That’s because almost every other game handles darkness extremely poorly. Even in deep underground caves where there is no clear source of light at all, the ambient brightness is so high that you may as well be walking around the streets of Phoenix at noon.
Torches, flashlights, light sticks, night eye potions and spells, all of it rendered completely pointless because the rocks are glowing like 60w incandescent bulbs. And I don’t mean the weird radioactive alien rocks. I mean plain old, ordinary, sedimentary rocks that you can find in any driveway.
