>game has a slider for making spiders more abstract and less detailed so game journos dont pee their diapers in horrorepic
>>519547334Whats wrong with that anon
>>519547583why would you include giant detailed spiders if not to be fucking terrifying? arachnophobia isn't a disability or some shit it's common sense, if you give an option to opt out of that why not just have an option for horror games to make all areas well lit and all enemies look like cute teddy bears?
>>519547334I have fucking Acrophobia (fear of heights) and I still played through and enjoyed both the Mirrors Edge games.
this is such a retarded thing to bitch about
>>519547772because some people pretty much just shut down when they see a spider, it isn't just a “oo aa spooky spider haha i got spooked”The horror game equivalence would be correct if this was a game about spiders, but it isnt
>>519547982>because some people pretty much just shut down when they see a spiderSeeing how that's the main purpose of a spider is to stop things in their tracks, that sounds like a good thing.But fuck them in this game. "Oh hai anon I saw you sleeping in this remote location, so I decided to break my sleep cycle during the day and stalk you until night time."
>>519548243But people don't pay survival games to be too terrified to continue playing, they play them for fun
>>519547982then don't play the fucking shrinking game if you don't want to see oversized house creatures
why would you want to change this?
>>519548396>you can't make the survival game feel like a fight for survival it needs to be a little cozy game with blob creaturesi can't tell if you're being retarded ironically or actually are
>>519547334>games having more options is a bad thingretard
>>519547982>x scares me>hmmm today I will play the game containing lots of x>nooo Im scared of x game devs why do you do this
>>519548440Why not?What if someone wants to play the shrinking game and not see the big scary spiders? They'll be glad they have a totally optional slider to make them not scary>>519548659?being scared is not a requisite of survival games
>>519548737and the game devs include an option to make x less scary, so now you can playsuch nice devs
>show the sliders>don't show an actual comparisonCome on, man. Get it together.
>>519547334Can't believe this bros.For years spiders have been ostracized.We even get rid of pests like flies and stuff...Totally not fair!
>>519548758because the entire appeal of a game based around the idea of being shrunken is giant versions of regular things. whats the fucking point if you don't actually want to see the giant things? are they going to have a setting for all the enemies and hazards? are they just going to let you turn the entire game into blobby early 3d game models? are they going to keep focusing on retarded options like this instead of just implementing actual convince options?its just the idea that someone whose deftly afraid of giant bugs would also be into a game based on shrinking, the fuck is even left in the concept for that kind of person?
>>519548871It removes the legs and eyes I think, makes them cute goofy things
>>519548440Why would someone not play it if you can just turn the spiders off?
>>519548396You pay them (or don't) to play what the developers wanted to sell you. Luckily, the devs wanted to sell them to people who cannot be arsed to fix an actual irrational fear by interacting with a real spider. Yes, dipshits, arachnophobia is an irrational fear. Humans aren't deathly afraid of venom, they're afraid of the crazy, spaztic, almost unreal motion of their legs.
This might sound stupid but I kind of wish I had a phobia that could be triggered by media (arachnophobia, trypophobia). I love it when games scare me but they rarely manage it; an exploitable phobia sounds like an effective shortcut to doing so. And trying to face such a phobia and perhaps even overcoming it by playing the game in short bursts sounds like a compelling challenge.>>519547774To what extent did that game trigger it?
>>519547334>super not okayWho the fuck wrote this shit? An 8 year old?I can sorta get it if it's one of those rubber prank props but imagine being so bitchmade you're offended by virtual spiders in your screen that you're aware are fictional since you're playing a fucking game.
>>519547334all the complains in this threads are irrelevant as the spider slider only makes it WORSE
Why do you care if it doesn't affect you?
>>519549009because if they're scared of a spider's spindley legs i cannot see them not shitting themselves over literally anything else related to the conceptfuck's sakes the individual blades of grass could be mistaken for long legs, are they going to have a 'no grass' option? can i turn on flatworld and just have a empty span of dirt to run circles on?
>>519549197>i cannot see them not shitting themselves over literally anything else related to the conceptThat kind of sounds like a personal problem specific to you more than anything.
>>519548965arachnophobia is much more common than ant-phobia or any other bug related phobiaalso what's left is a survival game people might want go play without having to see giant spiders>>519549024there's nothing wrong with that
>>519548843x devs are a bunch of faggots.
