For scary and mysterious i prefere 1st person.
For games like Broken sword and Paradise (remember swinging in the cage, hahaha), 3rd person. wave

If we're just talking scariness, as the original poster asked, I definitely think 1st person lends to scarier atmosphere in a game. I think some of the spookier games I've played, like Dark Fall or Scratches, wouldn't have been nearly as spooky if they were 3rd person perspective.

For me I prefer 3rd. person mainly because sometimes first person can make me nauseaus. But as far as scare factor go's it doesnt matter, if its good and scary its works for me either way. smile

I like both but it depends on the game. In URU you were given a chose to switch from first to third person and I liked that!! But I love first person for scarey ones. It scares the pants off me :LOL:

My overall preference for games is 3rd person. But for scary/spooky games I do like first person. It seems to up the suspense when you can't see if something is sneaking up behind you. smile

I too like the option of being able to switch back and forth between first and third person views, but most of the time it really doesn't matter to me. I feel that the in game atmosphere dictates more to me about how scary the game is. Its all about the music, lighting, sound effects and things going bumb in the night. And lastly the occasional monster or creatures jumping out at me. Definately does it for me.scared
