Its third person shooter ya jackass!!! haha
but I played Goldeneye, my first FPS, on a console. It feels mo betta that way.
Eh whatever, you look over the dude's shoulder the entire time, other perspectives are useless for actual combat, so it's still essentially the same.
As for "which came first" I don't really buy that argument. All the shooters I ever played before Goldeneye I played strictly with the keyboard, no mouse at all! (Even though I could have, I just never thought to until games with freelook started becoming commonplace). Mouse and Mouse+KB provide a MUCH finer degree of control and precision than any console controller can ever hope to.
