Nausea when playing game

Hello dr, I am a male at 24 years old, want to try to get advise on one problem that I had faced since primary school. When I try to play any first person games such as Counter Strike, Overwatch or other first person shooting, after 15mins to 30mins I will be having a nausea feeling. This will persist for the whole day. Sometimes I will vomit on the spot. I think it is not because of blood or killing another players, as I don’t have this symptom when I am watching horror movie or see bloody stuff. These few years, my condition got worse already. Instead of playing those first person view FPS game, now if I watched my friends playing those games or watching youtube movies on those games, I will feel nausea and this continues for the whole day. May I know if there is any solutions to it? Thank you.
