I didn't realize you were kidding haha.To be fair, it was a bad joke. I didn't even exhale any extra air.
Lazy devs rhetoric is far too popular and even if it's usually dumb, it is something I fear.You'll be fine.

Being first person, my two priorities are immersing the player into the world and having them know they're human. I don't want the player to come to the conclusion they're a ghost or something.
