I don't see why anyone would like lens flares.

After all, games are designed to make you feel as if you're there, which DOESN'T FUCKING WORK if there's lens flares which only appear through CAMERAS.

:P

Exactly.

Yep, BF3. It's rare to see a game without it.

It bothers me the most in 1st person games.

This is the most excessive use I have seen so far.

P.S The game isn't very good. The gameplay is fairly good but the settings and story is boring. 3rd person COD. The characters are dull.

haha reminds me when people first discovered photoshop lens flare and you would see companies everywhere using the default gradient colours on their text, was it a greeny and a brown merge? or they would use one of the drop down pre-sets if they were daring.

I actually like lens flares done in a subtle way but I agree these examples are ott

Surely you get lens flare wearing glasses like all those gamernerds do, so it's only realistic? I guess you could also get lens flare squinting like the slitty eyed yellow team, so not having it is racist tbh.

Yep. I hate this too. Any type of effect that is supposed to mimic a camera. The blood can be acceptable (still looks stupid) since it is an indicator, but that is where you draw the line. Rain, snow, dirt etc is silly. It takes me out of the game. I'm not seeing though the eyes of the character with that shit...I'm watching an interactive film.

maybe it's a distraction tool like how low budget films will be in black and white to hide their low grade sets like in american astronaut



it makes your imagination fill in the gaps that'd be otherwise technically lacking if you could be aware of it

Then you should play a new game because goggles are fucking badass, and you're character's a little bitch for not wearing any.

I like it in the Arma series, but it's more a bloom than a lens flare. But it makes for a nice tactical dis/advantage. Standing on top of a hill with the sun rising behind you really gives you the best cover possible in the game. Almost impunity, just like IRL.

That's pretty bad. I don't like anything on the screen itself either, I tried to find a mod that would take off blur and screen blood splatter in new vegas because it was giving me a headache I can't relate immersion to it, I don't understand.

now I'm noticing it more. the civ 5 startup screen:



when it's for decoration on a still-shot like this it can do something for the image that it's supposed to. but the same intention doesn't match when you have to navigate a game where it's something you have to to put up with

wow, that gives a new angle to it. maybe it only has use in multiplayer. you can shine your flashlight in your opponent's face and stuff
