maybe you should stick to calmer things like playing the piano.

haha. If you are getting motion sickness maybe you just weren't cut out to play certain games.

Half-life and the Unreal games are what make me really motion sick.

I never really had a problem with Half Life 2 on PC. Unreal games on PC have usually messed me up, but the Xbox version (original that came out when Live launched) and UT3 on PS3 both are good for me. No motion sickness there.

I got sick first part of COD 4 single campaign.. when you have to search in the house.. but I have no problem online.. open space is nice...

Maybe you should try camping on FPS.. :)

The only part of the CoD4 single player that got to me was in the very beginning when you're running out of the sinking ship. As the boat is turning further and further sideways, I got a bit iffy. Thankfully it didn't last very long

haze did it to me with the camera sway. luckily i was able to turn it off.

The article is spot on for me, framerate and camera issues are the two culprits. Most of the times I can play hours upon hours without problem though. Probably shouldn't though, being a responsible adult and all.
