Epileptic seizures can be triggered by effects in video games. Among the triggers can be rapidly flashing lights and colors. This effect has been in the news lately in the wake of the release of Cyberpunk 2077, but the issue didn’t begin there. Here’s more from Waypoint:
A few days before the release of Cyberpunk 2077, one of 2020’s most anticipated (and controversial) video games, Game Informer editor Liana Ruppert revealed she’d ‘d experienced “one major seizure and felt several moments where I was close to another one” while playing the game. Cyberpunk 2077, like a lot of games, comes with a generic warning about “flashing lights and images” in its lengthy EULA (End User Licensing Agreement) that no one reads, but does not have a specific warning about this sequence or a way to skip it.
