    I think the motion sickness is due to the fact that the weapon trails behind the camera. When you move the camera fast, your weapon eases in and out of center creating a visual lag...At least with me that was the case. But the sickness I felt was very minimal, I'm used to it now.

    Say, arn't games made to make the gamer feel like he's in the game and feel like the character he's playing?

    Project-Entropia gives me this feeling that my stomach is floating upwards when I jump from the citadel....anyone?

    I get sick when I play UT2K - I always thought it was because I was running around too fast. I'm not that skilled at any game really. The worst part is the sick feeling seems to last for a while after I quit the game.

    Blah, I hate getting motion sick from playing videogames. It doesn't happen too often tho, I just found a way to move the mouse the right way. And it usually happens when I'm playing TOO long... like I'm sacrificing food in order to play. lol

    But those FPS console games are another matter.
    Life is the ultimate videogame. How do you play it?

    Does anyone actually play a game, goto bed and feel like you're still playing it... and then wake up the next morning and continue gaming and feel like you're replaying it? [Because you finished it in your dream ]

    Or is that just me?

    Why not just turn off automatic updates?

    I finished the game, and thankfully, didn't get sick. I seem to remember from a loooong time ago (Doom 1 days or so), that if you get sick while playing a game, you should hide the weapon from the screen, use a faster refresh rate (this might mean a lower resolution, depending on what your monitor can handle), and never, ever play in a dark room.

    I have to say, though - playing HL2 in a dark room, with a surround-sound system cranked up kicks ass.
