After the latest reveal that there are motion sickness settings in the Shadowlands build I felt the need to ask…
How are you guys experiencing motion sickness in WoW?
As far as im aware, motion sickness is caused by an imbalance between senses and perception.
I can understand it in VR games… You’re perceiving yourself in VR running around with your head bobbing while back in reality you’re sensing that you’re fairly motionless and for some reason your brain hurts itself in confusion for -5 HP and now you have to hit the PokeStop before the gym.
But a game like WoW is a 3-dimensional construct projected onto a 2D-plane. Your peripherals can clearly perceive that both yourself and your environment are at rest… So how does this work?
Im assuming to experience motion sickness your brain needs to unconsciously believe it somehow entered the Twilight Zone. I may be putting too much faith in the human brain but I find it hard to imagine your brain can be convinced it was sent to the Shadow Realm and panic accordingly because stuff is moving on a computer monitor.
