    gosh, Im in my mid 20ties, I dont wear glasses and Im in great health, but whenever I play FPS games, I get bad headache.
    Its like I need to see the person I play, cause with all other Games I have no problems and before someone asks, no I have no problems playing with the 3DS.
    I tried to play Conduit 2 last night and, lets say after 20 Minutes, i felt like...well, everything was turning. I remember playing CS 1999 on LAN-Parties..and after 30 min. I needed to take a break.

    So, am I the only one with this ^problem^ [​IMG]

    You might have an undiagnosed neurological condition. My gf has one and gets dizzy seeing shooter and some rpgs but just like like you the 3DS doesn't affect her any. Shes 22

    See I told someone that you can get headaches from games.

    I never really had this problem. I know someone who does tho. Forgot what type of games that affect that person.

    The first time I saw an FPS, I had the biggest headache, and I never get headaches.

    Well, I did play GoldenEye, but don't remember it much. The first one I clearly remember is Call of Duty 3 for 360 (Near launch title I think). My friend was playing it, and I was just laying down with such a headache.

    After that, I don't think I've ever had a problem like that though.

    yea, maybe, just funny it happens only with FPS games. Besides, i dont have epilepsy nor does anyone in my family.
    I forgot to mention, that while I have cockpit view in racers, I dont have this problem.

    But i suppose ure right. Maybe I just need a settling in period... I always gave it up [​IMG]