>>519548871>>519547772this is the most censored one
post screens of the spiders with slider up and down
>>519548871>>519548983I miss the days when /v/ made original content
>>519549242if your irrational fears turn themselves off in such a rational way as to not get afraid if its literally not labeled a spider then it sounds like you don't actually have a phobia you're just a whineass bitch crying for attention
>>519547334>dude like totally not ok :^[
>>519547982To be fair, I shut down in any game with jumpscares. Ironic, because I love horroe novels and manga, but even hint at a jumpscare and I'm out.
OP frankly you sound like a woman, exaggerating everything and taking it to the extremeSome people don't like spiders, deal with it>>519549267x devs?We had defined x as spiders, I don't understand your post
>>519547334What enemy do you fear to the point of paralysis /v/?For me its giant hydras or snakesCould never even get close to the hydra boss in ds
>>519549309>unironically makes it look scarier
>>519549158if the game launches missing actual quality of life options but has this shit then yes i would say it affects me because they wasted dev time on something so retareded.
>>519549317Actually that's literally what a phobia is, it's genuinely not my fault your mind is incapable of piecing together a scenario that you didn't come up with yourself.
>>519549309Everything between full slider and no slider is terrifying
>>519547982man up you fucking pussy
>>519547772>dev does what they want with game - removes nothing>gaymer still complainslmao, just shut it down anon. you've been on the computer too long.
>>519549452man up about accepting options that dont cater to you, pussy
>>519549267They're intelligent capitalists for once. My guess is they looked at how one of the first public mods for Skyrim was replacing the spiders with bears and decided it'd be good to do something like that out of the gate. But since this is /v/ someone has to rage and shriek autistically because the world isn't working in the exact manner they want.
>>519549309These are all fucking terrifying
>>519549434Except this is simple to add.
>>519549434It takes literally less than an hour to set this sort of shit up you absolute mong
>>519549434This took an intern like two hours of his 12 hour slave shift to do.
>>519549309just a few weeks ago we had the nintendo leak frenthat's pretty fucking OC if you ask me
>>519549309upper right is the worst
>>519549539>>519549583>>519549597and it takes a minute to change a faulty hitbox or a uneven edge that catches the player. that shit actually affects the gameplay, this is the equivalent of a shitty cosmetic skin and does not. if they spent even a second on this and not any QoL work then its a complete fucking waste.
>>519547334Spiders are for hugging and caring
>>519547982I'm pretty sure they don't. I would bet money that most arachnophobia is bullshit attention seeking faggotry. It's normal to not like heights, spiders, spooky ghosts etc, but pretending you're speshul by calling it a phobia is gay as fuck
>>519549925Oh yeah you know more than the countless experts that have recorded this phobia over the course of centuriesOf course, I'm on /v/, the source of all human knowledge
>>519547334This game helped me overcome my arachnophobia by letting me slaughter orb weavers and wolf spiders. If you play with arachnophobia mode on your only hurting yourself.
>>519547334...I'll be the judge of that, whats the spiders actually look like?
>>519549309The 4th one is more horrifying than the full model
>>519550018Oh fuck off. The "countless experts" get paid to interview and counsel people about bullshit.I have yet to encounter anyone in who goes into a genuine catatonic state at the sight of a spider. The worst is just a mild spook, but oh no, you're speshul you have arachnophobia.
You know what the funny thing is? my mother, like many women, will freak out over a little spider, but if it's a big cellar spider or a taratula she doesn't care, they just don't trigger that irrational fear for her when they're large like that.
>>519547772>>519548243>>519548440>>519549452>>519549925Imagine being this fucking ignorant holy shit, not only is this an optional setting for people that suffer from phobia but you retards are literally fucking redneck tier ignorant and are actually bitching about a non issue, if you dont have arachnophobia don't fucking use the setting are you literal drooling retards just looking for anything to complain about?
Imagine being such a braincuck that you are afraid of fictional animals.
>>519549309>hmmm people get scared from the unpredictable movements of a spider>i know! lets take away its legs so you literally can NEVER read its movements!anyone who thinks this would be helpful is fucking retarded
>>519550256>I didn't meet anyone with arachnophobia therefor it doesn't existYeah I didn't meet anyone with cancer so it definitely doesn't exist does it, kys you literal subsimian IQ mutt.
>>519550427>psychology cuck thinks his made-up mindscares are comparable to real diseaseslmao
>>519550256If I say that I've met several, does my anecdote cancel out your anecdote?
