Virtual Reality

Some players experience motion sickness when using a VR headset. It varies from person to person, but if you are prone to motion sickness in automobiles, you may be susceptible.

Pause the game, take off the headset and gain your bearings.

Having the headset positioned on your head properly can alleviate some of the most common motion sickness triggers by making the experience easier to endure. Adjusting your headset fit and the settings ensures you move your eyes as little as possible and goes a long way in preventing dizziness and headaches in VR land.
