Historically, the Elder Scrolls had been a first person game. Sure, sometimes you can go to a third person mode, but the game is designed around first person, so the only thing third person is good for is checking out your cool new armor. Otherwise you pretty much stick to first person.
So when the news broke that Elder Scrolls Online would be third person, people were perturbed. That’s not how it was before! Ignore the fact that being a MMO the third person mode is almost certainly more useful than first person, when I played Oblivion I was in first person, so I damn well better get that first person again. For reasons!
Well good news irrational person I invented as a straw man. First person well be a thing. You are fine. The game is still designed primarily as a third person game, so there will be area effects that you’ll not be able to use correctly, since you can’t see behind you, and the combat is supposed to be the same World of Warcraft “wait until it refreshes” gameplay, so the game will target for you, and the point of playing first person is moot. But at a glance it will resemble the old games, so totally worth it!
