Hi Nicol,
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?
