How do I get a first person view, driving in Grand theft auto 4 on xbox360?

Asked by majorrich (14634points) January 14th, 2011

I was playing my son’s X-box Grand theft Auto 4 and after a number of failures and spectacular crashes, accidently mashed a combination of buttons where I had a view from behind the wheel! That made driving a lot easier! I’ve not been able to duplicate the feat which is very frustrating for a rookie game player. (even though I am 50 lol!) Does anyone know what I did to get that view while driving?

I think you just keep pressing Back and it cycles through the available views.

How bout you read that little booklet that comes with the game. I’m not sure, but I think it tells you what buttons do what in there.

Alas, if only I could find the box that has the booklet in it. I’ve googled for help and have been unsuccessful in finding what I need. He’s playing now so I will wait my turn again and try the Back button thing and see how that works. Driving cars at high speed like an R/C car just doesn’t seem like the way to do it in a game that requires a lot of car thievery and mayhem. My son calls it ‘getting my crime on’ lol

It’s no fun to drive the cars successfully in that game. Forget first-person. Keep crashing.

Otherwise in the “game options” and “control” settings there should be a detailed list of the butons necessary for changing the camera view in game. Look for “controller assignments”, “buttons” or any of the above.

YEAH! the Back button thing works! Thanks guys! It wasn’t in the pamphlet thing or anywhere I could find.