>>519549925no, my mom would chase me around in the dark with spider toys as a kid and now seeing big spiders triggers a fight or flight response (i usually run out of my room). she did it in halloween stores, at home, she would wake me up with them, etc
>>519550594your mom sounds based and you sound like a pussy
>>519550637i would agree if it happened when i was 10-12, but it started when i was 3. it's not like "ooooh my mommy abused me" or anything like that, it just caused a strong fear in me
>>519547334>super not okay
>>519547334Imagine letting your life be ruled by an irrational fear instead of confronting it and overcoming it like an adult, which is the very thing that psycologists and theripists will recommend to anyone with an irrational fear. But no, lets just coddle people instead because that seems to be working fucking wonders for society these days.
>>519550326The only sane person in this thread
>>519549041Not him but I definitely get triggered playing games like Deep Rock Galactic on high terrain difficulty, certain 3D Mario levels, and especially pic related.
>>519547334>If you're super not okay with that
>>519547982>because some people pretty much just shut down when they see a spiderAnd thats why natural selection is a thing and humans fucked that up
>>519547334the game is literally 30 minutes long
>>519550741>life ruinedTurning off spiders in a videogame is a ruined life?
>>519550326>what is exposure therapynonono lets just hide the scary objects that'll fix it i'm sure
>>519547334That sounds hilarious.
>>519550881Something that takes place in a clinical setting not at random with videogames
>>519547982bullshit. most people are scared of spiders
>>519550514Damn a neckbeard basement dweller just denied scientific psychology studies how will doctors ever recover!
>>519547982>because some people pretty much just shut down when they see a spiderI'm terrified of spiders but not videogame spiders, they're one of the most boring and unoriginal enemies in games.And how retarded do you have to be to not be able to distinguish real world from videogames?
>>519550980Being scared of spiders is not the same as having a phobia of spiders
>>519550773>scared of the bridge part in hl2
>>519550427Except that an actual disease is provable. A phobia can just be a cunt faking it for attention. Of course I've met people who SAY they're afraid of spiders. But have any frothed at the mouth and passed out when a daddy long legs strolled by? >>519550571So how did you know they weren't faking it?
>>519549309It just looks more alien and demonic the less you make it look like an actual animal.Top left looks cute. Everything else either looks like an alien tripod or a floating demon head.
>>519550952it seems like a digital experience with no risk of physical harm is probably the actual best place to face a fear. i'm not really sure how someone functions if even that shuts them down or can't even help them cope
so is the game any good?
>>519551103>how do they functionMost people don't deal with spiders as a day to day part of modern living
>>519550880Ruled, not ruined.
>>519547334what is the actual behaviors of wolf spiders in the game? i have a base right near the battletoads statue and every now and then there is this massive wolf spider that patrols a wide area while running really fast. there is a wolf spider den under this wooden plank nearby but i can't tell if the patrolling spider is the same one that lives down there, or if it's just getting spawned like a random mob
>>519551045>everyone is faking for attention so I have to be cruel to everyone just in caseYou're the most mentally ill of anyone in this entire conversation
does this game have giant women? haha
>>519549309it only makes it worse each time what the fuck
>>519551045Being scared of spiders is not the fucking same as a phobia you literal mongoloid piece of shit how hard is this to grasp, I don't give a flying fuck about the pussies you meet irl or in the mirror just because you haven't met anyone that has it or just because people can fake it doesn't mean it doesn't exist are you in primary school or something?>Except that an actual disease is provableAnd phobias don't exist? are you actually retarded? you may as well classify the majority of mental illnesses as non existant as well while you're at it. why am I even argueing with 50 iq subhumans on this shit board is beyond me.
I got aracnophobia and still think thats retarded.Would shit my pants trying to play it.
>>519551159Turning off spiders in a videogame is being ruled?
>>519547334all that work in making realistic moving spiders and they can even climb up walls
>>519550773Cool, thanks anon. Do you find it an interesting challenge to overcome or does it just make you want to stop playing?
>>519547982BROS WHERES THE CUT OF HONEY I SHRUNK THE KIDS WITHOUT THE GIANT SPIDER! THE MOVIE DIDN'T SAY IT WOULD HAVE A GIANT SPIDER WTF
>>519550594your mother sounds based and you sound like a pussy faggot
>>519549041Not him either but I'm afraid of heights and never have a problem in games unless I actually fall a long distance and that shit makes me cringe and gives me a little bit of a fight or flight response, even in an unrealistic game like minecraft.
