Slightly less bad than being knifed in a kidney while strolling on a street corner.
Or could end up muddled up if you want to access all the content. Really depends on how that specialization works and what are the gates it opens.
I'm pretty sure it's been confirmed that the male/female choice will affect dialogue choices and possibly story. I mean, real life is different depending on whether you're a man or a woman, even though we don't see ourselves from a third person perspective. If you see the male/female choice as purely an aesthetical thing then sure, but there's more to it than that.
Third person conversation and cutscenes. Voiced character. It's a ROLE PLAYING game. Choice of gender is huge to character customization/ownership, even if you aren't looking at them every second of the game.what's the point of getting to choose between male and female if the game is a fps? what's the point of wearing cool clothes if you can't see them?
will the game at least go to third person during dialogues? because if the game doesn't even have those witcher 3 like conversations i'm seriously going to drop the game
