Video Games And Motion Sickness

Getting motion sickness while playing videogames affects a lot of people, yet it seems almost like a taboo to talk about among gamers because you might not be seen as "hardcore" since you can't play certain things.

Motion sickness caused by video games, sometimes called simulator sickness, is caused when there is a disconnect between what your eyes are seeing and what your body is feeling. The most common theory (taken from many medical websites) about why you get sick is that your body thinks that you have been poisoned and you are hallucinating the movement that you are seeing but not feeling, so you get nauseous and (if you don't stop playing right away) vomit in order to flush the toxins from your body.

my girlfriend can't watch me play 3d games because of this problem. I think I will have her try Ginger pills to see if it helps.

yup, it happened to me when call of duty 4 first came out. I would sit and play for like 5 hours straight when it happens.Just stop and take a break, do something else. I'd just go and get some fresh air and stop playing for the day. Doesn't happen anymore though. Well...until Condemned 2 comes out.

dizzy from a video game but those 3D sit down theaters get me sick as a dog.
Not the ones that just wiggle things in your face but those ones that have fast moving motion races or whatever.
