I find in 3rd person I am quite detached from my character but in first person I get more of a sense of being them. It must be the whole "seeing it through the characters eyes" thing. Also in first person you have to creep up to a corner in a dungeon and peek around it. In 3rd person you can just swing the camera around the corner and get a good look.
