Interesting problem.  Seems the eyes confuse the balance mechanism of the 
inner ear, resulting in a sort of motion sickness.  

Btw, I know the guy Tony that they talk about- he always had to bow out of 
my freshman dorm's (before I was at ISU...) Quake bouts.  Small world...  
It was funny to see him try to play quake/doom, and then walk in a 
straight line. :)
