That and a game that pulls off 4 dimensions believably (I know a guy who's doing some research into this... It's hard to get your head around).
I don't think I'd ever play a spacial mind f*ck game... Would probably end very poorly for me, no matter how innovative it is, haha.
Have you ever played any of the old text based adventures? Those were technically in 2nd person (it refers to you do this, you do that). Shadowgate for NES is another 2nd person game.
Sure is a lot of people not knowing their vidy games. Also, death, I think you may have confused whoever that was with the 1st, 2nd, 3rd person perspective. Your definition really only make sense from a writing standpoint. It may hold true with video games, but it's not as clear as it could be.
First person is the view of your character. You see only what your character sees. Example of this is pretty much any FPS
2nd person is a bit harder to explain. It's when the game refers to you. Not necessarily your real life self but yourself in the video game. The best example I have of this is the old text based adventure games.
Easily my favorite deaths in VIDEO GAMES
3rd person is where you see your character from an outside perspective. These games are usually anything that doesn't fit into the above 2 categories (aside from puzzle games which really doesn't have a perspective).
