3rd person shooting in fall out 3 ? you get a reticule on teh screen or what?
the thing that makes Resident evil 4 work so well is the laser sights
You have a crosshairs type thing in the center of your screen regardless of if your in first person or third.. but it has an awesome V.A.T.S. system in which you activate it at the beginning of a battle.. It freezes time, and lets you analyze the enemy.. It zooms in on them and you select which body part you want to aim for, and it shows you your percentage chance to hit that part.... Then once you have selected the part or parts (your action points sometimes allow you to make multiple attacks in a given attack (it does a cinematic type thing usually when you are attacking in the VATS mode...)) you eventually use up those points.. If the enemy is not dead, you can use an item to replenish action points, or just go at the enemy with the crosshairs...
I know that sounds insane, but it's sick.... Check it out on YouTube or something.... You can probably setup your 3rd person camera to mimic games like Ghost Recon, Socom (although I wouldn't keep the feet in frame, as those are what makes it look a little silly sometimes), or any other similar game in which you are third person..
