First person perspective, or 2nd person?


#1

I’ve read both types of games and they can be both well written, but sometimes I feel like it’s awkward/ harder to use first person but the experiences created are more personal (typical with first person since you can hear their thoughts sorta?) and 2nd person seems less personal and more at a distance (from what I expirenced anyways) but easier to control and write(ish?)

So my questions are this, when the MC is written is first person do you, as the reader, feel a more personal connections? Or does it distance you from the character since they have their own "thoughts"
That might not totally align with "you"
And is that okay? Acceptable? And when you read a story written in 2nd person do you feel less of a personal connection?

Thanks for reading! :hugs:
