I hear you TC. I have my console and TV in the living and with lots of windows, even with blinds closes, its quite bright in the day time. Makes playing dark a games a pain in the ass. Normally Im at work in the days so its really only a weekend issues.
If your playing at night and with sunlight glare or anything and its still to dark, maybe your tv is to dark or the games gamma settings needed uped a bit. I love playing a tnight more in many games cause I just love the atmosphere, especially in skyrim when the northern lights are in the sky, the snow, wind and the great music, its just awesome.
But I do wish in some games with a day night cycle the day would be a bit longer then the night, or hell if the game had seaons that made longer days and shorter nights at certain times of year that would be ocol too.
The only games I had a problem with this are Tales of Vesperia and Avatar Legends. Although in ToV, I at least could still see when it was dark or rainy. In some areas in Avatar Legends the only thing I could see was the Avatar. I had to increase the brightness on my TV it got so bad. And I actually did feel like I was playing night more than day in that game, just because nighttime was so unpleasant.
I play tons of open world games and RPGs that have this feature, and while I don't hate it I definitely have to say I prefer playing games in daytime.
Just from a visual point of view, the environments and overall graphics look WAY better during the day time (or at least at dawn), because of the way lighting works. In many games, I will simply rest or fast travel or whatever until it's day time and only travel then.
