Return to Castle Wolfenstein makes me sick


My girlfriend and I tried to play RTCW. I made sure the game and computer was updated.
My girlfriend watching me play got really sick with major headache and nausea. I searched the web and found information on how to turn off bobbing. This helped her from getting seriously sick, but the game still gave her bad headaches.

I also notice ill effects. I was having very strange head pressure and feeling really tired the next day.

No other game has done this to us.

The game was fun, but we had to stop. It sucks not being able to finish the game.

I suggest others avoid playing this game.


I replayed RTCW a short while ago and also felt nauseated. I remember feeling that way the first time I played the game. This is one of the few games that makes me sick. I have played almost every FPS since the original Wolf3D, so it's not like feeling motion sick is normal for me. I have a feeling it relates to either the player movement or the field of view. A recent game, FarCry 2 was irritating, almost giving me a head ache until I increased the horizontal field of view.
