Lefali replied to Ommamar's topic in The Outer Worlds: General Discussion (NO SPOILERS)I would be curious if it would make the game sells more of copies. But this is what is wrong in gaming industry - all the agencies of people saying how games should be according to them, while they do all they can to destroy it for others - like saying how it would be worse shooter or how expensive it would be. This game is not a good shooter anyway, never could have been, so it could be atleast accessable to players who were the target audience of such game. And it could be expensive before they got funded by Microsoft, but now... But even before it would still be possible with DLC - if players are willing to pay for it, why not let them? Maybe they really didn't have time and maybe there is not enough of players for 3rd person view who would pay for it - I don't know, after all statistically majority of players will accept both. And even such great games like Greedfall or Vampyre were bashed down for not being perfect and didn't sell many copies. But I'm not sure if it is not better to simply accept that - AAA games make standard now and AA games will never reach it, so you could atleast make the game for people who would enjoy them? And a lot of RPG players do like to see their character. And a lot of players still don't care about perfect skin in realistic graphics but about good movement, content and aestetics. And even the first Vampire the Masquarade managed to have perfect 3rd person view. For some reason I feel as well that it is not going to happen, so gbye Outerworlds, Vampire the Masquarade2, Cyberpunk and all the other RPG games made for RPG players who will not play it.
I don't know how much important it will be in this game - if it will not be open world, but generally it is important for RPG players to have 3rd person - not only because of sickness or like in my case - I have FOV 180, so telling me I should be immersed in FTP is like running around with a helmet half blind feeling "immersed", but also - first person is for players who play themselves, but 3rd person is for players who play someone else and by seeing their avatar running around they can roleplay that character better - they are immersed in that character or something. Also players can be desperate already - Kingdom come was in first person, Cyberpunk will be in first person, all kind of small / indie games like Bards tale IV are in first person, now they are used from Bethesda games on 3rd person so they did expect to have the same with Obsidian. So I hope if the game will be successful and players will still want that, I hope for some enhanced edition.
