I'll have to suggest he try it. A lot of first person games make him nauseous. Obviously I meant Half-Life 2 :facepalm Fallout 2 was still an RPG and was top down.
It is a fairly common problem.  It has gotten worse in recent years with the proliferation of console games.  The narrow FOV is fine on a TV that is 6 feet away, but it will cause nausea in a signicant percentage of the population when using a computer monitor at close range.  The fact that developers are being lazy and doing half assed console ports instead of adding configurable options for the pc makes it worse.

    One of my officers came into the squad room last summer saying, "It's hotter than a Mexican weather girl out there!" which prompted an extensive Internet search on the subject by the entire squad...

    Here are Irish women giving us a history lesson on underwear from past to present through demonstration. It is awesome because who doesn't like learning new things? Knowledge is power! And history is cool  :cool.

    Also, the dark haired young woman has stolen my heart, crafty thing ;).
