For the most part, it's more advantageous to play in third person. You can see more of what's around you, see that ledge you're trying to grab, etc. But the game looks awesome in first person and sometimes I just want to play that way, except... It's way too disconcerting not to be able to see my weapon swings. How about an option to draw our characters while in first person? It'd need to be turned off by default, of course, but it'd be a really cool thing to be able to run around in a first person view and be able to see my everything (my attacks, my bow, etc.) properly, when I'm in the mood for it. I wouldn't think it'd be at all difficult to add. A lot of MMO's seem to have this as a toggle.
