I just learned something... maybe...
« on: June 18, 2020, 06:27:12 PM »
I learned that FPP is 'First Person Perspective' (an opposed to FPS - 'First Person Shooter')

Don't normally like FPS.

But I have always liked (the original) Fallout.

So... is Fallout (original) FPP?

And does anyone like Deus Ex GOTY? (now on GoG for 97 cents).

Original Fallout is Isometric gameplay. Unless you're referring to narrative, where I guess it counts as first person perspective?

I'd say an example of an FPP would be Dear Esther. Playing as a protagonist, from their first person perspective. There's no guns, so it's not a First Person shooter. :P

Deus Ex might also count as it's more of an RPG, than an FPS.
The sun beyond the mountain glows
The yellow river seaward flows
You can enjoy a grander sight
By climbing to a greater height

I have run out of places to climb. I will abandon this body and take to the air. We will leave twin vapor trails in the air, white lines etched into these rocks. I am the aerial. In my passing, I will send news to each and every star.
