True, while it is an RPG that can "be played any way" you lose a lot when playing 1st person. Why have so many armors and accessories for 1st person? If the game was meant to be 1st person there would be one suit of armor that you leveled up because you can't see it anyway. You would also only have one face, there is no need to create so many races and allow you to design your face because you wouldn't see any more than your hands.
Also, the game cuts to 3rd person so often in kill sequences and in beast/vampire form, why would it do this if they never thought you would want to see your character in action?
I dont know, man. IMO the kill cams were the perfect solution to the "i dont see my character enough" complaint, and i really dont see how anybody would prefer the gameplay in 3rd person. i sometimes use 3rd for sneaking around, but in combat (and i dont even want to talk about ranged) 3rd person seems so goddamned clunky. I DGAF how you play but dont make the claim that you lose immersion in 1st. that is not the case.

I've seriously got to be the most bipolar ***** when it comes to playing in 1st/3rd.

You are just plain wrong if you don't think this game was designed to be played primarily in first person. It's cool if you like to play in third person, but don't claim you are playing it the right way because a bunch of different games that have hardly anything in common with Elder Scrolls are in third person. Skyrim and this whole series come from the old school PC dungeon crawler, which were in first person.

I said it was the best way to play and I don't understand why people would play it in first person. Though I suppose with the limits of a mouse and keyboard I could see how 3rd person wouldn't work on PC.

Also, allow me to point out that while the previous elder scrolls series were in first person because the 3rd person mode was really bad, how many people do you know own a copy of oblivion? Before skyrim only niche players knew the elder scrolls existed, then skyrim comes out with a better 3rd person and suddenly there is a copy in every home.

Yea dude. Better 3rd person is definitely why Skyrim is more widely played.

None of your posts would even be a big deal if it didnt sound like you were trying to promote your 3rd person superiority. "Best way to play"? Not for the vast majority of people I know.

Just because your intellectual limitations wont allow you to understand why people have differences of opinion does not mean your opinion is the "best" one.

If you're claiming that the game was indeed made by the developers to be a primary 3rd person game, then I would love to see some proof of that claim. until then, can you kindly stop spewing mouth diarrhea?

Well, finished the Dawnguard questline a couple days ago. Started the vampire side of things shortly after.

I haven't played this character in a couple months, and I promptly figured out how hard a mage is to play on master. Turned that **** down to adept.

That character delves into atromancy and necromancy, but I was still running out of magicka and I have a base of 300, plus the necklace and ring I was wearing plus the master robes plus Morokei. Turned it back down for the time being.

I'm pretty sure everyone owns Skyrim because Oblivion was great (and played more than Morrowind) and then they promoted the **** out of Skyrim.

I want to think you're trolling with this third person bull****, but I'm worried you might be serious.

He has to be trolling. His claim is that third person is the how the game is made to be played, except on PC.

Problem is, the game was made to be played on PC.
