I most definitely prefer the choice between 1st and 3rd at all times. I think I play with them equally - and for different reasons. I tend to go 1st person when I first enter a new area/town/dungeon - to really immerse myself into the experience. But when approaching a situation in a tactical sense, I almost always go to 3rd person - even if it does feel like cheating sometimes.
Also, I like to admire my character as he upgrades his gear and gets new moves and stuff - just as a reward for the time I've spent developing him. 3rd person is pretty vital to that sensation.
For combat, it really depends on what KIND of combat. Ranged combat tends to lean itself to first person best - and melee is typically better in 3rd person - but it all depends. If I'm figting a single opponent, I rarely feel like I need to look at my surroundings - but if I'm fighting multiple opponents, the more I can see - the better.
So, give us both for pity's sake.
