Resident Evil wooziness

Posted by Fleppie (200 posts) -

Since I got up early today I decided to play some Resident Evil 5 on the pc in order to play something other than WoW. I also decided to go with the pc version first before I hit the 360 version. The idea is that I get to know the harder parts of the game eg the bosses before I switch to the slower control scheme. 
 
But boy does this game make me woozy. It really hit the motion-sickness sweet spot. And the weird thing is, it gets worse when I lock down the frame rate to 60hz which is the refresh rate on my monitor. But when I  unlock the frame rate it is actually playable to me, although i still feel the impact the game has on my motion sickiness.  Isn't it supposed to be vice versa?
 
Anybody else experience this?

All good here. And I can bear the Mirror's Edge so I guess I don't have motion sickness. I can see where you're coming from though, the camera's kinda floaty.

I played the game on 360 and I didn't have any problems.
