Over the shoulder, because is a mix of two others and it make feel you like you are running behind the character /o/ :lol: It's fun for me

There seems to be a push towards cover-based games atm. Chest-High Walls(tm) are the new run-and-gun.

Shooters should be first-person. Mass Effect 3 is the first to be able to effectively pull off the over-the-shoulder thing. No, Gears of War didn't manage it because it felt clunky. Can't speak for the later games, I guess.

Third person is best for everything else except P&C, tbh.
