Bungie's FPS Destiny originally began it's days as a third-person only shooter and most players who have experienced the thrill and enjoyment of sandbox games will agree that it should have kept that way or at least given players the freedom to toggle between cameras.Whilst the absence of a third person camera toggle is by no means a deal breaker to 'some' it's still a problem, especially when a game such as Destiny prompts you to create your own character, a character which you will see very little of outside secure areas.
Skyrim did it the right way, allowing players to toggle between both first and third person view to their leisure without limiting the player's choice, something which is unfortunately missing from Destiny, a highly visual open world shooter.The problem is that Destiny is a first-person shooter with tons of customization, which can be troubling as a concept. It's similar to the original Elder Scrolls games, where you can spend all day creating your character's face only to never seeing it again once the game begins.
If Bungle wants it's players to care about which armour they wish to wear (beyond stats), they're going to need to let players look at themselves a lot. Granted, a third-person view in combat would be a huge balance issue for competitive multiplayer but Bungie must can figure something out.
What's the the solution you ask? Well obviously a third camera toggle would be a step in the right direction and allows players to become more immersed in the story and scenery whilst taking pride in their outward appearance aka virtual vanity, do you want a 3rd person view for your character?
