Third-person perspective in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
Third-person perspective video games refers to video games in which the camera view is set outside of your characters body. As opposed to first-person perspective video games, you do not see the character's personal point of view, but instead you see a theoretical "third person's" view point "watching" the character. The third-person perspective offer the benefits of allowing the player to get a wider view of their surroundings, allowing an easier approach to multi-directional movement, making third-person the natural choice for 3D platformers like Super Mario Galaxy.
