Oblivion Q&A with Telefragged

Telefragged has an interview with Pete Hines of Bethesda about this little known game they've been working on, which could use more hype. If you haven't heard of it, I'm not surprised. It's called Oblivion and it's for the PC and XBox360. Anyway, clippy:

Finger: Some gamers out there can't play first-person games because the viewpoint makes them physically ill in just a few minutes of play. Will Oblivion's third-person viewpoint be usable in all situations? Can one realistically go through the whole game in this view?

Pete Hines:
As someone who used to have that problem, I can sympathize with how bad it can be at times. Yes, you can play the entire game in third-person, or change between the first and third-person at any point. It's certainly possible to play the game entirely in third-person.​
I remember this statement about Morrowind as well. Sure, you can play the game in third person so long as you didn't want to read any signs or didn't want to go in to that dwarf dungeon at the beginning of the game because the switch was so small, it was nearly impossible to target it in third person. I'm sure there's cases of that later on in the game, but I had so much trouble with the third person in it, I switched over to first. So, yeah, you could - but it sucked. Here's hoping they're serious about third person this time.
