    Maybe you can use skyrim to get over your fear of spiders?

    I do believe a phobia is an irrational fear.

    If it were rational, it wouldn't be an issue.

    Being terrified is nothing like having a phobia

    I knew a guy who had aracnophobia and he would really freak out when he saw one

    like an above poster said, a real phobia is an irrational fear... what you have is just crepyness, fear... but not phobia

    i have a phobia of falling, and even in videogames, jumping out in a parashute (or without) or crashing a plane or simply jumping of a high cliff in skyrim still gives me that awefull feeling... even if its in a video game or a movie. what makes it worse is that i play on a 55 inch  (hehe. thats what she said... padum tiss)

    Insane!

    Is there no one around you guys who tells you the simplest stuff like: "Dude those arent real, dude. And if they were, dude, they are so tiny, dude, they wont do anything, dude. Dude, dude."

    ...

    It can be really hard to understand how irrational and completely paralyzing a phobia can be if you dont suffer from any yourself. Lets just say you should consider yourself lucky. image

    Hell, theres stuff like coulrophobia and agyrophobia, irrational and weird... but very real and possibly even handicapping.

    There's always a certain suspension of disbelief when it comes to video games, no matter how good or realistic the graphics are, but that doesn't mean they can't invoke the same feelings their RL equivalent would. Ask anyone who's ever been distraught over the death of a video game character. Hell, I don't suffer from any particular fear of heights (aside from the entirely sane fear of hitting the ground at high speed), but I can recall a few times while playing Mirror's Edge where I still had to stop a second and go "whoa". Of course, I consider that the mark of a good game :)

    The OP got his answer, now its just people saying his fear is stupid. This thread needs to be locked.

    Phobias are not the same as normal fear, though. It's akin to telling someone with diagnosed OCD to "stop worrying about it."

        I love spiders. Such enginuity. When I see a spider in my home I am happy. I know that spider in on the hunt for any nasty pest's that might happen to find its way into my domicile. That little guy wich you fear so much is keeping your home free of bugs, flies ect.. 

       I propose a new holiday... Give a Spider a Hug Day.

    I always found the spiders in Vanguard to be a bit creepy as a lil halfling or Raki. The spider caves there are awesome! I'm not really particularly bothered by spiders, but after a late night session a long time back I remember getting all itchy and creepy-crawly.

    Until that spider bites your two year-old, who then has to go to the hospital, get the swollen area lanced open with a knife, and then take some precautionary med's that taste like ballsack. True Story. All spiders in skyrim flee from me on sight.

    I have to explain this to many people too, some people really don't get it.

    All fears are stupid because they are created in your own mind and not in reality. The more you avoid them the more power they have over you. Its your own mind tricking you.

    This really is one of the most ignorant comments I've ever seen on mmorpg.com..

    Yes I have a dream… And its not some MLK dream for equality. …I wanna own a decommissioned lighthouse …And I wanna live at the top… And nobody knows I live there. …And theres a button that I can press, and launch that lighthouse into space.

    Sadly, that's saying quite a lot, with the rampant ignorance running around here...

    Yeah, I found this one particularly insulting though.

    Wow...I can't believe how many people are making negative comments about the OP's phobia because it's in a video game. Out of all the stupid stuff said on these forums, these comments are by far the stupidest.

    Thought about going with the -ist. I could still edit it, if you want the maximum carnage of grammer.
