Prone - Is it a good thing in FPS?

The ability to lie on the ground, is it good or bad?

Would removing it cause problems in games like CoD, BF, etc.?

As long as it never touches Halo, I'm fine with it.

Going prone isn't used in real life? What are you even talking about? I never said fps games were realistic but you're a fool if you think nothing in them is realistic.

Realism aside, does prone do anything to enhance your experience? Would you miss it if it was gone?

I like going prone as a matter of being able to hide better and a way to further steady a weapon. It isn't required for all games, but certain ones kinda need it and feel weird without it.

I hate crouching behind a barrel in BF3 and making myself an easy headshot for someone because my big-ass head is sticking up over the top. I might as well just be standing up.

Of course as mentioned above Halo doesn't need such a thing.
