Third-person games are a genre that a lot of game developers overlook. This genre was popular back in the days of the PlayStation 1 and the PlayStation 2. But today, it is a genre that is rarely used. This is a shame because the third-person perspective can add a lot to a game by giving it a more immersive feel, and it can help increase the quality of the gameplay. In this article, I will talk about five games that do this very well.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an action RPG played from a third-person perspective. The game is set in an open-world environment, and the player can explore the world mostly on foot or on horseback. 

The player uses swords and magic to fight against enemies and can also use a crossbow for long-range combat. The game features several different types of enemies, including humans and fantastical creatures.

As with previous games in the series, the player controls Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter known as a "witcher". Geralt can traverse the open world alone or with one or two companions. He can also take on a series of side-quests and choose to ignore the main storyline entirely. 

The game is set in a dark fantasy world and features a dynamic day-night cycle, which can have a significant impact on gameplay. The main story revolves around Geralt's search for his loved ones, who were taken from him by an unknown assailant. The plot is affected by the player's choices in how to deal with NPCs and in certain side quests.
