HUDless games

Group Description

Most games have sections of the screen reserved for numbers, graphs, or other visual abstractions of important game data such as score, health, and ammo. The total screen area used by these sections is called the Heads-Up Display, or HUD. A lot of games try to minimize the intrusiveness of the HUD by using a minimalist or transparent style, or by automatically hiding elements of the HUD when they aren't immediately needed. Games in this group have no HUD at all during proper gameplay. Every piece of game data is either tucked away in a sub-menu that must be manually opened, or is concretely represented within the physical game world. Low health might be indicated by the protagonist limping or bleeding, ammo might be indicated by an LED readout on the weapon, and so on.
