I actually hate the idea of tying a HUD to the car ingame. I think it's cheesy
In Dead Space it worked very well though to keep you immersed in the gameplay.
GURU, you mean a health bar? Yeah, that would definitely be something that could be turned off or on, since it runs immersion for some people. Myself, I don't like everything disclosed for me. In Witcher 3 I turned off health bars except for bosses.
But I do understand that in Arena mode, it's probably a good idea to have it
@Roq: That's a good point about pick-ups and more easily knowing what you've grabbed. Maybe a subtle green or red flash could go off, indicating a power-up or weapon. Having the icons at the top is interesting as well. Will discuss with the team
