Third person is less popular in VNs as it leads to a bit of a disconnect between the story and visuals. But that doesn't mean it's not possible. The Stanley Parable is a first person game with a third person narrator.

Then again most novel I've been reading are either in Vietnamese or Chinese so I don't know if there would be any different LMFAO.
Out of the topic amg -- sorry
Can someone give me an example of a 3rd person Visual Novel choice and story? (like a bit of the story leading up to a choice).
Choice and story are all depend on how you want to handle it. If you wrote your story in third person but still strictly stick to one character's perspective, you can always do the choice like how a normal first person visual novel do. (What should he do? | 1. Do this | 2. Do that)
I thought of another way to approach this by making your visual novel appear to be a flashback or a story telling time with the choice be like "He remember that time she: 1. Kiss him | 2. Slap him"
I still agree with SundowKid about the whole disconnect between the story and visuals thing. But if you know how to handle it nicely, I bet it's gonna be a master piece~~
Yush, all of this is just my poor opinion hahaha (╯°□°）╯
