  • So choose-your-own-adventure books/games are second person? Eg. "You go in to the cave... press A to light a match, B to shout etc"

    YES!

    that's the only example in literature.

    In games not so much but when the player presses a button, he is performing the action, so the game is actually addressing his in-game persona, so it's first person.

    In a 2nd person game, characters would have to address you (the player, not your in-game character).

    Maybe.... seaman?

  • You could say most rpg's are that way. Then again if you were playing first person and there was a dialog that said "You got a potion.".... Anyway yeah games don't always have to follow those rules.

    So please, you'll have to excuse me for putting on my sassyboots, when I get corrected for something that doesn't matter.

    I think that would count, yeah. "You were eaten by a Grue."

    As I said before I think Dance Dance Revolution or WiiFit might be as well, since "you" are the one dancing or doing situps or whatever. I suppose that's debatable though.

    And I think the amount of dust on your dance pad or balance board would factor into the equation somehow.
