You're the one making the game. Unless the game is supposed to be competitively played (League of Legends, Counter Strikes, Warcraft and all that) you should just make a game to how you like it I think. I mean, if there is no money involved in the game.
The problem is when there is a game released, players start making competitive tournaments, and developers change the game so, that the game becomes unbalanced. If you're just making a game, you shouldn't care about such things I think
Just make it fun or enjoyable to play. Just my opinion though.
