Yes, Maylander expresses my experience as well. I find there to be something so wholly unnatural about the first person perspective while travelling through an environment that it is a big contributor to breaking the fourth wall for me. It's more like a horse wearing blinkers during a horserace than a human wandering around an environment.

I saw a clip of Daggerfall on YouTube once after someone posted it somewhere and at one point the player character was running through a town/village with their sword drawn, swashing it two and fro so furiously that all I could think of was that it was like watching the windscreen wipers of a car in a car racing game as he drove around running people over.

The first person perspective is probably very well suited to driving games as when you're driving anything, from a truck to a Tie-Fighter, then you kinda are like a blinkered horse, tunnel-visioned to face forwards and charge.
