I know that first-person shooters (FPS) are all the rage these days.... but where are the third-person games at? I've always been a much bigger fan of 3rd person perspective and mechanics when it comes to action/adventure games.
The original Tomb Raider the first two Resident Evil games really started me off in that direction way back when, but it seems as though there are way more FPS than third-person being made these days.
I hear about games like Half-Life, Bio Shock, Portal, Left For Dead, and Dead Island, and get excited about their premises and critical reception, but then never go any further because they're first-person games.
Assassins Creed 3, Resident Evil 6, the rebooted Tomb Raider, and especially The Last of Us all show great promise going forward.... I hope it leads to more focus on that style of action game.