>>519551248Yep. Most mental illness is probably bullshit.
I'm not scared of spiders at all, but holy fuck turning a corner and seeking on of those fuckers in this game is pretty fucking terrifying.
>>519549256If one hypothetically had fear of spiders that was way past the point of logical aversion or disgust one should seek professional help.
The spiders in this game never scared me. And that's only the tutorial boss.
Theres nothing wrong with more options. I would rather it be this than remove or alter something for everyone. With that said, yeah its super funny. Imagine being so fragile a video game gives you PTSD.Also I hope in the future this keeps getting more and more traction. I wanna be able to remove the entire game because I'm so scared of everything and just jump straight to the credits, except I'm creditphobia so those need to go too.
>>519547334Why are spiderfags like this?It's the only phobia you ever see people screeching about when it comes to gaming. You don't see vertigofags complaining about heights or long drops.>>519547774You don't see Claustrofags complaining about confined spaces.
>>519550879>now you can expand your legacy by buying additional dlc content!
>arachnophobe>live in Australialife is suffering
>>519551526>100 dollars an hour to some quack to get over not liking spiders>or I can turn the spider legs off in the videogametough choice
>>519551285In a way it is, it's a sign of a very unhealthy association since games are not reality. If it's so disturbing that you need to remove them from a medium that is not based in the real world then you should seek a therapist. Digital fictional media should not affect you in reality, this is especially true for video games and movies.
I'm super not okay with the toxicity in this thread
>>519551659> Digital fictional media should not affect you in realityThe entire purpose of media is to inspire emotions in reality
>>519547334this game has so much potential and it kind of sucks they have released it in such an unfinished state. i would like to see rain, seasons, ways to get glass to start fires and you should be able to eventually explore other yards. imagine there being a yard with a dog running around and it's like godzilla to the player
>>519551726Why release it when its finished when you can release it now and get all the money for 20% of the work?
>>519551612i wouldn't say i'm an arachnophobe but if a fucking wolf spider sprung outta one of my AC vents when i started driving i'd shit my intestines out before crashing the car in hopes of killing us both
>>519551542what game?>>519551591i instantly thought of ME3 when i got to this part too
>>519547334are you able to get to the house in the game?
>tfw Acrophobia>Play games>Jump off cliff>Get tense as fuck and feel like I'm about to get light headed until I hit the ground
didn't turn spiders off because i'm not a fucking pussy but jesus christ it scared the ever living fuck out of me when it appeared in the game in the middle of the nightfucking wolf spiders
>>519551713A phobia is NOT simply a temporary emotional response. It is a form of trauma and shouldn't be happening with media.
>>519551759>wolf spiderYou and any sane human being would be rightfully afraid, yes. Those things, redbacks and sydney funnelwebs are NASTY fuckers. Especially the funnelwebs, with their reputation for hyper-aggression and all.
>>519551614Unless you got raped as child by spider if you get into shrieking fits over spider you need help. Especially since actual spiders or images of one could pop up in ones life. Also therapy is covered by many nations health plans or private insurance so that's an option.
>>519551759can't you just smash it with your hand?
>>519552092>USA>affordable healthcare of any sort
>>519549309>The base spider is some cutesy gay anime spiderIt's not even a scary base spider, throw some wolf spiders or tarantulas with gross slime coming from it's fangs. If you get triggered by cartoony spiders, you're a fag, there is no exception
>>519551542>VindictusWhy did you remind me of that game. I fucking loved it and they've massacred it.
>>519552109would probably fail to kill it in one strike and end up with a frantic 5 legged spider sprinting and bleeding all over your dash and/or falling into your lap and biting your dick.
New gen kids full of fucking pussies, I played scary games all the time as a kid til I eventually got over it
>>519552315you love playing terrible games bro
>>519552313The game has wolf spiders, they're fucking terrifying.Also the thing that is lost in images is the way the spiders move, and shake grass, you see the grass moving before they arrive and they're rapid little fuckersI would make a webm as well but honestly cbf
A spider slider is far less damaging to your life than letting a therapist anywhere near you
I uninstalled it cause of the spiders. I am 35. BRB, killing myself.
