I'm a 360 Peasant so I have no FPV, so normally I'm in the closest view, but in a chase or as things get more exciting I back off into the farther views so I can see the "scene" better.

 

When I'm doing something like a Simeon mission where I'm delivering a car across half the map trying not to damage it and also trying to be fast (because time is money), then I back off to the farthest view and use the joystick to raise the camera as high as possible to see far down the road and even over hills in some cases, to see traffic ahead.

3rd person, furthest. Can see more and I move the camera around.

3-2

 

but when doing missions and I have to shoot from the car I switch to 1st. It's so much easier to drive and shoot accurately that way.

3th person close almost always, medium/far when racing because you can have a better view on turns and when somebody is coming close to you, you can see where they're coming from to avoid being rammed.

 

When I'm just cruising arround I use 1st person view, I used to enjoy it much more but since I got my driving license I realized how lame it is on this game.

A pretty even alternation of the 2nd closest 3rd person view and then fp. I switch between those two pretty often because some cars and guns do perform a lot better in fp view.

Third Person lvl.2 is one of the best views in the game.

1. What view do you like best? (If you don't know, say IDK) 3rd Person lvl2


2. Do you use it because it was the default setting? Nope.


3. Are there any benefits or reasons you prefer to use the view that you do? Yes - I can see better. Too close and I'm staring at my character's ass. Too far and I can't see sh*t any better.

I also pull back the right analogue stick to give me a better view up ahead, and I tend to turn the camera into a corner so I know what's coming round before I take it

50/50 between 3rd person level 1 and 1st person for driving and boating. I'm always afraid to fly in first person because I'm always thinking I'm going to clip a wing on something and blow up...

I mostly use third person,medium distance,high camera view.Sometimes I switch to first person,mostly in new cars (to see the interior) or on motorcycles (it makes the engine sound louder).

3rd person level 2. I could see what's going easier and it's not too close or too far.

For tail happy cars such as the comet, muscles and sports classics, FPV is the one I go for. I feel much more in control and I can judge corners and spaces much better.

Plus police chases feel much more action packed when your're in this view; constantly trying to judge traffic whilst taking chances to fire my gun back towards the police.

 

Also there is just something about thundering along the highway in my slamvan custom in FP. The sound of its engine, weaving through traffic, classic rock playing; it just feels... good, very good.

When it comes to racing, if I'm using my 55' in the livingroom, I go for level 2. My bedroom tv is smaller, a 42 inch, so If I'm racing there, I use level 1, and then go back to level 2 for freemode

First person for me, especially the Comet. (70% of the time)

 

For racing and missions, close 3rd person.

I wish I could say first person, but until we have decent VR so we can look around easily, I have to drive in 3rd person level 3. I hate turning into things on the side that I can't see.

If you use your right stick you can easily turn your head too see what you're doing.

I switch between level 2 and 3, mostly staying on level 3. I don't like first person or level 1 because the field of view is too small/tight.

 

EDIT: I also have the camera on "high" in the settings menu.

1. What view do you like best? (If you don't know, say IDK)

 

2. Do you use it because it was the default setting?

 

3. Are there any benefits or reasons you prefer to use the view that you do?

 

I appreciate all votes as well as replies, thank you for participating!

1) 3rd person level one, I find I have a better 'feel' for the car the the other 2 3rd person modes, and can control it better.

 

2) No.

 

3) See 1. Also I find throwing sticky bombs more accurate the closer the view is to the rear of the car.

I prefer 3rd person, usually the closest one. But it can depend on my mood or what car I am in.

 

Sometimes I swap back to hood view though and use that.

Third person, closest view.

I crash in first person too much

And I need zoomed in as close as possible in aircraft so I see how close I am to colliding
