I haven’t personally written in first person-past tense, but I know I’ve read a few books at least with that POV and I enjoyed them. I can’t think of them in the moment, but I know I’ve read some before.
One of the things I enjoy the most about that POV is how the MC (or narrator, basically), can foreshadow and leave hints here and there about what’s going to come next, as a result of them “telling” the story after it happened. I’m really bad at foreshadowing but I love it a ton. 🙂
So while there are things you’d have to watch out for, as you listed above, it’d be really cool if you wrote a story in first person-past tense.
