do you find the HUD usefull or just an annoyance?

but sometimes not everything on a HUD is needed and it is useful to switch some information off. It would be nice to see the alternatives to a HUD such as those shown in your link.

I guess game designers have a hard job when making HUDS as making it to complex will distract the player and if theres not enough info on screen it can make the game hard to play.

Halo in my opinion has the best HUD just enough info on screen to make the game playable with out it becoming a distraction.

I play motor racing/rallying games. A rev-counter, speed and current gear display are essential, but other HUD elements are an unnecessary distraction.

I personally wouldn't be without my HUD when playing racing games but if there is the option, I cut down on it and only have displayed basic information like speed, revs, gear, etc.

I tend to turn mirrors off in racing games as I find them distracting!
