First Person Games

First person view is the type of view in video games in which the player can see what his or her character sees. The virtual camera is "mounted" in the player character's eyes and moves along with the character's head. Even in the first person view, however, the game usually allows the player to see various non-diegetic elements that the character cannot see, such as HUDs that display the character's health and ammo. First person view is common in shooters (with first-person shooters being a subgenre on their own). It is also often found in simulation and racing games, in which the diegetic dashboards, such as speedometers, often substitute HUDs. Some games allow the player to switch between first and third person views.
