Sure can. The primary difference between First Person and Third Person
games is purely visual. In a Third Person game like Tomb Raider you can
see the main character like Lara Croft on the screen, at all times, as
you move around the game world. It is like a movie where you can see all
the players on the screen at once. In a First Person game like Doom
there is no actual character on screen and the entire visual perspective
is if you were actually standing there in the game,and all you might see
of your game character is an arm holding a weapon or something like
that. Otherwise there is very little difference how the game is actually
played. Does that make sense?
