    I purchased a week ago a game named : half life 2.

    first I downloaded the demo and the game was very very nice so I bought it.

    now everytime I play the game, after one hour or so I become sick, headaches, I feel bad bad bad.

    every time after 45-60 minutes.

    what is happening to me?

    this ain't a joke but I sure would like to know if someone knows what is happening...

    am I changing into something :D

    My god infinity, I purchased half-life 2 on December. Don't worry your problem happens to most people who play the half-life series. One girl in my class says that her head spins when she plays it and she goes to sleep immediately, and a boy says that it was so puzzling he almost fell asleep!

    As for me, yeah, I play one hour and My head aches and I'm sweating a small beat and I feel like someone's beaten the hell out of me. But I still continue playing and have immense fun!

    The problem is that the Half-Life series immerses you too much into the game, so your head spins. four years ago, I was so immersed into half-life 1 that I began acting like some the characters in the game!

    Man, they gotta sue Valve ;)

    You're turning into a half-lived animal; one that's half into half-life and half into the real world, just like me! :D

    So wake up, wake up and smell the ashes.

    Regards,
    Firecat

    if there is a demo, I'll try it, why not.

    Thanx

    I can play FPS all day without getting sick or anything, but my friend gets dizzy too. He has motion sickness and all the changing of views makes him dizzy. Maybe you have motion sickness

    My head slightly aches sometimes and I feel dizzy but then I'm just a kid and maybe I'll handle it better as I grow up...

    If you are having motion sickness, there is a simple solution - there are motion sickness pills, there is an herb called GINGER that works fine for most people and finally there are bracelets or wristbands, if you prefer, that will stop almost all motion sickness. ( Some people have used a coin held in place with an elastic hairband, No kidding:) - that is the acupressure point that helps relieve nausea.

    Myself, it almost sounds like the feeling you get in a small plane when the d**** pilot decides to fly half way upside down, g-force! LOL!

    Maybe you should strap your self in to your chair, your mind won't be constantly thinking you are in danger of falling.

    At least I hope that is all it is!! Try one of the first three - let me know if it helped, if not, I will look a little deeper for you, Infinity! :)

    Hey, you know that I am very respectful.

    If you mean late at night by saying 'late here' then have a good sleep! Else have a great day ;)

    Best Regards,
