Dru Owen : I'm not trying to be rude, but I don't understand how anyone could ask for a truly immersive rpg (the entire purpose of this game) and then freak out about it being in first person. VR RPG and future sci fi have painted it like that for decades, and that's what this game is designed to expand on and pay an homage to. I know it's opinion, but at some point, you have to realize that preference shouldn't affect your expectations or thr reality of what would work in the game.

Taimoor Shah : If all the entitled brats shut up and sit down for a minute to think, they would actually understand why this game is FP. As the guy said in the interview, this isn't a wide open world game like the Witcher where you're walking through empty fields, this game relies on verticality, and narrow streetscapes, which absolutely would not work in a 3rd person perspective. How are you going to look up at the tall buildings when they're hidden by your characters ass when you try to look up? How are you going to see all the details of the vendors when you're walking through a street, when your perspective is looking down at them from above? I've played plenty of 3rd person RPG's and I would have loved all of them to be 1st person if I knew I was going to miss out on some details. And knowing the devs for this game, there will be lots of tiny and intricate details that will probably be missed if it was in 3rd person. Not to mention that the combat for this game relies on guns, which always excel in 1st person.

Tucker Austin : I don't care what the game's by CDPR...I'm gonna play it.

Mr Fister : Can't wait for this to get banned in Australia!

Blaž Bohinc : To all people hating on FPP - you're not using your frontal lobe very much, are you? Or listened to the interview? It doesn't make any sense to make it TPP because of how the world is made. The density, the play style, indoor fights - TPP would hurt gaming experience. Also - Destiny 2 is FPP and you see your character very often. And the guy said it's an RPG. You'll see your character in every conversation, transitions, skill usages.. not to mention mirrors, game menus. I mean.. honestly, you're just blindly hating on the game from a developer that proved itself to be the best we have in gaming world. If they made it FP, they have a very good reason to. Have a little trust in them, will you?

queelude9 : Great! I get to fully customize my character and never see it...

Night : CDPR has fostered enough good will within the gaming community to deserve giving them the benefit of the doubt, don't you all think? So how about instead of spewing hate and disappointment everywhere, you take a deep breath and wait to actually see and play the game? Personally, I don't give a damn whether it's FPS or TPS. I just want the game to be good and the perspective I play it from doesn't matter to me.

Selecko : I've never seen so many entitled manchildren complaining about first person view before. I'll let CDPR decide whether or not their game works best in first or third person. Also, a lot of the whining about needing it to be third person seems to come with the comment "Because we want to see the character we made and their clothing as we progress". Like... what is this? Do you want to play Barbie's Dress Up or do you want to play a game? Kudos to CDPR for aiming Cyberpunk where they think it needs to go to fit the style, theme and narrative of the game.

Überflip Tilapia : "We're a narrative driven company, first and foremost" <--- This is the most important thing he said, people complaining about something as trivial as the POV don't actually completely know what a western RPG is let alone how to even truly enjoy one. If something like that effects you THAT much then I pity your weak imagination.

Balloon Lvl1 : Comment Section: 95% about Cyberpunk 2077 being FPS 5% anything else

Michael H : I just wana see some freakin gameplay

Sir Stammsalot : So it's like a Deus Ex perspective, if that's the case take my goddamn money CDPR

Borch Tre Taccole : This comment section seems to be full of spoiled childrens. The game is not third person, so what? As a matter of fact, that's not a malus. You can't have everything you want, people.

OneTruePenguin ToRuleThemAll : All of you moaning about 1st person shut the hell up, if CDPR made that decision then it is the right one, they know what they are doing and they're trying to make us have the best possible experience. You will still be able to see your character in dialogues, item menu, and maybe while driving a car or some other activity. I'm 100% buying this game, CDPR take my money!

Close : Really glad it is first-person and not in 3rd person. 1st person only is much more immersive than the typical shallow depiction.

Valeri Martirosyan : Why are people complaining about a first person perspective he said that its nog gonna be a FPS its gonna be a RPG with FPS mechanics.....

. : I was worried that i could be Third Person perspective... It's a relief that it is First Person, now I'm buying it

bloodcorer : Well if you don't like the first person view you can go buy Anthem...

Miguel Ferrandis Perez : I loved that they went with thoose super cars with turbos as it seems on the back of the wheels, i mean like retro futuristic cars instead of flying cars, i prefer way more retrofuturistic, like 80's look rather than the new futuristic athmosphere.

