i'd have to say that i like the mix of the two. that way i can watch the main character interact with his surroundings and other characters, but also when you need to be 'up close and personal' you have that option too.

Welcome angel0fmus1c!
All that is gold does not glitter
Not all who wander are lost
The old that is strong does not wither
Deep roots are not touched by the frost

From the ashes a fire shall be woken
A light from the shadows shall spring
Renewed shall be blade that was broken
The crownless again shall be king

I love 3rd person because I like to see how the character reacts to the situation. Besides, typically, if everything is 1st person, the character is intended to be the player. I don't WANT to be the character. I know me! :P I didn't like Myst very much because I couldn't get into it. The 1st person disoriented me much more than it should have (You'd think, going through life in first person, I'd have a better handle on it... :P) So yeah, 3rd player promotes more plot/character development to me. The only time I've really enjoyed a game without much plot/character development was Lost in Time. I mean, there was plot, but it was so hard to follow I just gave up and had fun solving the puzzles. :P

3rd Person. I like to see all around me with out having to turn left or right and like other people said because I like to see the character interact with their enviorment.

One of my favorite scenes in KQ is in VII where Rosella is in the coffin with King Otar. It was just so creepy and cool to see in side the coffin and if it was in first person it wouldn't have been as cool.
