    The Sun's role in games can vary. In most games, it only exist to differentiate day from night. Sometimes, the sun's existence in a game is understood, other times, the sun is actually drawn in. As the earth rotates, the Sun's light can sometimes have a different appearance. This is typically seen in games with a Day/Night cycle, and is most pronounced at sunset. The sun is commonly portrayed as the giver of life. It is usually seen as the opposite of the moon.
