    There has been something missing from many of the newer games, and I know many of you are inclined to agree. Now, I'm not saying the newer games are bad. Not at all. However, there does seem to be an element that's missing, and it's hard to put a finger on. Some people have pointed out that the plots have been lacking in maturity and substance. Others say there's not as much character interaction. While I agree with those statements, there are other wonderful petitions out there addressing those issues and I would recommend you check them out! =] The other day I noticed something. More and more of the newer games now utilize the third person point of view (controlling Nancy from "birds eye view" and not actually seeing the environment through Nancy's eyes). Before you write this petition off as pointless, let me make a few points.

    Now while this may not seem like too much of a big deal, think about how much less "exploring" you're actually doing. How many potential scenes you're missing. This contributes to the problem of not having as detailed and expansive environment to expore. And it's not like HER was forced to go to third person. They've proved in all of the earliest games that it's entirely possible to create Nancy's "world" without any third person at all. Remember exploring the forest in DOG? And sailing in DDI? I loved seeing all of the sights and being able to use my magnifying glass to actually search find clues. You can't do that in third person as well. Those are only a few examples. Now I suppose I don't mind a little bit here and there, but lately it's been taking over way too much of the game. For example, I hear that much of RAN is in third person (golf cart, sailing, etc) And in HAU, you spend half of your time controlling Nancy, and not actually being Nancy. Where's the fun in that? I thought the whole purpose of the games was to "be" Nancy. That's why we never actually see her. We're supposed to feel like we are her. If you feel the same way, I strongly encourage you to sign this petition. I'd love to hear everyone's opinions. If there are enough signers I'll send it to HER. Thanks for taking the time to read this (very) long post! I really appreciate it. =]

    I just wanted to say, I've just been typing everyone's user names who signed because I'm unable to copy and paste your actual signatures (meaning with color and what not) at the moment (if you made one that is). So I apologize for that!

        I completely agree with everything you've said. Sometimes it's ok, like driving Nancy's car in CLK. I felt that was perfectly fine, and that was fun. But, especially in HAU and RAN, it gets annoying. So, defintely sign me up!!!

          I agree, third person is being used wayyyyyy too much. They need less 3rd person as a major transportation. Like HAU... ick. WAY too much!

            Count me in. There are only two things that annoy me more: little exploration and limited character development. Unfortunately, all seem to be in Ransom of the Seven Ships.

                  I definitely agree. A little third person can be fun, but when it makes up practically the entire game? Not fun, not exciting, not suspenseful - not Nancy Drew! Sign me up!

                    Thank you for making this petition, I completely agree! (: One of my favorite games is DDI because I love the ocean and seeing the atmosphere through Nancy's eyes made it even more realistic & exciting while kayaking! The "bird's eye view" thing is harder for me to control on my computer also. :/ Sooo, anyway, I'll sign! :D

                      It was the third person, the exploring, the edge-of-your-seat
                      thrill that hooked me into Nancy Drew - ; I wish they'd bring
                      it back. Sign me up.

                            I agree 100%

                            For me,Nan games were like no other.For anyone who played the older Nan games,we had the view as if you were Nancy,and that was insporational to me.I always wanted to be like Nancy,trying to solve little mysteries around my house like "who took the last cookie" or "the case of the missing pen" because of her original books also some of the older games.Now when we play as having a "bird's eye view" it's not the same.I am not saying that the games are bad now because of this new feature(sp?),just they don't have the same effect.I will always love ND games but not have the same feeling that I use to.
