I want to really enjoy this game in VR, but at the moment can only stomach it in 20 to 30 minute spurts. I've tried standing up also, which was worse. Being that the headset can adjust to your position away from the camera, does it matter how far away you are from the camera?
I have finished the entire game without VR, and it was fantastic. Now I want the experience of VR but need some settings help!
This is a very personal (YMMV) thing. Also, with more experience, I do believe one can become more accustomed to VR locomotion (the oft-mentioned "VR Legs"), although it seems like that doesn't apply to everyone.
I dislike angle turning, but for some people it is necessary to avoid motion sickness. You might want to try it again and see if it helps. Same with the VR filter, blocking motion in the peripheral vision can help some people. For me, I have stuff at normal and I left the smooth turning in the default (IIRC) 2. I have heard standing is a definite no-no unless you are very comfortable in VR.

In any PSVR game with positional tracking of the headset, you can only be so far away from the headset before it will start "swimming" (usually swaying towards/away from the camera, with the amount of swaying increasing the further you get away). If you are getting any of that it could definitely be contributing to making you sick. If you are not, there should be no problem. Of course any major tracking issues are guaranteed to introduce nausea so if you get any of that it is best to power off the PS4 and try again, which often eliminates tracking issues altogether.
Generally speaking when there is VR locomotion, the slower you make it the easier it should be. So you can also try ratcheting everything down and see if that helps.
HTH... it is really a transformational experience, compared to playing on a television.
