Do we really need two Zero Punctuation quotes and a Zero Punctuation image?

Is this really limited to third-person-view games?

Having slinky kneecaps (or a slinky neck) can also affect first-person games. Here's a tip, game-makers: try looking and walking at the same time and see how much your field of view actually bounces around.

It might be Reality Is Unrealistic: they've coded all the reverse kinematics that go with walking and the PC's head really does bob around like that, but they failed to account for the brain's editing that movement out of concious perception.

It's kinda naive to blame a bad feature of a game on "Lazy or Incompetent" developers. Much more often than that it's due to a game being forced out the door in way too little time to finish a game.

Also, The second bullet point doesn't seem very accurate either. Putting a game in third person is never "to show off environments".

I would remove them myself, but it would leave the "reasons" section very bare, and I'm not sure what kinda formatting/conventions I should follow when making bullet points, so I'll let some other chumps do it for me :D
