    I remember that dinosaur hunting game scaring me as a kid. Carnivores or something? Not so much because it legitimately scared me, but because you couldn't really tell where the dinosaurs were until they were eating you. Sometimes they'd spot you from far away and could get behind ya.

    Haha those were fun. I should hunt down a copy.

    Just reminded me of Turok, that game was awesome.

    And on the topic of game phobias, I have none that I know of. Maybe a fear of putting time into MMOs that could go bankrupt at any time.

    You might not like 2 of the larger bosses in MH3 :o

    Also, look up Shadow of the colossus xD it makes you feel so small and insignificant

    I experienced a similar feeling when I played WoW. Just swimming deep into the large bodies of water would give me this eerie feeling and the sharks certainly didn't help.

    I'm veeery slowly making myself jump in the water to gut the monsters.
    I'm also collecting the guts outside of the quest so I can just start the quest and end it without wasting time running from the boss thing.
    Maybe it's not a phobia after all and I'm just riled up the same way I'd be after watching a horror movie like Jin-Roh said.
    It wouldn't even be so bad if it wasn't under water it feels like.
    If the are were more visible I'd be able to watch for boss monsters a little easier and be a little more confident that I can get out in time.

    And yes, I played a wee bit of Shadow of the Colossus and flailed insanely.

    EDIT: Dumb Wii U question, but is there a built in microphone in the gamepad? :/
    Someone offered to play MHU3 with me and I want to make sure there's a good way to communicate.

    I just thought of one game that shakes me up a bit sometimes actually. DayZ. Feel so vulnerable in that game sometimes, plus with my social anxiety problem and random people trying to converse with me it can get me a bit agitated.
