1st person GTA?

The footage in the second trailer with the in-car first-person view made me think (it took a long time, I know, but I always depend on irregular flashes of insight). Why would the 1st person view only be used when driving a vehicle? Do you think there might be a chance that you could go 1st person when Niko is on foot? We haven't seen any on foot gameplay yet, so...would we have the choice or would they stick to the original 3rd person view only?

Probably won't happen, but I always had hoped they'd have a first person view in GTA, I'd love it personally.

It was most likely a cut scene we seen.

Only first person thing I know of in-game is sniping and when you are being driven somewhere inside a taxi.

I really don't see the point, the game wouldn't work well as a first person.

Yeah I could see it being too complicated, cause you can't see around you, what you have to move around, I think it would be a big problem imo.

There's always been 1st person view while driving, essentially a bumper view but still 1st person. As for on foot I'd vote no thanks, I don't like 1st person games so much. Plus as Kwanza said, it wouldn't work too well considering Niko will be doing things like climbing telephone poles and jumping between building tops and grabbing ledges etc, these sort of acrobatic things are easier in a 3rd person view.

I also vote no on the 3rd person. I agree with emphysema when he says that you can't look around. it makes it non-GTA-ish. Since 3, GTA has been 3rd person, and I can't see the game in anything other than that. If there was a 1st and 3rd person option, that would be nice, though, for the people that would like 1st person

First-Person View has been in all the PS2 GTA Games so far, you just have to use the select button in a car or plane and you would get that view which is most likely to return in GTA IV.

I was thinking a few days ago about something, I don't think they would add it but it was just a though I had. In the past GTA's when you were on foot, you could use the select button to get different views. I was thinking that maybe you could get this view in IV as well as the overhead view that you could get in GTA III.

Doubt that would happen but I was just thinking about it...

I was convinced that the in-car view we saw in the second trailer was actual gameplay (I still am actually). I don't think they'd leave the 3rd person either, I just pointed out the option of adding a 1st person. The main difference with the bumper view we've seen before is that this time, we will see everything through the eyes of the caracter.

Would be handy to see little details that you cant see in the normal 3rd person view.

I hope they pull some stuff like in oblivion, where you can have the choice to do it either way. Of course though it is gta, so i don't want the "default" view to be first person.

Yeah.. everyone here is saying "no first person it'd be too hard to play" but we're talking about it being an option... not something that the entire game is. I'd love to have first person as an option.
