First- and third-person text
Traditionally, all EV writing related to the players actions has been in second-person. You do this, you do that, you dance inbetween weaves, you shoot somebody, you eat a quesadilla, you sleep with a hot member of the opposite sex, whatever.
Well...what if you didn't use second-person?
What if you, say, chronicled a part of someone's life in the mission descriptions, and merely had the player follow that person's actions? For instance, "I" would get briefed, the player would take off and compete the mission, and then "I" would collect my pay and get debriefed. Essentially, the player's role could be carrying out all non-text-based actions of the person the story is about.
Thoughts? (Nothing about quesadillas, please.)
