Health bars are important to a game. They keep track of your current status and let you know when you're about to die. Most of the time, health bars are something lame like a bar that depletes as you take damage, or a few hearts in the top left corner of your screen. Usually, this is fairly boring, and goes mostly unnoticed because of how generic it is. Sometimes though, a game has a health bar that makes the whole experience a little more interesting. An example of this is the percentages at the bottom of the screen in Super Smash Bros. Unlike most fighting games, as you get hit, a number at the bottom of the screen counts up. The higher the number, the farther you'll fly when you get hit. The most creative one that I've seen is in the upcoming Splatterhouse game. As Ricky (the main character) takes damage, his flesh begins to fall off, giving the player a way to see how Ricky is doing without taking their focus off the game, as generic health bars often do. What's the most creative health bar that you've seen in a game Question

Actually, I forgot about this in the original post, but there actually is a game like that, sort of. It's called De Blob. As De Blob takes damage, he gets smaller and loses color until he turns completely clear and pops. It's not the exact same thing as you described, but it's pretty close.

I like the new things games do now where your vision fades when your dying.

Yeah, but it some games it can be annoying.
Like in Modern Warfare 2 it looks like you've got some strawberry jam on your glasses.

I like ones where you just bleed more & more until eventually you die. Like in DooM.
