    I personally welcome first person and I say that as a pathetic old man that stereotype has being highly resistant to change. Kids gotta learn to live a little, try new things, get out of their rut! :)

    Exactly!
    You would think that story/lore/characters/world/gameplay are the main selling points of the game, but no, apparently it's TPP...
    CDPR should just scrap all those things and just release an empty open world with nothing interesting to do, but with TPP. Because this is what makes the game great.

    Third person view can greatly enhance the visual impact of the scenes, same way it does in movies. If you do not care about it - does not mean that many other people also won't care or that developers should only listen to one group instead of providing an option for both ;-)

    Third person can be nice unless it's pushed upon you - and that is exactly what we see in most games. All these cutcenes where view suddenly switches to third person completely disregarding what camera setting you used before are very annoying. Also - at least for me - third person view COMPLETELY destroys immersion in the game.

    IMO, it's an artistic decision that the developers get to make, like the art style or level design--which players also don't have options to change. People who don't like a developer's artistic choices don't have to play ;)

    Artistic decision excuse only works for movies. In games you can allow for both choices, this is what the games are all about - letting players choose whatever they prefer. Unless this is a technical limitation, in which case they would have said that. I mean, they are already letting your character to be any gender or race, why not simply add some extra choice of having different character view?
    Anyway, there will most likely be a mod for enabling this after the game will be released.

    Haven't looked forward to a game this much in years. May it live up to the hype!

    It's a lot more work for CDPR to create the proper animations and camera angles. It's basically like directing a movie because you have to place the cameras, move them with the action, switch cameras at the right time. It IS a lot of extra work to support both. In development, art, production, debugging, etc...
