Is HL2 making you sick????

Given our kin-ship with HalfLife 2, here is a separate forum to discuss anything related to HalfLife 2 and the various Mods out there (eg, Gary Mod, Zombie mod etc)

The reason is:

HL2 uses an unusually low FOV (field of view/vision) of 75 degrees. Most FPS games use a default FOV of 90.


The remedy is:

To change your FOV you need to do the following:

Open HL2 and type the following into the console:

sv_cheats 1
default_fov 90
fov 90


How bizarre :shock: I don't feel sick but i put it down to being a hardcore gamer :D I can take it!

i readed it a while ago (2 weeks?)
i think it happend to people who haven't played any GOOD next-gen game, like America's army, Far Cry or Halo and any other things which look good, and since their brains aren't used to it, they start acting weird, since it is total new, i never feel sick while playing HL2 (aven after 10 hours lol)
but if you game more then 2 hours a day, and play next-gen games, don't worry :)

This happened to me once, when i played HL1. After about 1 hour in when you are walking around and stuff i felt so bad i couldent play and i was sick 7 times in the next 3 days. Strange cause ive played Red Alert 2 for like 12 hours in a day and not felt bad at all. And i have done 9 hours without a break on SC:PT without any problem. And I play CS:S all the time. :shock:

Playing that long is not good for you, that accounts for every game, not only HL2, I think :)

I play one map, or two. Take a brake after. Come back later, play a map or what again.

I just don't have it in me to play non-stop :)
