Myself, I generally just push these options to the widest FoV possible as I sit rather close to some very large monitors.  I know others who don't even bother fiddling with this option.

??? Is there a question here?

My question exactly. I Googled FPP and found that it means Full Packaged Product. msmile, what does the field of view have to do with whether a game is packaged or not? Was it a typo, did you mean to say FPS? And what's the point of creating an account just to tell us about your computer setup?

I'm guessing it means First Person Perspective. I've seen people use FPP - and TPP, Third Person Perspective - a bit these last few weeks. Presumably it's gaining popularity in certain circles.

Then it actually makes sense.

The question of the topic can be considered: "Is it better to use 3rd person camera or first person camera" as it is often argued what of these camera's provide the most accurate view regarding to our senses.

PUBG uses that terminology,  which pretty much makes it standard now, given their crazy player count.

That’s niftypuff.

Thanks for sharing.  I was wondering where msmile032 sat, and now I know.

 

If you cared to contribute to the world of video games, that would be niftypuff.

If you mean the OP, that would be me.

It is a useful bit of information, Iv'e played PUBG without ever noticing it and after confirming that indeed it is how it is in the options I up voted the post.

It's like the whole MMO/ Rouge like thing. If we as developers don't keep up with these terms we will only be confused by what players are talking about.

 

Also considering what new developers call top down games and 3rd person games, having FPP and TPP to help clear things up would be great.
