Motion sickness in video games

I never thought I would see the day when I get motion sickness from playing certain video games (katamari damacy reroll for the switch), anyone else have had this unfortunate thing happen? Really sucks bad..

I get it sometimes from early (primitive) FPS games, like Wolf 3D and Doom, but it never bothered me at all back in the day.

I've heard this from a few of my friends that started feeling it with certain 3D games.

Things like Skyrim or Fallout 3 with it's FPS really messed with them, but games like Uncharted or Horizon or Breath of the Wild are fine.

It sucks, but luckily I spend my time playing OBEY and most 16-bit era games anyway, so I'm unsure if it would effect me since I'm pretty meh on FPS style games. :)

When I am playing I typically never get motion sickness in game, but when watching someone else play, and looking up and down away from the game often, I get very motion sick very quickly. When I worked on FPS games it was constantly a problem when doing long play-through-reviews of our levels :-&
