep, it's just you being paranoid. Acitivision can't touch Bungie's IPs or tell them what to do with them. It's in their contract.
Kind of like how Halo started as a TPS but then changed to a FPS later in the development cycle.
I would have liked that, too.
They should have added the option to play in both like the Elder Scrolls and Fallout games.
It would be an amazing if you have a option to change it from FPS to Third Person
Same here. I always seem to run into stuff I can't see so stop moving before I get shot in FPS games. Also seems better for an MMO where you can make your own character to actually be able to see your character while playing.
i just cant see the appeal of playing an entire game as a crosshair :( TPS would do it for me. (RPG nerd here, sorry if i ruffled your virtual feathers with my virtual penis :) )
^this I used to really enjoy fps's but got tired at looking at just a gun and crosshair the entire time. I don't understand why you would spend all this time and energy on character personalization and only other players can see it. I don't give a damn about how others see my character but I care greatly that I can. I thought Brink had great character personalization but in the end it wasn't worth changing your gear as you couldn't see the change. I won't be buying any fps's anytime soon so I hope more devs realize there is a huge market for tps's as well and not everyone wants to run around as a gun on screen.
I also much prefer third person games.
i would give it a try with third person. I hate ego-shooters
3rd person Halo still alluding me :(
Well its Bungie so they probably felt more comfortable making a FPS and in doing so deliver a better experience.
if the gameplay was like gears of war then 3rd person would have been sweer
I prefer 3rd person games. But didn't Bungie say you could switch between first and third person a while ago?
I'm still happy with FPS, but it's a shame with all the incredible looking armor you'll be picking up not to be able to see it in action more. With Halo, you knew what you looked like and it never changed. But with Destiny you're going to be upgrading and updating your armor and then...oh, there's my gun.
This. They seem to be putting much effort into the personalization of your characters, only to lock you to first person.
i wish it was 3rd person...i really hate FPS
Would have been better as a 3rd person title... I am not really a fan of FPSs.
Wish I was more excited about this game...I'm just...not...
Should of being able to change ingame and play to which with you prefer, got the 3rd and 1st person shooter people in one go. Looking foward to it anyways, its one of the reasons I brought my ps4.
I use to be all FPS and hated TPS. But in the last few years ive really been enjoying TPS games. I think the game would work great as a TPS. Especially if they did a really good cover system. Something like the division. The more I see of that game makes it unbearable to wait. I want it now
