* In ''VideoGame/{{Warface}}'' you can see the body for your soldier including if you're woman.

* ''VideoGame/MetroLastLight'' keeps Artyom's body visible in an effort to maintain UnbrokenFirstPersonPerspective. Most actions, like throwing a switch or opening a door, take you into small cutscenes.

** No matter what character you've chosen in ''Goldeneye's'' multiplayer, you'll always have Bond's arms. ''Perfect Dark'' fixed this, but then fell into the trap of every NPC referring to you as a woman, even when you're playing as a big hulking Scandinavian man.

''Perfect Dark'' fixed this, but then fell into the trap of every NPC referring to you as a woman, even when you're playing as a big hulking Scandinavian man.

** SpiritualSuccessor ''VideoGame/BioShock1'' has both of your hands visible at different times (left hand is Plasmids, right hand is guns), but your feet are missing. One of the lesser goals of the sequel was making it possible to see your feet. And your shadow, if you happened to step in front of one of the few dynamic lights in the game.

Basically, you're just a pair of sweater-sleeved arms, as revealed by this [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqHf4C23XAM third-person mod]]. This also applies to your later [[spoiler: conversion into a Big Daddy]], in which you are STILL portrayed as a pair of sweater-sleeved arms, despite [[spoiler: wearing a full-body diving suit.]]

* Not just FPS games suffer from this. The ''Videogame/{{Myst}}'' games are a series of first-person puzzle games that had a First Person Ghost whose only visible appendage was a floating hand cursor. Justified in ''Myst'' and ''Riven'' due to movement limitations, but by the time ''Myst III: Exile'' rolled around, the player could not only look down and see that they had no feet, but also wind up standing ''on thin air just off of the edge of a cliff.'' It's worse in ''Myst IV: Revelation'' when [[UncannyValley the hand cursor gained a more realistic look.]] You could even inexplicably tint the hand strange, unearthly colors other than 'skin tone' or 'heavily pigmented skin tone'. The developers thankfully fixed this in ''Myst V: End of Ages''.

** ''VideoGame/{{Obduction}}'', also made by Cyan Worlds, does the same thing for the same reason, but includes the option of adding a generic male or female shadow, which if nothing else makes screenshots look marginally more realistic.

* ''VideoGame/JurassicParkTrespasser''. Not only did you see your arm but also your breasts, an essential view since they had a tattoo that represented your health meter. There's a code to play the game in third-person, but, as seen in the page image, this reveals that you are literally a levitating pair of boobs with a gun.

* ''VideoGame/SystemShock'' and ''System Shock 2''. ''[[http://www.it-he.org/sshock.htm The Hacker's Guide to Sin]]'' goes further: not only does the main character have no feet, but he's able to activate healing stations from 13 feet away, yet unable to search bodies across a gap, so he most likely has boneless tentacles that snake along the ground.

* ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'' plays this quite straight; unless you get into a vehicle, the only parts of yourself visible are your arms.
