This is because gender is one of the main points that interfere in the choice of users. If in shooting games the preferred choice was for first-person titles, MMORPG players showed that the preference is clearly for third-person games. For their part, Sandbox-style games were the ones that showed the greatest balance.

Age also influences the choice of players

Other data from the research also showed that the preference for first or third person games according to age. In this way, in addition to the playing style, the age of the players directly influences the choice of viewing style. Interestingly, gamers over the age of 35 almost always opt for third-person games.

Coincidence or not, this is usually the perspective of story games that do not require as much concentration from the players as in more competitive titles, for example. Meanwhile, the youngest end up choosing to play first-person titles. The age result also varies by gender.
