    I got this with dead island too. I think it's the console fov when playing up close to the monitor on pc. Why some developers don't adjust this I don't know.

    Yes, Dead Island also makes me feel ill after a while. I assume its the camera swaying, especially when he gets into a vehicle. Odd, I dont usually suffer from it.

    Edit - I remember I used to feel ill after playing 5 hrs straight of UT/quake, but thats just asking for it.

    I think it's called simulation sickness, and it does exist, and it's not really a case of manning the fuck up, tbh.

    I've never really had it, apart from once playing Half-Life 2. Had to turn it off for a while. I reckon the fact that I'd had about 6 cups of coffee was probably more to do with it, though.

    I get this with quite a lot of 3D platformers where you control the camera with the right stick.

    Game that makes you sick for certain: GTA 1, the zoom in and out on the car while driving turns your stomach upside down.

    The Kane and Lynch 2 multiplayer on PC made me feel ill instantly. Single player was fine though. Game was shit mind you.

    I've had it with most FPS. HL, HL2, Doom3, Cod. I can play for hours one day and be fine and then 15 minutes on any other day feel sick as a dog.

    Had the same with Dead Island until I changed the field of view to an angle that looks a little less like you're looking through a telescope. It's in the options (at least in the PC version, don't know about the consoles).

    Metroid Prime.

    Overpowering nausea was the cherry on the top of a shit sundae of respawning enemies and first person 'guess' jumping.

    Which reminds me of another Gamecube title which gave me motion sickness, Billy Hatcher.

    I never really experienced it on the PS2 for some reason, though that could be my choice of games, the last proper FPS I played was Halo and I've played only a couple of slow paced first person games since, Michigan: A Report From Hell I played start to finish with no problems.

    A few minutes of the Mirror's Edge demo was enough to take me back to Wannavomit City though.

    I've never had it, but the missus gets sick from any Gamebryo game, and a few other first-person games.

    I'm playing Dead Island on a 47" LED and don't get it.

    However, spending too long in Shift Mode in Driver San Francisco makes me feel queesy.

    I get it very occasionally from games - Marathon on the mac used to sometimes trigger it, as did Half Life on the PC.

    Often find it's flickering near the edge of the screen - just in the peripheral vision that sets it off.

    Those 3d TVs where you wear the glasses give me motion sickness almost immediately - bleurgh.

    I remember the only time I had this was playing TimeSplitters 2. I had owned the game for about a year so I had no idea what was going on at first. I'd pause it and go sit by the toilet, thinking I was going to throw up. Once I felt better i'd come back and try again. I did this 5 or 6 times before I realised what was going on. Thankfully it was only a 1 day thing.
