Resident Evil Fans Discuss Whether They Prefer First Or Third Person

Players have long debated the merits of third-person as opposed to first-person perspective in games and the topic has recently resurfaced on Reddit, this time concerning the long running Resident Evil series. The discussion so far has generated somewhat heated opinions from users on both sides of the argument.

Resident Evil has a long history of using both perspectives, with some entries in the series like Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 offering players a third-person view, while others like Resident Evil 7 provided players with a first-person perspective. Some fans believe third-person allows for better visibility and control over the character, while others believe that first-person immerses you more deeply into the game's atmosphere.

Third always

It's what it's always been and how it's meant to be played whether it's fixed camera angles or over the shoulder.

There was a time when I would have agreed but if you've got a vr setup the 1st person RE's are on another level.

That being said, they can both exist because they're both fantastic.

Exactly. If there was no VR version available or possible I’d say 3rd person. But because of the extreme heightened immersion, VR trounces the flat screen version, so 1st person please.

They should have the option to have both going forward imo. But I do prefer third person view

I love both and the new mainline RE games should stay in first person for at lest one more game that’s why i hated that Capcom for some reason added third person in RE8 .. like why ? What was the point ? It just lost what made the new games unique and different. Re7 is a gem and already such a classic, it’s RE1 of this generation or well the prevous generation i guess i should say and RE8 is bonkers and so fun. Such great games.

First person. It just ramps up the intensity for me

Why anyone would pay that to play something on a phone is beyond me.

Because people may want to play the game and not everybody has a dedicated console. Give it around seven years when everyone in India or the African nations has a phone that can run games like these and then publishers will be laughing.

The defunct console manufacturers like Xbox and PlayStation not so much.

If they have interest in a game that requires this much dedication, chances are they have a console.

Do you even know what the word defunct even means?

No longer existing or functioning.

Something like a Betamax, laserdisc, VHS, rotary phone, 8 track those are defunct. A company that is no longer around is defunct.

Xbox and Playstation still seem to be existing and functioning to me.

You also have to remember some parts of Africa and India people are poor so getting an iphone no matter what number it is would be a luxury. And most likely sold off to feed themselves or their family. Gaming in some parts of the world is a luxury whether a console or on a crappy cellphone. Owning a cellphone is also a luxury in some parts of the world as well.

So the average mobile gamer has a controller?
