    I have been using 2 pretty old monitors for eons, dell 2405fpw and hp zr30w on both most games i am fine but certain ones like the first 2 metro games and the dishonered (which have started to play again )series give me motion sickness, i dont vomit or anything but do feel it. other games halo/gears 5, racing games doom 2016 etc zero problems. even VR games i dont feel it like boneworks and alyx. would a gaming monitor with high refresh rate make a difference?

    This is possibly a field of view issue. It seems Metro last light has a narrow FOV. So if there is a slider try and widen it out. Alternatively try narrowing it in games you don't feel it in and see if you then do.

    yeah both are old 16:10 monitors or as the kids call it 1200p/1600p dell its almost 15 years old now and hp is almost 10 years old.
    my gfx card is a 2080ti i don't yet own metro last light yet but the orignal metro i did try different fov which kinda helped but game randomly crashes for me.
