Since the view would be exactly the same as a first person view, only about 9 inches to the left, it's also baked by the numerous 1st person shooters with dodgy aiming and targetting systems.

Avast yer lubbers. Do ye all reckon that polly'll be gawpin' in the same direction as good ol' Long John for the whole time? 'tis unlikely, methinks.

[Link added to "2nd person shooter", so that we don't go over that again either]

Carry on, in your own time.

hippo: thanks/sorry. But why's "2nd person shooter" in the "computer: game platform" category?
-- pottedstu, Nov 19 2001

UnaBubba: Why not just use your first one?
-- StarChaser, Nov 19 2001
