Motion Blur? Color Scheme? Headaches? ...Connected?

So, I was just watching this older Vsauce video (What Is Video ?? - YouTube) on video that had a specific section dealing with motion blur..or the lack thereof. It stated that things being "too HD, that is, high resolution and high frames per second, which results in no motion blur and no chance for our brains to create it (because the  images/video itself is too exact) can cause headaches. I bring this up because I remember some of my friends, at the beginning of this game's life cycle, were saying that they couldn't play this game because it was giving them headaches. This made me think of it.

I personally do not think or remember noticing any motion blur in Ghosts..only skipped frames most likely caused by lag. I also don't believe I've had any headaches (literally not figuratively...) caused by this game. What are your thoughts?

I added in the color scheme part because I feel that that the choice of a really dark and dull scheme either contributes directly or amplifies those circumstances in some way. Does it fit the style and message? ...Yeahh I suppose you could say that. Is it great in the long run? I'd say no.

P.S. The newer video I was watching, which is related and also a good view, is on the "resolution" of the human eye. What Is The Resolution Of The Eye? - YouTube ..Ahh link auto-changing to the title.. Anyway, feel free to ignore this part..cuz I'm not sure it applies to the actual discussion...

i tried messing with the nunchuck the other day and it made me feel dizzy and sick. when i went back to ccp my sensitivity had reverted from 18-5...my gawd idk how people play with low sensitivity. i thought something was wrong with my controller!

if im not mistaken the human eye (on average) can only see around 30 fps but i remember seeing hiccups in framerate on my old pc after i installed a new video card with my ex's brother. he said he was surprised i was seeing it cause most cant. i do have really good vision. ill check out the vid though.

As you know, I only use wiimote. If I take more than 3 days off - I get incredibly dizzy when I play again.

Freefall was MURDER on my eyes. PRO TIP: enable color blind filter. Seemed to help a bunch on that map. Still freaks my eyes out though. Too small, too HD I think...plus I get a lot of frame rate drops so it gets all weird.

I told a buddy of mine that if he gets seizures, even mild seizures, to NOT play that map.

He eats to much icecream and Hershey bars, and that's why he never gets fat..

I play on high, 34ish I think, and after a weeks holiday, I came back to feeling seasick when I played. Had to drop it to 20. Its just what your used to do. I dont feel comfy playing slow, this is the reason I never use lmgs, I can defend positions by moving a small area quickly, but I cant sit still and dont know how people do it.

Im gona start combat training on xbox on 1, lol, I cant aim for shit, its the up down that does me! I cant hold my aim for anything.

yeah i can definitely see more than 30 fps, though im not sure how much. i mean, if im looking at a video or game or whatever, its not like its a huge issue, and i get used to it, but i do notice.
