I really wish there was some sort of motion sickness review of video games. A small percentage of shooters just kill me when I try to play them. A bobbing camera is usually the culprit. I can't imagine this adding much for anyone and certainly ruins the game for me. Condemned 2 is added to this list of games I've encountered that induce headache and/or nausea. The funny thing is I don't remember having this problem with the first installment. Sure there are tricks that I can do to muscle through a game like chewing on a ginger root or playing in short bouts in a well lit room, sit across from my tv or monitor, I suppose I could turn up the brightness until it breaks the game, but I'd really like to avoid these games altogether and I don't seem to know how to.
Some games are generous enough to provide a stationary target or the ability to remove head bob, but why not make this the default in all games? I know this doesn't affect everyone and even when it does the effects vary but it's hard for me to imagine how this enhances the experience for anyone.
Wouldn't it be great if a site compiled a list of the worst offenders? Anyone know of one? Is anyone else here affected by this, and had to quit playing a game because of this problem? Maybe we should start a list.