Dankman : I 100 procent believe in CDPR with this project

A : the 1st person aspect makes this even better than i thought

Philboh8 : This will be sick. Regardless of camera


Rick Sanchez : character creation and first person shooter in open world game , these two factor are opposite of each other in a big way , i don't want to see my character in 3rd person only in cut scenes. so 80% percent of the game you cant see your self but you would be able to deeply customize your character lol don't defend it people.

Hardcore Panda : Still no gameplay, yet 10/10 from fanbois.

Koiden : How sensitive and entitled do you have to be to want to skip the game over it not having third person... I get it you have a preference, still devs made this choice for a reason and it could be very enjoyable. Edit: devs spent a decade making the game, let that sink in. If you don’t want to play it over TP your missing out.

Ben Shapiro : First Person Driving? Well I’m going to crash

madman2u : I don't get why so many people have a hard-on for third-person. I'm not against it but first persons usually help portray environments better. Rather than moving the camera to look around in third person, in first person you have to turn to what you want to look at. If they add a third person mode I hope it's something in the line with the cover system in the Deus Ex franchise.

Realmasterorder : PLESE Put A 3rd Person Camera OPTION in this game

Proggy Froggy : I did not picture this game in any other way than first person. Even if you had a 3rd person option, I'd still switch to 1st person, just like Elder Scrolls, Fallout. The game is built around 1st person so that's how it'll play best.


sʟᴀᴅᴇ ᴡɪʟsᴏɴ : Add 3rd person

binary1123 : First Person or not, let’s not be that kind of community please, CDPR hasn’t disappointed us with their games, let’s just wait til we can really get our hands on it to judge it properly

Haschwell : Why people so sensitive over a damn perspective? Ya'll little sissies can sit this one out. Have you guys seen the game? Have you played the game extensively? No? Then stfu? Maybe wait until you've actually seen the damn game before jumping to your silly conclusions. Fallout 4. Waited for a long time for it. Had option for 1st and 3rd person. Game ended up being a let down no matter what perspective you picked. CDPR just keep doing what you do. All im interested in is the product we end up getting whether its in 1st, 3rd or 85th person.

Iftimescu Vlad : Aww, the first person perspective just threw a bucket of ice water over me. :(

EvaUnitBrig : There is a HUGE difference between an fps and and rpg with fps combat. Its almost like none of you are old enough to have played system shock 2 or something...lmao not only will cyberpunk will be an rpg, it will have waaay deeper rpg mechanics and systems than Witcher 3. So please for the love of god, shut up and wait for this masterpiece.

Almer Reyhan : Do you guys realized there are games like borderlands or overwatch?? These games are fps but there are character customizations and we can still see our damn character in the game smh. Besides its still a first look, it can change when its officially launch.

14UnDeAd14 : You can feel that the game has been in development for 10 years... it is very rich and diverse, but adding a 3rd person will make it even better !

Daniel W : If I can't play in 3rd person I'm not interested

s l : All u people who are getting angry because of fp r missing out on what will be one of the best games.

Mook : First person is better for me. This is good news.

Jakaviusful : I love you CDPR. I respectively pass.

Gamers Threshold : I am not sure about first person.....but it's CD projekt red so I think I can trust them.....but still first person is a big disappointment for me

Eddie Designs : everything was great until he mentioned that it is on first person, it bores me to see only the weapon or the hands the whole game! u.u my cyberpunk dream came to an end! but excellent graphics!!

GluedTechDude : Deus Ex did fine as a FPS and being a RPG, so I'm not worried about this whatsoever. Can't wait to finally play this whenever it comes out (probably end of next year).

WhyNotEveryThing : Man I personally wanted it to be 3rd person. Imagine your character getting new gears and shit, u wanna feel that and stuff.

Stelio Macumbe : Unfortunately, I am not into first person. I will skip this one.

This is not a smurf account. : Customization and your characters look are a big part of this game needs to be third person. In games like destiny we are okay with first because the game is ONLINE with other real people and friends who SEE you and you show off your look that way. Why would I or anyone care about customizing their character to show it off to no one? It's MORE immersive in a single player game to let the player SEE their character.

Umar Hasan : If it's like Metal Gear Solid 5 where u can play in 3p but while zooming with a gun u can automatically switch to 1p will be the best

This is not a smurf account. : I'm honestly down for the game to be delayed again to add a third person option. I'm sure I'm not alone. Please cdpr listen to your fans!
