[Suggestion] Game immersion...

I just came up with this idea and registered to share it, as I think it would be awesome to see it in a horror game; particularly one like Amnesia. It's to do with game realism...

The idea...
Basically, for users with headsets/microphones (most gamers thesedays!) there could be an 'increased realism' setting in options, which, if checked, would link the microphone input to the game. The effect? If you start making noise, it makes noise in game - based on the volume of noise being picked up by the microphone. This could translate to increased breathing, frights of terror, to outright screams; all of which would alert enemies to your presence.

So imagine, you're walking down a corridor... you start to get scared - and then you see an enemy, or hear a noise - and you WANT to yell or scream in real life - but you know that if you do, the enemy would hear you and undermine your hiding position!

The mic volume levels could be calibrated, and filter out background noise.

This simple feature would add so much immersion to the game, imo. And make it a much more interactive and scary experience.
