      Minecraft has second person perspective. It's from the front.

                  Aren't text based games like Zork 2nd person video games? No camera, just a narrative focused on 'You' and instructions given to the player.

                      Could the first Resident Evil games be considered 2'nd person games? You see the character through surveillance cameras most of the times.

                            Arkham Origins has a similar scene where you fought some guys on a rooftop but the camera was from the perspective of a news helicopter.

                                Nick isn't super monkey ball a second person game as you're not actually moving the ball, you move the level, watching the ball therefore controlling the ball???

                                    my guess was a game where you would give another character instructions (although i thought via speech) while your husk just stood around or followed... kinda the same thing

                                        starts off video with interesting question, hinting at possible answers. Turns into a guy telling you about a single mission in one game like it was a story that he wrote himself or smth

                                                      With your logic in mind wouldnt the early Resident Evil games also be counted as 2nd person view. The camera isnt always set on the player its the room qand the player jst moves around it. I would say point and click adventures would also be 2nd person view.

So that probably qualifies as 2nd person too.

                                                                      • Buklen

                                                                              • Kevin Lincoln

                                                                                • Random Rainbowskull

                                                                                  • Random Rainbowskull

So that's was pretty close to 2nd person too.
