Photosensitive Seizures?


Recommended Posts

For many years now, all videogames have included a disclaimer about the possibility of having an epileptic reaction to rapidly flashing lights or patterns.


Does anyone have any first-hand experiences with this? I'll even settle for anecdotal "friend-of-a-friend" stories. The symptoms of such an attack include:


lightheadedness, altered vision, eye or face twitching, jerking or shaking of arms and legs, disorientation, confusion, or momentary loss of awareness.


While I'm sure this is a CYA type disclaimer to protect the videogame publishers from liability lawsuits, I wonder just how small the "very small percentage" is.
