I havenít always had this problem with simulator sickness though. It only started when games went fully 3D. I remember the first game that set me off was Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and it took me being sick twice while playing it before I realised that I could keep playing for hours on end. It was a horrible feeling especially when you know how awesome that game is.
There are ways you can counter act the sickness like taking motion sickness pills or moving your TV further back but I have a tiny living room and I canít afford pills for every gaming session, so I just play my games in moderation to avoid staining the carpet.
Happily there are still lots of games I can play that donít get me all pukey that I can spend hours and hours playing and kick people butts at, but sadly, deep down in my heart I know that I will never be a professional FPS gamer and that hurts me. Well, okay maybe not but it would be nice to even just beat my boyfriend at Call of Duty: World at War.
