Umm, I don't understand the sarcasm. But everyone knows I love me some Fallout, and nothing I said about Dead Island contradicts that so..yep..
Unless what you said was a joke and I didn't take it as such, then yep..I love it.

When I try online for Dead Island I may change my mind, but if you're playing solo it should be fine, even though this game is designed for co-op.
Storywise and characters, Dead Island is not close to the Fallout series. Both are similar in that you have to scrounge around for survival items/weapons/money to keep you alive longer.
Graphics, Dead Island looks a lot better than either Fallouts. Soundtrack, also goes to Dead Island.
Pace/movement for Fallout is pretty laid back. While Dead Island is not close to the CoDs, it is still frantic. Especially when the bigger enemies knock you down, the camera/screen view goes all over the place. Or when you're swarmed by a horde of the undead. Dead Island generates a nice level of fear throughout, so there's a good chance you'll panic and want to run the hell away a lot, which is not going to help your headaches.
With all that said, I'd hazard to guess that you probably wouldn't like this game. This due to the fact that I have friends who suffer that same motion sickness problem with fast paced shooter-type games.
I had to comment just because you said soundtrack goes to Dead Island. Don't listen to this guy..xD I won't even comment..

You may be. You should play it. As I said earlier as well, it's an okay game it's just not amazing (at least to me). One thing that people should understand about glitches is that they don't happen to everyone. The guy above had issues with both Fallouts and it ruined some of his view of it. Me? I had not a single glitch. Nor have I with Dead Island so far. It's always relative, no matter what, in gaming..
Quick note, should look at some reviews/videos too to help ya out. That's always helpful.
