I always play Burnout with the in car viewpoint.

Sure its a little harder to see whats coming up and but the extra speed rush is just too enticing for me to resist.

Plus I actually like the ability of not being able to see both cars in a bump and grind battle - adds to the excitement.


Friends usually go with the 3rd person view.

i always play in 2nd person (why is it called 3rd person? where's the second person then huh?)
except for in stuntruns, when i spin into the street, and the camera decides to face the wrong way. then i quickly go to first person to see where i'm going next and avoid a head-on collision with some random traffic or chaser.

First person and third person comes directly from linguistics, friend as i'm sure you know.

First person refers to something firsthand experience, as if its you.
Third person refers to something as if you're someone else, or at least looking at something from another's perspective.

As for Second person refers to you as if its someone telling you what to do (thus couldnt be applied to a videogame, unless as an instruction part of it). basically, the best way to describe it is instruction manuals. "You must now set your hands on fire-" etc etc.

So in a game, it would just be like an unplayable demo XD

I think you should have something that says "Or don't care". I fall into that region.

The cars in burnout just look so great, I have to use 3rd person! Also it's harder for me to see my surroundings in 1st.

I often switch to 1st person in online races, to better see and avoid incoming traffic.

3rd person, since I love seeing my beautiful vehicle and I get more vision of my surroundings. I only occasionally go to 1st person for some XHR multi-barrel roll fun...
