Maybe you should expand on why it ruins the point of an RPG for you, then.

For me I don't see how first person ruins it, in fact in some ways it helps, like Eusis' #1 point there.

As long as I can do a nonlethal stealth playthrough, I'll be happy. I just beat the first one for the first time last week and HU-DAMN. awesome game.
Lethal for me, kthx. I'm apparently violent anyway.

to be blunt i'm a very aesthetically minded person. maybe its because when i was a kid and would play with my brothers instead of pretending we were the characters we manipulated action figures and made elaborate battle grounds for them. like when it rained we would be like sweet time for a swamp/water battle break out the boats and hover crafts!

Visual representation = fair enough! I get what you mean here. (I made my Barbies skate on the ice outside though. :P)

For me sometimes first person can simply be a better connection to the character you're in control of. It's not a necessity of course, but it helps.

Except even a lack of visual representation isn't "missing the point". RPGs depended on your imagination on the table, and quite a few even now are largely dependent on descriptions rather than showing.

I can understand not liking a first person perspective, or even thinking something like RPG and FPS gameplay is a bad mix, but there's no way it's missing the point of RPGs at all. At best this is like claiming Lords of Shadow is straying from what Castlevanias are by not having a Metroid-like world design, even though it was entirely stage based for the 10 years prior to SotN's introduction, and STILL had a few stage based entries afterwards until Iga took full control of the series.

I don't mind violence, but you never know who you're killing. That was one of my absolute favorite parts of the original DX-- finding strategic ways to approach situations to not kill anyone making use of the limited nonlethal arsenal. This new one just makes it look like it'll be even better.

That said, I don't mind the first person perspective. It helps me drop myself into the character, which is exactly how I think games like this should be played. If I were JCD or Adam Jensen, I would try to take as few lives as possible, and these games allow me to play that role.

Great... I can't understand what the guy is saying in English because they are dubbing over him in German...
Why must Germans always be evil ;)

I hope it's June/July. Just in enough time for me to beat it before Catherine comes out.

I hope it's summer too, there's already more than enough games coming in spring, autumn and winter that I want to get (Dragon Age 2, The Witcher 2, Mass Effect 3, TESV).
