Could be a fren
I didn't even notice that. I guess two generations of that as a "realism" design choice in AAA games has inured me to it. I only really notice stuff like that when the panting-while-running gets a little too pronounced (e.g. MGS V and Horizon Zero Dawn).By far the weirdest and most off-putting choice in this remake is to have the player grunt and groan with every action they take.
