Sometimes when playing first/third-person games, I start feeling nauseous and motion-sick. How can I prevent this so I can enjoy Minecraft and other games again? [more inside]
Help me ID/find this game: it may have been playable in-browser. If downloadable, it was free and probably worked on winxp. It might have only been at a demo/tech demo state, but it was a 3d first person puzzler where you aim and it would show you the trajectory of where a ball would bounce and you could then teleport to the end point of the trajectory? The idea was that you'd have to figure out which surface/angle to bounce off in order to get to a goal destination. May even have been posted to mefi. [more inside]
Looking for first-person narratives from undocumented immigrants to the United States. [more inside]
I'm looking for an online video from a couple years back. It is a short scifi movie shot in the first person, which features a scientist waking up in a lab, looking out the window to see a giant tower shooting a beam into the sky, and then grabbing a black cube with lights on it, which appears to have some sort of strange powers. It was hosted on a website which had some other seemingly related material. I don't know if it was from an ARG, or a standalone video, or what, but I'd really like to watch it again.
Any advice on how to switch from writing in second person to writing from a first- or third-person viewpoint? [more inside]
Help me prove my friend wrong. What are some works of fiction (novels, short stories, even poetry) written by women, but from the first-person point of view of a male character? [more inside]
What are some good movies, based on books written in First Person, that don't use Voice Over narration at all? [more inside]
French-film-filter: A movie shot entirely from the point of view of the main character, hands reaching out from underneath the camera and all. Early 90s, I think. Remembered spoilers/details below [more inside]

What recent(ish) games offer a Deus Ex like experience?
My niece loves video games like Okami, Spyro, and Dog Island because they let you control an animal as the main character. Recommendations for more games like this? (Wii/PS2, please) [more inside]
Literature filter: Novels in the form of a first-person diary (day-by-day entries, or entries set against calendar dates). Can you name any good examples, particularly contemporary? I'm aware that it was relatively common format in earlier novels (for example, Dracula). [more inside]
I really like novels written in a squirrely first person voice such as Vernon God Little, Jernigan, and even Poe's Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym. Any recommendations?
