Bump! 3rd person must be a ton of work with animations and clipping and all sort of things that aren't easy, but as a big Obsidian and RPG fan, I think its important for many reasons:
1) Accessibility- All though not always, I sometimes get motion sick and dizzy in first person view. I have two friends who wont play first person games because it affects them so badly
2) Role Playing- Seeing our character visually represented and able to express their personality / idenity through their appearance is extremely core to RPG's in my opinion.
I have faith in Obsidian and am still extremely excited for this game no matter what, hopefully hearing enough people express interest in the option for 3rd person can encourage them to reconsider it! <3
