That VR sickness reminds me of the original DOOM game. I introduced it to a firefighter friend of mine many years ago. He played for a few minutes and promptly began to feel queasy (not from blood). I told him the feeling would pass, but it's the same mechanism as you described.

"Play is the highest form of research, a chance to discover who we are, or maybe who we want to become." - Albert Einstein
Those who play games know why they do. To discover worlds, to challenge our fingers, and our minds. To connect with friends, or maybe just to escape.
Games are about possibilities, the paths we take as well as the ones we don't.

Oh if VR can do those sickness I might reconsider myself from one. since I only got into a ship once in my life and I regretted every second of it.
then again, if your body has to emulate that you're moving and not doing so will give you sickness. Isn't it a bit tiring if you keep moving to emulate the VR?
Then again, I don't know how long can one person last in a VR session.

Got this feeling playing Just Cause 3 last night. Used to get it from the of CoD games back on PS2 as well, also the original Quake.

Don't give up on it just yet. I still have to try and see if I can get used to it yet. Motion sickness is different to VR sickness so you might not get it, if you can find a place to demo it it would be good. Also it doesn't happen with every game.

I'm in the middle of playing Dragon Age Inquisition at the moment so it'll be a while, but I'll let you know.
