GameObjects not appearing in scene

Every time I create a new GameObject in the hierarchy, go through the usual steps of adding a sprite renderer and then choosing a sprite, when I click play it does not show up. When I go to the #scene however it does. This also happens with my animations. I have done it a million times and this has never happened before. Can someone please help. Thanks.

BTW I am using unity 4.6 and have already tried force quitting it

Game Scene:
(nothing showing up)

Scene scene:
(the sprites show up)


Have you checked the sorting layer and render order of the objects? Seems to me they’re just being rendered after objects they should be rendered after.

Also check if the object is not “behind” the camera. Shifting to 3D vision can help you visualize that.