>>519552109Better to use your phone like a guillotine and cut the fucker in half >>519552560What if your therapist is a hot milf and she sucks the anxiety out of you if you catch what im meaning
>>519552472It was pretty good for it's time.
>>519547772the eyes creep ed me out a bit.
>>519552560If you think a therapist is damaging then you're an idiot.
>>519552410I miss when games could still scare me.That heart-pounding fear and tension I felt taking on the Gohma in OOT as a 12-year-old, pushing through that fear and the exhilaration and relief of managing to beat the boss despite it... that shit was what got me into gaming in the first place. My little kid heart was pounding in my chest like a drum for a good hour. I'd played shit like Mario World and the like on a mate's SNES, but I was never truly into the hobby until I experienced that.
>>519552313have you played the game? there the wolf spiders are twice the size and fucking screech like demons and are as loud as a horse while running
>>519552472The gameplay was great, it was everything else about it that was bad. Well besides the music, that was good too.
>>519550326listen i have no problem with the setting and i honestly think it is a good idea.That being said if you are so scared of something that you need to damper it in a video you are in fact a huge fucking faggot pussy and should probably be castrated.Im certain this setting is catered to little girls though which is fine.
>>519547334>If you're super not okay with thatClearly trannies are behind this
I had to work with a woman who had (has, I guess) arachnophobia and she got freaked out by some spiders we put up on Halloween so I went around and moved them away from where she sat.It's annoying that other people have stupid problems, but we should still treat people compassionately. Not liking something does not release you from your moral obligations to others. That said, you have no obligation to be someone else's fool. If people are taking advantage of your compassion, give them the sword.All of these things are true.
JESUS FUCKING CHRIST
>>519552929Shoulda told that w*man to move them herself spoiled hoe
>>519552929Should have gone to the pet store and bought a bunch of pet tarantulas and set them free in her house
I would how people here would react to a "black people" slider or a "trans slider", because i have arachnophobia and my reaction to spiders in games is way more tame than /v/s reactions to black and trans people in games.
>>519553249I wish real life had a black people slider.
>>519553158Ur an ugly UI
>Friend group excited to play>only two of us can even get the game to not crash on log in>Wind up just playing another DnD session insteadPATCH FUCKING WHEN.
>>519552929Agreed, apart from the moral obligation. You don't do it because you're obligated. You choose to do it. You're under no obligation to cater to their fears and hangups. It's nice to treat them with compassion and respect for their feelings, but it should in no way be expected of you.
>>519553348later this month
>>519552929>>519553371disagree. Weak men should be killedWeak women shouldnt be bredIf you think different you fall into the first category
>>519552951>>519553346Commando thinks he's sneaky
>>519552929should have worn a spider costume and raped her
>>519552951>>519553090>>519553163>>519553346THIS JUST MAKES IT WORSE
>>519547772>arachnophobia isn't a disabilitywow bigoted much?
Games should have a Caligynephobia Safe Mode slider that makes attractive women in the game uglier and more fully clothed so trannies can play games with hot girls without getting triggered by a reminder of what they'll never beAt the max setting, all the women in the game have pink undercuts, horn-rimmed glasses, and five o'clock shadowsAt the max setting
>>519547334why the fuck would you buy a game about bugs if you're afraid of bugs
>set slider down to 0>laugh at cute little blobs of fluff floating around>then something bugs during the gameplay and due to race conditions the game loads default models>you know you are at spider territory but you expect cute fluffball>yfw it loads full-fledged model and you face it
>>519553927I thought the game was about shrinking
>>519554053once you're small enough you're just a human bug ripe for extermination
>>519553457M8, that's so far removed from this topic I can't even follow your train of thought.
>>519554050good way for the devs to get canceled by some twitter tranny with 10 different ailments in their bio
>>519553457People who say things like this would always be the first up against the wall if they actually did it
>>519553850but...It kinda already does. Except we can't have min setting.
>>519554053Dont worry anon your gf already has that game
Is it better or worse than Supraland?
>>519554117>Doctor, what does my son have? >Everything.
>>519547772homophobia filter when
>>519554140Well yeah, if we had a safe mode for it then we could go back to games having realistic women who enjoy being sexy instead of only scowling dykes whose tits are two cup sizes smaller than the reference model's
>>519550326>but you retards are literally fucking redneck tier ignorant and are actually bitching about a non issuesums up /v/ pretty well good job
>>519552736Good luck with that job when they screen you
>>519547772Suck my dick, phobias are having the fear to an irrational degree. Even non-venomous spiders cause me to break out in cold sweats and get extremely tense muscles, basically frozen. But I'm fine with snakes, heights, public speaking, etc. It's literally like malformed neural pathways
>>519549925Spiders legit give me a paralyzing fear. Yes, I have rationalized it and yes I know they're most harmless. Dunno, just a reaction I have. I hate them.
