Forums - Gaming Discussion - Bioshock Infinite "motion sickness"? Or did I eat something disagreeable?

I have heard of people getting something like motion sickness from a videogame.  I never experienced it, so I wasn't sure what it was.  Well, I went out last night, after seeing a Red Box email that Bioshock Infinite was at a local Red Box unit, so I went out to get it.  I had been thinking of it and wanted to try it.

Not sure what it is, but did I get virtual motion sickness?  I am playing, and then felt nausia come on.  What the game tries to do is great, and the world is engrossing, but suddenly start to feel nausia.  I had never experienced before.  Am I actually experience the videogame version of motion sickness?

I was curious what was going on.  I am likely going to have return the ame before finishing it.

Oddly, I had the same issue while playing Bioshock Infinite. I had to take many breaks in between.

Never had that issue with a game before and I have played many FPS titles.

I get it from certain games. This is one of them. Though this isn't as bad as others for me. I had to stop playing dishonoured. Could not manage 10 mins at a time.

Possibly. I haven't played BioShock Infinite yet, but that sounds similar to what I experienced when I played Half-Life 2 and Portal. Those are the only games that have given me motion sickness so far.

If you haven't already, check to see if you can increase the FOV range. After I move the slider all the way up it helped.

Portal is the only one that came close to making me have motion sickness but it isnt as bad as what others may of said ;x.

I never got it except on this one loading screen where you were whizzing by stars but I don't remember which game. I just remember I couldn't stare at that loading screen without my eyes hurting and feeling a little sick.

I get it if I happen to be watching someone else play a FPS, or playing certain ones myself. The first time I ever actually felt it was playing Mario 64. That said, I'm almost finished with Bioshock Infinite and I never felt it one bit. And I'd consider myself pretty susceptible to it.

happens to me everytime i play fps games

I had to check, because I never had this happen before, And I think it is mainly the skyhook parts which really get to me. Go figure.
