Since devs officially confirmed modding support from the start i'm pretty sure we wouldn't have to wait too long for the 3rd person view mod, i probably hold myself off playing the game until the said mod comes out because VTMB was always a 3rd person view game for me, i never played it in 1st person.

Ditto that for me.  It shouldn't have to be modded in, though.

You ever used firearms ? It's a helluva lot more difficult to shoot in 3rd person.

What the hell is Honey Badger ? And it was pretty tough to aim in Resident Evil 4. Good game though.

Resident Evil 4 is probably my favorite Resident Evil. I did just beat the new RE2 six times in a row over the course of about two weeks despite normally being a play-once-and-never-again kinda guy with most games I get (if they're worthy enough to even merit my time for a single completion). It plays like RE4 did in regard to the shooting, except you can move while aiming (albeit slowly).

It shouldn't have to be modded in, though.

It could be very hard to be modded in anyway, because as with Bloodlines' first person melee mode it's probably easy to change the camera, but if there are no suitable models and animations, this will be nothing that a modder can recreate in the quality of the original unless there is a trick to get it from other models...

I would like RE4 more........ if it had a story.

Sorry, had to be said ! My favorite so far is still RE2.

RE4 is an undeniable influence in modern third person shooters though. There's absolutely no getting around any of that.

I've never had a problem with it.  Didn't know or care that it could be switched to first person and I always used firearms.

RE4 has a story. Not liking it doesn't mean it doesn't have one. And RE2's story pacing is atrocious. Plot doesn't come up until the lab, unless you count the notes you read, most of which are just generic information NOT about the infection and creepy goings on.

It could work for this game since we can see our character at some points. It also worked in Mirror's Edge, which is a first person game where a third person mode was implemented by players not by the devs.
Although it's not the greatest and a little wonky, it's better than nothing at all I guess lol
Personally, I would prefer having the option. I used it a lot in bloodlines, but it's not game changing.

If anyone here would know it'd be you, but given that there are other vampire NPCs in the game that walk/run/shoot/melee/use disciplines, shouldn't they have basically all of the required animations, and *then* some (due to needing to be seen speaking and interacting with the world by the player)?

This is what I meant using a trick to get them, but while we know how to do that with Bloodlines models, I don't know if this is as easy with Unreal engine models...

I hope they don't add 3rd person, just to annoy people who make retarded petitions.

Can't you just be glad that after 15 years this is game is happening?

I don't like 1st person games as well, but games like Dying Light have showed me how awesome 1st person can be if done properly.
