    Games that make you feel sick?

    Anybody else get this?

    Just started playing Dead Island: Riptide and I can't play it for more than about an hour without getting a headache and starting to feel sick.

    I haven't played a lot of games recently but I could happily play Far Cry 3 for hours (and hours, and hours) without any problems.
    It just seems like, once in a while, a game comes along and there's something about it that makes me nauseous.

    Worst I'd ever got it, previously, was with the LucasArts Jedi Knight games but Riptide seems even worse.

    I can't really put my finger on what causes it but I think it might be something to do with the field-of-view or the perspective.
    It all just feels a bit "narrow", somehow; like I'm playing the game with blinkers on, or looking through the middle of a loo roll.

    Anybody else get this, or know how to cure it?

    1) That guy swims like a maniac.
    2) He has a severe buoyancy issue.

    That might explain why the game came so natural and easy for me?
