    I find it quite endearing myself, given it's presence in old shooters such as Quake and DOOM.

    Giving players the option to choose is the ideal solution here.

    don't do anything if you can't answer "why?"

    so why yes? how does it fit your game?

    still, even if all roads point to yes, allow an option to turn off because many people hate it.

    The question is flawed. The question isn't if you want to use it, the question is why, as @BIGTIMEMASTER stated.
    A little help to understand:

    Please ALWAYS give a player the way to turn this feature off. There are many of us who suffer from video game motion sickness for whom a bobbing camera will make the game completely unplayable.
