Skyrim: does the first person POV make you want to throw up?

More than likely this is a FOV problem. A bad 1st person FOV can make people naesous, and has been reported as far back as Half-Life. Since the 360 popularised first person games on consoles and made those games be designed with consoles in mind first, PC versions are often configured to have FOV settings far below what is optimal for PC monitors and resolutions. Usually they're in the 60s range, when in reality they should be up around 80-90 or even higher depending on the monitor.

In Skyrim you can just open the console and type in fov followed by a number to change it (experiment with the ones I mentioned). You could also edit the .ini to permanently change the FOV.

Some first person games make me nauseous. Particularly the ones with pronounced up-and-down motion. Our brains kinda ignore that IRL, so first person games shouldn't overdo it. I've not played Skyrim but I never liked the first person view in Oblivion, I always used 3rd person.
