Unfortunately, I've also recently started to notice that some games that never triggered motion sickness has started to do that.  Not bad but I imagine it is going to get worse.

I found that the final boss fight in Grim Dawn gave me motion sickness big time; so much so that I was unable to complete it in Ultimate.

I've known some teenagers to suffer from motion sickness in games, i don't think its just a matter of time.

If it's any consolation, I'll be 56 in September :)

From what I've read, it is pretty well established that age *is* a factor in the motion sickness from video games/VR/AR.  But there are a lot of variables, so your mileage may vary.  What I do know is that I never use to have an issue and now do, and while it's not bad at the moment, I suspect it will only get worse.

I went on a swing in the playground with my son today. It didn't take long until the guidance systems started having trouble. I pulled the chute pretty fast.
