Nausea icon?

I like the idea, some possible icon images could be a barf bag or maybe glasses with swirly lens. If you do implement this icon, Mirror's Edge would be a great game to stick the icon onto.

[QUOTE=nesfan]Why does the icon have to benefit anyone in the first place? There's a "may contain cheese" icon, for Pete's sake. Who does that benefit?[/QUOTE]

Cheese enthusiasts.

Why are people even against this? First of all, this could be beneficial to a lot of people. Yeah, not everyone has motion sickness, but this could be great for those who do. Secondly, why do you even care? Is it really going to effect you in any way if Dave adds this new icon? I think not. So what if you don't like it? There's a simple solution for that: Don't pay attention to it.

Look what Mark came up with!

Pretty funny if you ask me!

Maybe the green could be a little brighter around the edges (where it's dimmed) so it would stand out more.

Once we get the icon straight, what games do you think deserve this?  I'll definitely be looking for ones that I claim made me nauseous.

I remember Klonoa 2 (PS2) inducing a sense of vertigo that actually wasn't unpleasant. That was a long time ago, though.

Left 4 Dead (1 or 2) played in split-screen co-op can be jarring because it cuts the framerate down from single-player mode.

[QUOTE=scotland17]I How about @ for eyes instead to indicate disorientation instead of being dearly departed? [/QUOTE]

Yeah, I agree with that. I liked the icon a lot but it does seem to make the character seem dead.

Here you go, version 2.0.  Now with less dead!

Could we get a bright version of the X-eyes?  I think I like that better.  It looks funny.
