Am I the only one who gets horrible headaches after playing for a half hour?

I seriously love playing the classic N64 Zelda with the 3D turned on, but I have to stop playing after only a short while because I get what can only be described as motion sickness (car sick). I've tried adjusting the 3D glider but it doesn't make a difference (unless I turn off 3D entirely). The symptoms last for up to an hour afterwards so it just isn't worth it for me to play the dang thing. I might end up just giving my 3DS away to my 12 year old nephew if I can't figure this out.

You're probably not used to it.

I've played 5 hours+ with 3D on in a single session and didn't experience any nausea/headaches.

You can always keep the 3D turned off you know.

some people just can't view 3D without side effects.. sucks that you're one of them but there's no reason to ditch the 3DS. The 3D is nice but it's the games that should matter. If you're not interested in any thing that's been announced and whatever may come further down the road then get rid of it.

Man I was in the same boat your in. Was worried I wouldn't be able to ever play games in 3d because my eyes never got used to it. But I kept playing even though it would hurt my eyes and make me dizzy. And eventually I was playing OOT on max 3D one day and suddenly realized it didn't bother me anymore.

You just need to "train" your eyes until they're used to it. Eye kinisthetics(Sp?) helped me out too, they're basically eyeball exercises that strengthen your eyes.

I start feeling a little ragged after 3 hours, but its not much more than I usually feel after playing a game for that long.

I played SF4 on the 3DS for 2 minutes and it left me woozy. xD
