It may simply be due to having different gaming roots; it may be down to a simple question of taste. Whatever way you slice it, most gamers have a preference one way or the other. Those who love FPS games tend to veer towards staying in the first-person in MMOs, and third-person seems to be an eclectic game-type mix from those we've spoken to. Since many MMOs are set up to do both points of view, it's obvious the designers intended for the option to be there. That said, which way do you tend to prefer running in - first or third? Is there any particular reason you run your game that way? Or do you switch back and forth, with no real preference for either?
