It's not so much motion sickness for me, but every once and a while, with certain games I will get massive headaches while playing. Mostly seems to be sports games for some odd reason. lol

As for your situation, I know some people who normally get motionsickness while in the car or on a plane or anything can't play video games because of it. I'd assume you don't get motion sickness while driving since your on a car enthusiast website. lol. Maybe its something to do with your eyes. Do you wear glasses? Maybe you need them for something like this.

This is all speculation, I'm just throwing ideas out there since it would really suck since almost every game out now is a first person shooter. lol

Yeah I used to get that FPS motion sickness and headaches. Even more disturbing was my throat seem to swell up after a quick session... say, 30 minutes.

I found that if this was always the result of what I thought was too low of framerate. If your PC is too slow, try turning down the details and upping the framerate and see if you still get quesy. (sp?)

I know this is very unscientific of me but in the past, I've been able to do this and be able to play a game I could hardly look at before. I've no idea why.

Motion sickness is actually pretty common with video games and virtual reality. Just take a break every 20 mins or so lol
