FOV in games–why do some people get sick

Posted on December 19th, 2011 in Hardware & Software,Video Games by andrija

There’s an excellent video here that explains why do some games makes you feel sick (nauseated, dizzy or worse) while others don’t. If the screen you’re playing on doesn’t fit into your cone of vision so some of it end up in the peripheral vision, then your brain isn’t going to like it. Some people never have a problem but quite a few does.  Most often this happens in PC games as the monitors are ever larger yet stay at the same distance from our eyes. So, demand FOV control in your games – or play them from farther away. Another good reason to sit back and play with a controller, even on a PC.

    I agree, something with my brain just messes me up with FOV and I feel weird when there’s a low FOV.
