    Okay, this is giving me serious motion sickness.

    Looks pretty much unplayable.

    @2 – I couldn’t even watch past three and a half minutes in before I had to turn it off. It was making me seriously nauseous. I can’t imagine playing it. It’d probably have the same effect the Kane & Lynch 2 demo had on me.

    @3: Really? It just looks confusing for me, but I don’t feel sick or anything. Liked the style in Kane & Lynch 2. Do you have a problem with playing or watching someone else play a First Person Shooter? My girlfriend can’t watch me play FPS, but when she plays it, everything seems fine.

    I used to have a big problem with them on earlier gens. I distinctly remember vomiting after a Duke Nukem 3D session once, so I didn’t play them for a lot of years.

    Then when my ex got me my PS3, I picked up Clive Barker’s Jericho for her to play. I figured I would just watch until I got ill but I noticed I felt fine watching it, so I played it, with no problems.

    I think it has to do with the framerate and how steady to camera is. Like Mirror’s Edge, I was only able to play in 20-30 minute bursts before I had to lay down, but Bioshock Infinite I was able to do for hours with incident (during the little skyway things, I would just focus my eyes on something steady on screen).

    When I played the demo for Kane & Lynch 2, I was fine until a part where I tried running and the “cameraman” started running too, with the whole screen bouncing up and down. It was like being punched by nausea. I had to stop playing immediately.

    That sucks. Guess you miss out on a lot of great games. I remember my girl had problems with K&L2 as well. I know K&L2 isn’t a good game by a lot of standards, but I thought the art-direction and the idea of it being some found footage material uploaded to youtube was amazing. No other game has been ‘grittier’ than Kane & Lynch 2.

    Not really mising much. I’m not very fond of FPS for the most part. Bioshock Infinite’s story was great, but I wouldn’t have minded if the game hadn’t had a single shooting section as I felt the actual combat portion of the game was very boring. And Deus Ex and the Fallout games switched from first to third person enough that they were never an issue.

    @5 Take motion sickness tablets for a day or two while your brain adjusts.
    It helps, I have the same problem usually when starting a new FPS.
    Taking drugs to game ~_~

    I disagree Dave, I think you need to write about ponies.

    But yeah, watching a bit of it, it doesn’t seem like it’d be very fun. More aggravating than anything else. Still, very good experiment.

    @7: Yeah, the combat in Bioshock Infinite was the worst part about the game. Didn’t help that the later parts were just floods of enemies against you. I wish it was some kind of point ‘n click adventure.

    I hate games with third person perspective. This game in first person? Now I would pay for that! I know this is glitchy and rather unplayable but makes the game 1000000x more interesting to me and I would be overjoyed if such a modification could be perfected to feel like a ‘true’ first person game.

    @11 From Software’s previous games were basically 1st-person Dark Souls games.
