I've had to skip the last two, mainline RE games due to the 1st person perspective. I'm prone to vestibular migraines, and I've gotten one every single time I've played a 1st person game, so I just don't touch them. I really thought new, non-REmake games were going to be lost to me forever, so seeing this announcement has given me a lot of hope!

So, I'm curious; Are you all looking forward to it? Do you even care about it at all?

I only played through Village twice so I am looking forward to playing it again in third-person to get the rest of the achievements. I have no gripe with first-person games, but that type of experience isn't why I play Resident Evil and so it's always put me off. But I am excited at the prospect of this becoming the norm moving forward. Now if only they could get their sh*t together creatively and make the stories feel like Resident Evil again.

Yes, I am excited and it's definitely a start in the right direction. Turns out it wasn't 3rd person that made RE4-6 bad in retrospect but it's over the top action that now feels severely diluted because it appears the rest of the industry, in particular the action/shooter genre, has now surpassed them in terms of quality, leaving those RE titles looking ridiculous and extremely unfaithful to the series origins.

I voted No on this only because I think 1st person suited the game pretty well and realistically I probably will never play it in 3rd person. I totally get why others would prefer 3rd person but personally in this case, I will stick to 1st person.

For some reason it feels ”weird” to see Ethan in third person, especially after all those broken third person mods for RE7 that made him look like a rubber man when moving. Still excited, though, and very excited about Capcom possibly moving away from first person entirely in RE9.

I'm looking forward to it and will play it in third-person since they'll offer it but really, really excited? Nah, I would have been ok if they didn't offer it.

I don’t like first person and didn’t even buy Village for that reason so yes i’m happy they included third person
