Added DiffLines:

* The ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8o7oh0ZSxc title-sequence]] starts with one. It's about as realistic as can be expected from a Gameboy Advance game.

* ''VideoGame/KirbysEpicYarn'' features lens flares in its beach-themed levels. Hilariously enough, they're also [[PaintingTheMedium made of yarn]].

* ''VideoGame/TheTuringTest'': Present all over the place, and it was one of the reasons why some people initially thought Ava was a robot. [[spoiler:It actually seems to be due to the player being given Tom's point of view at all times (who just uses Ava's eyes to interact with the world during most of the game).]]

* VideoGame/NoMansSky could easily be 'Lens Flare: The Game'. ''Every'' light source has lens flares. '''Flowers''' get so bright they cause lens flares and washout when you scan them.

Added DiffLines:

* Vintage television programs sometimes exhibit an ''inverted'' LensFlare effect or "dark halo" around bright points of light, such as lamps. This was an artifact of primitive TV cameras, which could be overwhelmed by brilliant glare.

3D video games in the mid-to-late 1990s were absolutely polluted with fake-looking lens flare effects. The PlayStation port of Quake II added a little star-shaped glare effect ''and'' a lens flare around every light source on the map. Walking down a corridor with spotlights was a ridiculous experience. Games journalists therefore refer to any bandwagon visual effect as [[https://www.google.com.au/search?q=%22is+the+new+lens+flare%22 "the new lens flare".]]

* Older ''AceCombat'' games (such as Air and 2) has no lens flare. Conversely, it got really gratuitous in 3: Electrosphere (but it does look awesome). Later games have it, but not as pronounced. It does serve quite functionally. If you line up the lens flare, you ''will'' get disoriented by staring at the sun. Think that's not a big deal? The very first mission in Electrosphere has you heading towards the sunset to intercept some backup fighters. For a lack of better term, you basically ''couldn't see shit'' (aside from the lens flare that is).

* This is decently done for the opening animation in ''SonicAdvance 2'', a Game Boy Advance game. The "camera" flies across the ocean before panning up to reveal an island. It continues to fly up, giving us a lens flare, then the title screen.

* This is not merely an animation or CGI trope. Modern lens coating has reduced flare a lot, but many prefer to use older lenses (which are more prone to flare) as strong coating has much higher contrast and many directors prefer the softer look of lenses with less (or no coating). For example Creator/JanuszKaminski and Spielberg used uncoated lenses on ''SavingPrivateRyan'' for that reason.
