Third-person Shooter Games

Mafia: Definitive Edition


It is pretty crazy to think that the original Mafia game is nearly 20 years old! I was very excited when I heard that the game was getting remade with the Mafia: Definitive Edition. It is a fantastic ...

Destroy All Humans!


The original Destroy All Humans! was a fun romp when it was released on PS2 and Xbox well over a decade ago. This remaster of the game was one that I was very looking forward to. The game manages to ...

Goat of Duty


I have come across some weird ideas in games before, but Goat of Duty might just be one of the weirdest. If you love old-school first-person shooters where they are just all about the shooting and ...

Resident Evil 3


The Resident Evil 2 remake was my game of the year for 2019 and the best video game remake I have ever played. So, I like millions of others were very excited to see Capcom give the same love and ...

Gears 5

Gears 5

To say that I was excited about Gears of War 5 is a massive understatement. This has been a game I have been looking forward to since Gears 4 ended on that cliffhanger years ago! This is arguably ...

Remnant: From the Ashes


There has been a fair bit of buzz about Remnant: From the Ashes. For me, it was how it talked about having a Dark Souls-like challenge with shooter-based gameplay. That to me sounded like a real ...

Metal Wolf Chaos XD

Metal Wolf Chaos XD

Metal Wolf Chaos XD is a very strange game to exist if you ask me. This is an HD version of an original Xbox game that was previously only released in Japan, a country where Xbox did not exactly ...

What was originally an Xbox 360 exclusive, Mass Effect (2007) would go on to be one of the biggest franchises of the last console generation. The game was so big that it would eventually make its way ...

A third-person shooter game has a gameplay in which the player’s character, who is also the protagonist, can be seen on the screen in a third person view. The view of the third-person shooter is such that the camera is placed right above and behind the player, aiming downwards towards the player.

The player controls the character in the game and the actions performed by the shooter such as jumping, crawling, fighting are features which are merely the same as in a first-person shooter game. An additional feature that is found in almost all the third-person shooter games is the aim assist feature which helps you to aim precisely.

Although in many ways, a third-person shooter game is quite similar to first-person shooter games, however, the two belong to different genres.  As a third-person shooter, the player is closely connected to the surrounding environment. This, in turn, helps the character to interact with the elements of the gaming world in a more realistic manner and also makes actions such as running, jumping or handling obstacles very easy.

Some of the third person shooting games such as Halo: Combat Evolved also have an additional feature of switching the gaming mode to the first person which helps the player in aiming precisely. The issues with aiming in these games rarely provide obstacles since these titles are designed to have an enormously spacious environment compensating for the view perspective.
