Wait, wait, wait, is this describing lens flare as a gameplay detriment and unecessary effect, focusing on the downs, or as lighting effects for games, cgi, and whatnot in general? As in unbiased.

EDIT: Oh wait, this is LENS FLARE (Light diamonds). I was thinking of sun glare ITSELF (look at something super-bright, floods your vision with light. Case closed.

P.S. Genre savvyness: bad grammar destroys your credibility, amirite?

I get flare on my glasses, which I've had for many many years. It just seemed so natural that it never occurred to me that this was a camera trope. O_o

I'm getting different lenses next time.
