I stopped playing serious video games a few years ago. I occasionally play tetris or jawbreaker or pacman, but nothing like the kinds of games I used to play in the ’90s. A few nights ago I decided to play the ‘Final Fantasy XII’ demo on our SONY PS2. After about 15 minutes of gaming, I started feeling dizzy and wanted to throw up. This is normal for me, I could never stand 3D environments and free camera motion (as more and more games were released in 3D-only in the late ’90s, the more I moved away from gaming).
Apparently video game sickness happens mostly to left-handed people, like I am (I write with my right hand because my ultra-stupid teacher forced me to in 1979, but I do everything else with my left hand). Some additional info here and here.
Anyways, I am seriously thinking of starting playing some 2D adventure games from the ’90s again. The classic “Beneath a Steel Sky” is now a free download and you can run it via the ScummVM under any OS.
