Sorry it does not make sense to you but it happened. I guess a lot of things in this world would not make sense to people if they don't understand the world they live in.
The reason why some people get sick when playing games (I know a few people like that) is because when you’re playing a video game your eyes sense motion and your inner ear does not. When the two senses don't match up it can cause nausea. It is the same thing that happens with car sickness.
And yes he stopped playing AFTER he puked. If you were playing a video game and began to have a headache would you just stop playing? If I knew it was because of the video game I would but if I did not know the video game was the cause I probably would not stop playing. After a few different goes at first person shooters over the years and achieving the same outcome my brother no longer plays FPS games.
I am 25 and my brother is 22.
Dude, that's the best story I've heard all day. When I was younger I was playing Wolfenstein and Rise of the Triad on my 486 and felt the same way. I couldn't handle the fast movement and the FPS-style...years down the road after hours of Halo and Half-life I'm totally straight. I still have a Chinese friend who can't play FPS at all. It's really funny - if I play Halo at his place he loses it, he gets really woozy and dizzy and can't focus on anything.
