So, I think a game that puts you in a small, dark space suspended at 30,000 feet with No Exit (thank you, Sartre!), no weapons, plenty of spiders, homo-sapien-eating-slime-aliens, snakes, goblins, wolves and lobsters could be the Next Big Thing!!!
heads off to write up game idea

Sadistic. I like it. :D
And LM, rats make very wonderful pets. (I've had four in my lifetime). ;)

Obsession could almost be construed as the opposite to a phobia, so I guess we should be more obsessive if we're to fight our fears... :D
On the subject of psychological behaviour and video games, one thing I do find incredibly amusing, is the way most software companies lure the male of the species with scantily clad females, but if you think about it, most men will get more obsessed with a computer game than with a women anyway... with the exception of Kylie though :D

This must be true:
Pong cured my fear of tennis.
Space Invaders cured my fear of 8x8 pixel aliens and plasma weapons.
Tomb Raider cured my fear of women in shorts, bristling with armaments.
All I need now is a cure for my fear of MicroSoft, supermarkets, car-parks and continental shifts and I may, yet, become a rounded human being. :D

Ahh yes... but games also give you new phobias to deal with!:(
Until I played Thief, if someone were to say the words "bug beast" to me, I would smile and think of a guy in a rubber suit. Ofcourse now I only have to think of those creepy insects form Thief and I get shivers down my spine! :o

Doom was never meant to cure a phobia. . .
. . .That's how I relieve stress.
