If I play in third person I feel disconnected from my character. I treat them differently than if I am in first person. In first person I am getting hit or I fall down, in third person some dude gets hit or falls down and I don't care as much. Fighting melee in first person is more difficult but I find more rewarding. In first person you can't see what is attacking you from behind or sneaking up for the backstab, it makes for tense combat.

I wonder what happened to second person?
