* ''LegoRockRaiders'': The game gave you the option of playing things from a Rock Raider's perspective. What makes this a somewhat unique example is that this game is an RTS. You can actually take direct control over a Rock Raider and move him around. While not very practical, it was mostly useful for the fun of it in a low-pressure mission.

** The Arkham games also switch to first-person whenever Bruce crawls through ventilation ducts.



* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' allow the player to voluntarily switch between first and third person perspective, though the game will automatically switch to third person during a character's death animation. Also, if the player is using V.A.T.S. the camera will occasionally switch to a dramatic third-person shot whenever an enemy dies, showing their death in slow motion.

* A battle in ''RatchetAndClankUpYourArsenal'' goes into second person perspective as a monster chases you down a halll - that is, the camera is from the monster's perspective.

* Likewise,

to:

* Likewise,Likewise, ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' switches between first-person and third-person views in certain contexts, such as conversations, and the player can switch between the two at any time. Interestingly, the game will automatically switch to a first-person perspective whenever the player equips a firearm, although it is possible to fire a gun in third-person - it's merely incredibly awkward.
* ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', like [[VideoGame/MassEffect1 its]] [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 predecessors]], normally has ThirdPersonShooter gameplay, but switches to first-person perspective in two situations: piloting an Atlas mech in the vanilla game, and piloting the underwater mech in the "Leviathan" {{DLC}}.

[[AC:StealthBasedGame]]
* ''Franchise/MetalGear'' games switch between 1st & 3rd person depending on the actions the player is performing. If you are crawling through tunnels, guiding Nikita missiles or aiming with certain weapons, the view is 1st person. Otherwise, it is 3rd person. Certain versions of the game allowed the player to voluntarily change to first-person, and from the second game onwards the player can aim weapons in first-person.
* ''VideoGame/{{Hitman}}'' games from the second one onwards allow switching to first-person view (though some animations, such as lockpicking, still force a third person view).
