What's a HUD and Why should I care?[]

HUD means Heads Up Display and shows information on screen while playing a game such as health, ammo, armor, radar / map, etc.

Playing without the hud offers several advantages including: a more immersive experience, increased challenge, better looking screenshots and videos for machinima, lack of worry about burn in / image retention on plasma tvs, and more.

Methods for each game vary. Some require mods (modifications), while others can be activated with a console command or by editing a configuration file.
