Third person is nice so you can check how your character looks, but the default third person view in for example Fallout: NV is terrible imo, to me if feels like the character is just blocking the view.

Third person is nice when it gives you an advantage (if you can zoom out really far), but it also breaks immersion in many ways and can kill moments of surprise.
