Nope, run and gun is NOT optional in RAGE 2. If you try to cover shoot or stealth, you're gonna end up dead. This is one of those games that you have to stay constantly moving at a fast pace, there is no other way to play the game, it is not balanced for any other play style.
True. This was the only way to play DOOM on highest difficulty and this is the reason why I loved it.

Really? It was horrible experience for me. I don't like run and gun games. I could never enjoy a game where you are constantly running, jumping, shooting.

Probably cause you are experiencing motion sickness otherwise its one of the most rewarding styles of gameplay, its unique to a few games in its truest form.
Oh man you need to write to Bethesda and Avalanche. I think they'll scrap the whole game and cancel the release to port the game on another, slower engine, just for for you. Don't worry bro. Hugs.

If by bad luck that doesn't happen, maybe try writing to the UN.

Best of luck man.
Milage may vary. I *love* the fast pace. Ever since DOOM 2016 I've really enjoyed the momentum and I'm Super Excited for R2.

Have you tried increasing the Field of View? Too-Narrow FOV can induce simulation sickness. I have that issue and tend to put games that let me up to 110 or so.

And, DOOM 2016 has a free demo so you can download it and tune the settings to try it out without any cost.

Also, while not ideal for a PC gamer, sitting further away from the screen may help as well.

I don't get how is this a valid complaint.
if someone is suffering from psychological disease it is his problem. Why should we care about you handicap our experience foe the sake of your own hadicap.
If you are a weak ♥♥♥♥ and vomit from a shaking screen you should not be playing at all.
For those that do suffer from Motion Sickness, there are some things you can try, See if there is an option to disable headbob, and try increasing the field of view. I suffer from motion sickness in some games and almost always I can resolve it by disabling headbob if thats an option, and increasing field of view up past 75 degrees. Those that have not yet suffered from Motion Sickness in game, I hope you never find a game that triggers it, as it is exceedinly unpleasant to experience. I've encountered it in about 5 games in approx 25 years of gaming.

I think you need a better PC and or a faster monitor. playing with low fps and or low refresh tends to get many people sick. If you get that sick, dont play fast games. I dont know why you would demand them to make a game slower and with another engine to suit your issues.

He should also disable motion blur and depth of field.

Ok, this explains it all.... I rest my case...
"vid made me sick" then all vids make you sick.
"i dont like run & gun games" Then this is not the game for you. Stick with mine sweeper

He got sick on the vid, not the game so im sure no setting will help. He gets sick on any fast motion gameplay. Like i said above, this is not the game for him.

Play around with Motion Blur settings and FOV, as well as brightness settings in all of your games :)

Your motion sickness is related to your health. Game engine or game have nothing to do with it - it's only stimulant. Fast movements gives your brain information that you are moving but the rest of your body say that you don't move at all. Then your brain thinks that you got poisoned and try to fix it. Those symptoms are known to everybody who work in VR and fast paced first person perspective games.
Yup, this explains it pretty well. The brain either thinks that it's hallucinating due to poison or neurotoxin ingestion.

There's three ways to get motion sickness:

-Watching fast moving things too close(Your sight tells your brain you're moving, when the rest of your body thinks it isn't). 3D movies cause this as well. By sitting further back from your monitor so you see more of the static room infront of you, be in a well lit area and take breaks if needed.

Reading a book in a moving vehicle. Your body senses that you're moving, but your eyesight says that you are not. Also known as airplane sickness. The best way to deal with this is to open the airplanes window and look out. Or close your eyes.

Then there's getting seasick. When a person looks out at the waves, there's a lot of movement up and down which can confuse your brain as to which way that your body should be moving. The best way to avoid this is to not focus on the waves.

Now feel free to leave or get a treatment for your motion sickness. Bye

i'm just kinda upset that it's so fast paced, so much quick jumping, running, my eyes feel weird for some reason watching it. I played FC5 and didn't have any issue, not sure why this engine is causing it.

As far as I know there is no treatment, some games does it to me.
Dramamine. Though I dont know if you want to take a pill every time your going to play Rage
