Video Games And Headaches

Recently got a digital copy of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited.  Played it a few times and each time would get a headache.  I do get a lot of headaches at random times so didn’t think much about it.  Decided not play it for a few days and try again to see for sure it was the game.  Then got thinking about other games over the years that caused them.  One I know for sure is the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.  The camera movement was the problem for me in that game.  It would sway when the character ran.  It was the same thing in Gears of War.  Then here was a game on the Dreamcast where the light patterns hurt my heard.  Think this is the same thing happening in Tamriel Unlimited.  Have played many hours in Skyrim with no trouble. Tamriel Unlimited has pretty much the same movement but there are a lot more stuff going on screen.  It would kind of suck if I couldn’t play the game.  On the plus side didn’t pay too much for it.  If I did have it on disc would just give it to a friend.
