Deathloop is the talk of the town right now, and even Hideo Kojima of Metal Gear Solid and Death Stranding fame couldn’t help jumping on the hype train. Though he’s a little concerned that it’ll, well, make him motion sick.
Deathloop, the latest shooter from developer Arkane Studios, is all about high-flying antics and time travel. It’s the kind of game that’ll surely test your noggin as well as any spatial awareness issues you might have. Kojima, who’s known for mind-bending games himself, is eager to give Deathloop a try. The trouble is, he’s not sure he can handle its first-person perspective.
“Deathloop. It’s a time loop game with an interesting system,” Kojima said on Twitter. “I want to play it, but it’s an FPS, and I’ll probably get 3D-sick. Hmmm.”
He went on to claim that beyond FPS games, loads of activities make him sick: swings, theme park rides, and even riding at the front of buses!
Check out Kojima’s comments for yourself below.
I’ve always get sick even though I was in the gymnastics team. On field trips, I sat at the front of the bus. I get sick on the swings. At amusement parks, I couldn’t go on the teacups, viking rides, flying carpets, octopus rides, or anything that spun. Roller coasters are fine. https://t.co/QfShUwyd2t

Many of Kojima’s peers and fans shared similar sentiments or tips on how to not hurl while playing Deathloop. Or they chimed in with a cheeky joke
You should still play it. What’s a little bit of bodily fluid?

I’ve gotta say though, I don’t really understand how a 1st person camera can effect you and a 3rd person camera won’t. Either way, 3D sickness would be the worst thing in the world for me.

You learn something new all the time with Hideos tweets – I would never had guessed that someone like him can get motion sickness from a type of game

Increase the field of view and play on PC! It helps with motion sickness! pic.twitter.com/jVAVZKrcLT

Oh, and the official Deathloop Twitter account had some advice for Kojima too.
Drink lots of water, take breaks when you need to, and watch out for Julianna

Hopefully Kojima can find a way to play, without getting nauseous, of course!
