      I think its a crime against information when something goes out of print, and to top it off I really want to play this game. I hope you succeed

      Nick Robinson you mentioned people pirating the game at the end. What if somebody pirated it, then made a mod for it to be able to replay missions of the player’s choice?

      Nick Robinson so I’m wondering what a second person movie would look like. Tech probably isn’t far enough to properly do so though

        The Driver example is still (without ambiguity) in a 3rd person perspective. Second person perspective in games would look just like 1st person. In a narrative sense, the main character would be "you".

          I think there is a horror game for the PS2 called Siren that has some 2nd person segments as well, also, some boss battles in certain games feature a 2nd person view, like when battle the Specter Robot in Ape Escape 1 and you see yourself from his PoV. Also, Smash Bros. applies if you play a match with Duck Hunt since you are seeing the match from the eyes of the Shooter.

                      Tbh this is what I always wanted to see in movies.
                      Like the camera is a person in the movie, (or multiple people) who watch the main character.
                      I never knew that there's actually a way, this is mindblowing

                                I don't play video games, I don't watch this stuff, but this was honestly quality content to watch. From a non-player, guys, this is actually interesting.

                                      There is a story mission in Jak II where you control Jak through the perspective of a Krimson mech that is chasing and shooting him.

                                        Oh I never realized that 1st person means I and 3rd means he... I always thought 3 just means it's farther away than 1 and that second person perspective would be like third but closer to the character :/

                                          Read Bright Lights, Big City by Jay McInerney, it's a really awesome novel written in the second person. In it, you are a cocaine-addicted newspaper editor with a recently estranged wife living in New York City.

                                                I'm surprised that in all the years of me playing first person/third person console games, I never once considered what a second person game would look/play like.

                                                    You should have looked up what second person means before making the video

                                                          I found another game, where there is a small section you play in a "second-person" mode. It´s called "Jak 2: Renegade". I´ve never thougt of it as a "second-person" section, but it totaly is. You are followed by a big tank and you see your character out of the vision of the tank, but you still have to move your character out of the shots of the tank... Maybe you wanted to know, there is another game with this feature ;)

The second player that plays with you has to move and watch their player through the third person perspective of player 1. Therefore, gta San andreas also did a 2nd person perspective. 😳

There's a boss fight where you see the turtles from Shredder's perspective. He's shooting at them while they're fighting the foot clan. You control the turtles and hurt shredder by grabbing members of the foot clan and throwing them toward the screen to hit shredder.

                                                                                                Though really, if we were to take it in a strict grammatical sense, wouldn't a "second person" game just look like a first person one, since it's "YOU" do this and "YOU" do that? The one game that made me think of that was actually a star trek game from 2002 called "Bridge Commander", which had both first person and third person elements, yet all the game & promo material made it clear that it was "YOU" in charge.
