    I've been a sufferer of FPS game motion sickness since Doom!
    I am not losing weight! I'm getting rid of it. I have no intention of finding it again!

    Its quite common, something to do with the eyes seeing movement but the body knowing its not moving.

    google fps motion sickness

    I had a game on GTA4 the other night and went into a bar, the drunk mode was just unreal. I had to switch it off instantly

    Wow, seems like something serious to be honest. I get certain eye strain, as if I can't keep my eyes closed sometimes. Feels wierd. Apart from that, I've never encountered anything so common.

    Did I miss the message that explained why a Thursday/Friday competition closed on Thursday?

    "answers in by 5pm tomorrow" means that it was really a Thursday competition.

    Discombobulating.
