Hi Guys, simple question here. Can you play Witcher in 1'st person view ? I see only 3'rd person view on the films and photos.

@knut-am: I think it would be very hard to support the W3's melee combat in first-person, with its emphasis on things like rolls... It would also probably make a lot of the less open environmental difficult to traverse. In general it seems like games get designed with one or other in mind, and supporting the other would take quite a bit of work... Fallout 3/NV are sort of the opposite, they work quite well in first-person, but the third-person mode, while playable, is pretty weird/awkward.

BTW, there's a bug which sometimes crops up that makes the game almost like first-person... it wedges the camera around Geralt's ear, so you mostly see his hair and the scenery, and sometimes the camera moves inside his head, which is really freaky basically his eyeballs floating in the scene...
