How does showing hitpoints mean a 'console-first' mentality? I don't understand that...

Floating Damage Numbers has always ruined immersion for me. If a game has them, I turn them off. If I can't turn them off, I don't play. I'm picky, I guess. Anyway, damage numbers popping up is something I've seen from early consoles and "arcade fighting games", so I associate that with "consolitis".

I think you are also confusing my "looks like crap" comment... That was intended as a separate statement... I think it looks like crap even if the damage numbers weren't popping up.

The environment looks good... the character models, animations, spell-effects, UI, etc. etc. (Just about everything else) looks like crap, IMO.
