I'd like to see such animations as well although I don't find them necessary. I'm only worried about motion sicness. I personally prefer fpp games and played a lot of those but when I remind myself latest Thief with all those pickpocketing animations making the camera zoom in and out over and over again, even I felt bad from it after 30 min of gameplay. So everything depends of how often such animations would take place. In Thief game where you constatly grab some loot it was not very good idea.
