Topic: Games that give you motion sickness

Posts 1 to 20 of 20


When I first played 'GoldenEye', this Game gave it to me and then I realised First-Person Shooters did.

I somehow got over it but for some strange reason, 'Sleeping Dogs' (which isn't an FPS) gives me motion sickness so I can only play in 30 minute or so periods.

I love that Game but no other third-person view Game (such as GTA5, Fallout 3/NV, Fortnite etc) makes me feel queasy.

Which Games makes you feel queasy?

Surprisingly none. And I'm someone who gets carsick after just a few minutes.

None. I don't experience motion sickness easily. It's usually when people around me get sick that I start to feel queasy.

I do feel my heart sink when plummeting from great altitudes in games though. It's quite an awesome feeling, actually. Sometimes I'll let my characters in games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Pokémon Legends Arceus plummet to their deaths just for funzies.

Too many, I've become accustomed to navigating to the options menu and turning screen shake off before I even begin playing a game.

Hyrule Warriors Legends on the 3DS made me ill, like I was on a cross-country car trip. No issues with the Wii U or Switch versions though.

I remember Mirror's Edge having a similar effects. But to be honest I'm terrible at that game, I rarely picked up enough momentum to feel ill



@Cyclist Anyone else get motion sick feelings when they play Spyro Reignited Trilogy on the Switch? I don't think I have the issue with any of my other 3D action games, or first person style shooter games on the Switch.

I only play Spyro docked on a TV. Sometimes get motion sickness issues, if I do enough running & turning around, which is part of the game. Mind you, I completed the story in Spyro 1. So, motion sickness wasn't a massive issue. I'm tempted to say frame rate plays an issue when you do a lot of turning around. And I'm not one to complain about low frame rates. So, I'm surprised I have the issue with just this game.

I may sometimes feel a bit visually overwhelmed with certain stylized games, but I don't think I've ever felt motion sickness while playing a game.

The only time a video game has made me feel sick was the minecart level in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker using the Labo VR. Even the other VR levels were fine, but that one level made me feel quite nauseous.

@WoomyNNYes I played the first 'Spyro' on GameCube and I said at the time NEVER AGAIN!



I get headaches if I play any game on the tv for to long



I only get some minor motion sickness while playing VR. Nothing serious like feeling ill or wanting to throw up, but losing my sense of balance. It only happens when I'm standing while on a moving platform of some sort, like a vehicle or rollercoaster.

I sometimes play certain VR games and after about 30 minutes or so I have to stop due to motion sickness. It gets so bad I sometimes find myself having to race to the bathroom to get sick, it can be very unpleasant.

I never liked sand or desert levels, particularly Banjo Kazooie, Metroid Prime and (if I recall correctly) Mario 64. With games having better graphics and faster refresh rates now the problem seems to have gone away, but they did make me feel queasy at the time. The other thing was PlayStation VR. I tried it in a shop and suddenly felt very sick a while later on the walk home.



I don’t play many FPS games. I remember getting lost in Metroid Prime and getting really queasy.

It’s really weird, I haven’t experienced motion sickness other than Minecraft and BOTW in vr. 🤷

If you are responding to me in forums or a comment I would much appreciate it if you quoted or tagged me in your responses so I can see it and respond. Otherwise I usually can’t tell that you’ve replied. Thanks! :)


I hardly ever get motion sick playing games, but the only exception I can think of was when I played Simple Planes VR on a friend’s headset. Oh my lord, that game made me feel so sick. And I only played for like 10 minutes. But I felt sick even the next day.

I don’t think I ever had motion sickness.
Sounds like it stinks for those who have it.



Been playing Xenoblade 3 and jumping off cliffs in the game which really makes my stomach act funny. Same thing with any Monster Hunter game too



Zelda warriors made me want to hurl....had to stop and take a break.
