Game sickness

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Game nausea or English Gaming Sickness is the nausea that by playing computer games caused.

In contrast to simulator sickness and motion sickness , in which contradicting perceptions of the sensory organs are considered to be the cause, a disorder of the vestibulo-ocular reflex is assumed to be a reason for nausea. The point is that an object that moves on the screen is not followed with the eyes, as it would be normal, but without eye movements through actions on the joystick.
