Op Ed

truepcgaming - Visual Noise: A Criticism of HUDs.
Having a player’s health, ammunition, inventory, and abilities always visible is a staple of the gaming medium, but one that we may be better off learning to deal without. I make this claim based solely on the experiences of noticing that virtually all games get better without an always-on interface. I’ve managed to nix 90% of the unnecessary HUD materials off New Vegas through two mods, and the result is a game that is unquestionably more immersive, balanced, difficult, and above all, beautiful.

And in case of open-world games, exploration is to be encouraged.

Sometimes you want to explore.
Sometimes you want to finish the damn mission so that you can get some kind of closure before you save and run off to whatever you're about to be late for.
