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.

My only HUD-related issue is the fraking radar in Deus Ex: Human Revolution. I want to get rid of it without disabling the whole HUD. Its very presence has a negative impact on both the gameplay directly and on the potency of the augmentations.
