You probably are already aware that a certain praymod has made a mod for Resident Evil 2 allowing to play the game in first person view, just like in RE7. If you're interested, the mod can be downloaded right here and is very easy to install. FOV can be tweaked, along with a few other things, and even the effect that darkens the edge of the screen can be deactivated. Here's a video to show you how it looks. Because of the character's animations, playing RE2 in first person mode is a bit similar to what you have in the latest Rockstar games, as there is some definite inertia when you move around. That being said, it's still a very nice addition to an already great game.
