MARATHON replay (Gaming)

I can change the platform and settings next time, but my original experience was on a screen that was either 9.5 or maybe 12 inches big. I suspect that has something to do with it.


For me, it was CRT vs LCD.

I replaced my last CRT in 2002. That was the last time I was able to play Marathon without getting violently ill within 10-15 minutes.

I've tried all platforms (Mac/PC/Xbox/iPad), and they all do it. Screen size is irrelevant.

Seems like this will NOT happen with the new game, it's built off a completely different engine.

Try it on an OLED. The way it generates and displays images is similar to a CRT, as well as pixel response time.
