Half-Life 2 causes motion sickness

Steve Parsons

As someone who got motion sickness playing Doom (and yet still played it to death) IHalf-Life 2 can relate to those who feel sick playing Half-Life 2. Various places on the net have reports of a sizeable chunk of people suffering nausea and other symptoms from playing Valve's latest brainchild.

Video games have, for many years, carried warnings about epilepsy and seizure. Is it about time for a "May cause motion sickness or nausea" label?

Just to be different, link goes to Google Groups archive of a newsgroup discussion. Other folk suffering from nausea can be found here.
