Am I the only one praying for an optional first-person mode?

I tried out a few different first-person mods when I played GTA IV on the PC at a friends house, and it gave the game an entirely different playstyle and feel. The city also seemed a lot larger and cooler.

Sure, the first-person mods were a little buggy and glitched sometimes, but they were freaking fun. So am I the only one hoping that Rockstar puts an official, non-buggy first-person mode in from the beginning so we have the option of playing in first-person?

I played that mod too. It would be neat if they made it so you could switch perspectives in gameplay like in Skyrim, GTA IV had a button that let you adjust camera distance so it's not that far off

Gta is third person and was always meant to be. I am playing it the way it was intended even if there is a first person mode. Third person is just better for GTA; if you were able to switch it like Skyrim, one or the other would suffer, usually the third person. If third person stayed how it was and you went into first,the camera would swing all over the place, but if they did what the Elder Scrolls did, the third person must compensate for the way first person controls. R* makes the most highly polished third person of any gaming company; they know if a game is going to be in all third person, well it better damn well look good. Maybe they would have an option for that, but I think that would be pretty stupid. It just isn't Rockstar to me. If you want fp, leave it to the modders. They did it with the last game, and they'll do it with this one. I really don't want Rockstar to take a billion more years making a first person option. I just want the best third person experience ever!

I'm not praying for it, but in fairness, I don't pray for anything. It would be a nice feature though. I think it'd make driving cars (seeing the interior and all) more appealing. You would see a living city all around you.

Doubt it'll be implemented though. I couldn't see Rockstar throwing in a first person perspective and hooker action at the same time without running risk of an Adult Only rating. At that point, it isn't even worth it, not because of the age restriction, but because too many countries would ban it. Those bans dig into profit margins.

Call of duty and gta should not mix!

I don't need first person. Instead I hope they dump the aim assist from RDR and Max Payne 3 and actually make the free aim more responsive.

In Skyrim you can switch in and out of third and first person by simply pressing a button, in GTA 4 there was a button for switching the camera between Far away, Medium and over the shoulder. So it isn't that far off...

Yes you are the only one. It would not be Grand Theft Auto if it were in first person!

jones says: do know that GTA IV was not the first GTA to have perspective changes. GTA 3 had more than three, it even gave you an old school overhead perspective AND you could look around with the c-stick in first person. By San Andreas they had it down to three camera perspectives, and IV kept it the same. They could have done first person a long time ago if they had wanted...but clearly Rockstar is going for less camera angles, if anything.

Why don't you get Far Cry 3 instead? It's in first person.

I just checked that out, meh. Looks like a rehashed Just Cause 2.

GTA 5 First person o_O? If it aint Broke don't fix it. GTA DO NOT need first person view that would suck if they ever even thought about it. But with all these Intense graphics that they are inputting in games now, first person might surprisingly look amazing.... anything is possible when it comes to gaming so to those saying Rockstar will never do such thing; unless you work for them then keep an open mind!

For GTA, third person perspective is the best. Especially when you're creating some real hardcore mayhem and you have to become real handy with the camera. But I think we SHOULD have the option to switch to first person. You know, the little things are always nice.

Anyone here play Fallout 3 or New Vegas? It can be done with GTA, first person that is.

And third person in the same game too.

It probably could be done well, but i doubt Rockstar would do it, they don't make first person games, and it wouldn't be necessary. I think first person driving has merits but third person plays better for the city open world aspects. Now, i would be very happy if they brought back the top down camera from GTA 3, as that made it play like the originals.

There was probably a reason why it was only a mod.

have not played the mod but this concept sounds awesome. Even though its not really their style, the thought is very entertaining. Also what ever happened to the oldschool view like in gta 3? It kinda went away after GTA San An. Even though the view was just as difficult as to play in cinematic view it was fun and made it harder for friends to hog the controller for too long when taking turns.
