Deviants! I Needeth thine aid!

I'm trying to do some research on first person perspective in gaming, and how to potentially optimize such an experience.

Personally, I'm a bit of a roleplaying nut so I love a well made first person camera because of the immersion. However, sometimes there's just something wrong with it. The FOV isn't wide enough, the controls are wonky, I've even heard from some people that they can start feeling nauseous after playing around with an FPS for too long.

So in that regard, I'd love to hear your experiences and what you think makes for a good type of first person view, and what ruins it. Which games that you've tried did it well and what did they do right, which games did it...less well, and what went wrong?. Thanks for your time! :)

I feel that I still need some practice to get my digital colouring just right, but otherwise I'm fairly pleased with the outcome. 
Jerald! by Gray-philosophy
Character portrait of a D&D character I'm playing at the moment, Jerald the Tiefling fighter.

After getting the brilliant idea to reinforce his armour with ankheg chitin (hard plate bits from a very large insect-like creature) I figured it deserved a drawing to bring it to life.
DnD group by Gray-philosophy
DnD group
Group "portrait" of my D&D group.

After making a habit of drawing character portraits for my own D&D characters, the rest of the group demanded a group picture. This is the result.

From top left to bottom:
Anaki, the Tiefling ranger
Surya, the Fire Genasi sorceress
Darrow, the Half-elf rogue
Jerald, the Tiefling fighter
Walter, the unfortunate zombie (not official member of the group, but don't tell him)
Toraek, the Dwarven cleric

Good day...

I spend quite some time drawing when i'm not out and about. And figured i might aswell put it on display..

In case you have any questions you're free to ask.

Resource scarcity is a lie. There would be no poverty if money creation and resource distribution was in the hands of the people. Support a resource based economy to end poverty, starvation, and war. This isn't the hunger games. Humanity doesn't have to kill each other over scraps of food. We just have to take back our planet from the money changers who enforce the rules of artificial scarcity.
