Just got Borderlands 2 so I can multi-play with my friends. However, I seem to get a bit dizzy while playing it, just as it happened with the original Borderlands.

I've maxed out the FOV to 110, turned on Vertical Sync, fixed the Frame Rate to 60fps, lowered the graphical settings slightly, and disabled Depth of Field. And I still get a bit dizzy. Seems even a lot of the basic visual effects induce a sense of eyestrain without intending it.

Has anyone else had a sense of motion sickness playing BL2? I haven''t had this problem with any other game I play, including WoW and Counter-Strike.

For the record, I use 2x GTX460s in SLI and an i5-2500K CPU with 8GB RAM.

I started getting that with Bioshock 2. Never had the problem before, but I think it's because I'm getting older :(

No idea about the game. But I get the same feeling from the the trailers. Something about the camera imo.



Probably awesome in 3d ; ).

Saw long discussions about increasing FOV in the in game graphics settings, and long discussions about enabling 3rd person view patch/hack.

I've had that before in games that have "head bob". Turning that off fixed it. Don't know if BL2 has head bob.

Interesting. I get motion sickness big time in ARMA (1 and 2) but not at all in BL 1 or 2.
