This game makes me completely nauseous to play it...Every now and then I've noticed there will be a FPS that makes me feel that way. It all started with Turok on N64 and it still hasn't stopped. Bah. Prey does the same thing to me so I normally limit myself to about 10-15 minute sessions before I start feeling queasy. Anyone else get nauseous from similar FPS's?

haha, keep it cool guys :)

I am sure it has something to do with the frame rates and the player's eye condition. I have no problem playing most FPS games but there are certain titles that makes me dizzy. Up to the point that you'll feel that you'd like to throw up.

I have similar problems when playing Medal of Honor titles. Usually it occurs to me after playing an hour or two. But for Jericho, I don't have that problem.

Prey would almost depress me on how sick it made me. I don't think any game could ever surpass that, it seemed like the developers goal at times with some of those puzzles.

Haven't played this yet, but it's on it's way to my house. And i'm looking forward to it.

You may want to check your sensitivity and make sure its not too high. Oh and for Prey that game was different, you were on walls and went through portals...it was disorienting but not nauseating.

I think Prey was both. I absolutly could not play it for longer than 20 minutes.

i didnt really have that problem with jericho. probably because its not a faster paced shooter with a loose aiming system. the only fps lately to make me a little dizzy is the darkness.

I didn't have any problem with Jerico, but I completely know how you feel, oddly enough I got the same feeling from Lego Bionicle. I agree that it must be something about the frame rate or something that just doesn't sit well with your equilibrium.

I have heard people say they get sick during portal also. There where a couple of parts in Prey that got to me, looking forward to this game tho....

I get that way in bioshock sometimes, usually only listening to the diaries.. like the Timmy Interogation.. the one you pick up the dead girls body that Steinman was "working on." And mass effect because the frame rate is so bad.

thats funny you say that because I know Half-Life has a history of making gamers feel sick. Ever since the very first game people have been complaining about it...

To tell you the truth im exactly the same way. Started on 007 on the 64. I also get it this feeling while playing any Doom, and Duke Nukem.

Sometimes when I play "Halo 3" and I am looking at the screen from a wierd angle I get dizzy.
