Nothing to do with age, younger people can get headaches or feel motion sick while looking at a screen playing a game. A guy in his 20s die recently because he played on his Xbox too much. I think he died of a brain hemorrhage.

Game developers are really stupid to not adjust FOV for PC users and it just shows the state of the gaming industry.

FOV really has nothing to do with it. It is just the camera movement. HL2 did the same to me at first. Then it went away.

favorites are sooooo broken. I will favorite weapons.. set them into quick keys.. and... as if by some magic force.. they become unlinked and/or change to the wrong damn hand IN THE QUICK KEY!

this game is pretty broken for melee for anything other then full on warrior.. and trying to play a rogue is just stupid. Your fighting the game more then the mobs in the game.

I've noticed that too. Stuff suddenly loses the quick key assignment or "favorite" status. Annoying, but not a game-breaker. Hopefully will be fixed in a patch.

I'd be happy if they just bolted on the inventory system from Oblivion in a patch because the one in Skyrim is sh*t.

Im having no issues playing a rogue like character, I use my Bow most of the time and can kill enemies in 2 shots. Hell I killed the first dragon quicker with my bow then my GF did with her Magic/Warrior character.

Some games make me nauseas, but thankfully, this one doesn't. Dead Space made me sick and so does Dungeon Defenders.

The map is still jacked up with the current fix in Surround (the icons don't match the locations on the map) and you also can't read anything with the menu objects so zoomed in. I guess I'll still wait for another updated fix while playing this on my HDTV.

Loving this game so far, I switched from mouse and keyb to 360 controller and find it much better though.

That seems to be what im going to do.. maybe make a ranger/rogue hybrid for stealth bow shots. I too had to switch to bows for the dragon kill, getting close was kinda impossible.
