Resident Evil 7 Causing Motion Sickness With And Without VR

Resident Evil 7

Resident Evil 7 is one of the games of 2017 that are a must play but it seems that the sickness is real with this survival horror game as gamers are reporting motion sickness when playing Resident Evil 7 with and without VR. It seems that the game’s small field of view and constant camera motion is resulting in motion sickness.

The sickness is due to the difference between what the eyes see and the ears here. Your mind may be convinced by what you see on the screen but other senses would indicate that you are sitting on the couch. According to Russ Frushtick from Polygon:

“The TL;DR is that the brain is often convinced by the motion in a game, but the inner ear is like, ‘Nah bro, you’re just sitting on your couch. This disagreement convinces the brain that you must be hallucinating, perhaps due to a poison you ingested. Therefore the brain sends alarm bells to your stomach to puke up the non-existent poison. Poof: motion sickness.”

This problem was first noticed at E3 2016 and Capcom has employed a couple of techniques to counter this concern but nothing seems to work as the problem is still there. I am sure that the issue is even more severe when it comes to Resident Evil 7 VR.

Honestly, I was not expecting this from the Non-VR version of Resident Evil 7 but the problem is there. This could make some hype for the horror game as it does make you literally sick but then again it is discomforting. Resident Evil 7 is a great game to say the very least and it is a great start of the year from gaming terms.

If you have not checked out the game yet, do so if you are not weak in the stomach and have experienced the franchise before. Let us know what you think about Resident Evil 7.