>>519554863What megacorp hellhole do you live in where employers can just look up your mental health history
>>519555785It's wasps for me. I'll play with spiders, I might yell and swat at it if it gets on me but that's just me being a little bitchBut give the fucker some wings and I'm DONE. I'll stare frozen for five minutes straight.
>>519549309Am I the only one who sees the upper right one as a black man who has stylish hat over his afro and two large black sausages stuffed in his face?
>>519549309>YIKES SUPER NOT OKAYWhy not just make it a guy dressed as a Spider or Deadpool and Spiderman?that would be so epic for the win.
>>519547982I'm pretty sure a lot of people would "shut down" if they had a gun pointed at them irl but that doesn't stop shooters from being popular
>>519551584Looking at a screen and being high up does not evoke the same feeling as actually being high up. Your character being in a tight space is not the same as you actually being in one. But spiders that look like real spiders trigger the phobia because real or not, it’s just giving the same feeling as a real one. They know all scenarios are not real and no harm can come to the person, but that’s just simply how it works. I am arachnophobic and I know a small spider can’t hurt me and is more scared of me, but it’s absolutely disgusting to me and unsettling to even think about. Heights do not have the same feeling around them that spiders do
>>519549309wtf why'd they leave the spider abdomen thats the most disturbing part of a spider
>>519556065Nobody has a phobia of guns. The fear is only in the exact moment that your life is in danger, as fear is a survival mechanism. Arachnophobia is not someone’s choice to have of course, just like any phobia. And it’s an irrational fear that exists no matter if the situation is life or death or not. I’m sure people are just shitposting but people with phobias can’t control that fear. You can’t tell someone to man up over it, it doesn’t work like that.
>>519550881>>519550952>Several published meta-analyses included studies of one-to-three hour single-session treatments of phobias, using imaginal exposure. At a post-treatment follow-up four years later 90% of people retained a considerable reduction in fear, avoidance, and overall level of impairmentuh, this is way more effective than i imagined
>>519550326I have the eight to call you a pussy redditor if you're using it tho
>>519547334I hope they get turned into bears like in Dragon Age 2
>>519547334Spiders are horrifying tho
I can't recommend this game right now but I ended up playing 24 hours of it because I liked the setting.I spent a lot of time in an attempt of making a bug proof base only to have ants eating at the foundations under the floor boards and orb weavers clipping through the walls to get inside my house.I also found a destroyed research lab in a berry bush that had been ran over by wolf spiders as well as the bones of 2 dead kids. One had died inside of an ant hill while the other died of starvation in his hideout where they likely went insane collecting ant heads as trophies and mounting them on sticks. Who knows how many dead kids are in this guy's backyard.
>>519556762it's a fantastic cure, just very hard to actually motivate yourself to follow through and maintain exposure. I had a psychologist go through it with me, except for social anxiety. Now i work in a job where i travel round the country presenting insurance training session to people. Works very well, if you can actually keep up with it.
Lazy devs had a Battletoad in the game, why not reskin the spider to look like this?

>>519558831A single session can seriously help a sheltered individual, it certainly did with me. I was at a point where i was almost unable to leave the house due to fear. So after my first session, it was quite liberating to realise i hadn't died.Significant changes do require more recurring sessions though, kind of like exercise. Otherwise you'll just forget everything and return to normal. For me it was getting to a point where I did some form of exposure every day, just because it wss something i had to do because of work, like talking with coworkers, or walking through a crowded city on my commute. Admittedly, i feel myself slipping now cause of the lockdown, since i don't often leave the house anymore and am not able to maintain exposure.
>>519559427>not letting the boys breathe
>>519555785Why the fuck are you playing a game were you fight giant spiders then?
>>519550326>suffer from phobia Boo fucking hoo, you sound like a massive faggot.
I love the concept, it's one of those magical things, being shrunken or in an oversized world. It's the first game I can recall since Alice Madness Returns with a genuinely wonderous setting. But it's just boring. Why the fuck does everything have to be a survival game?
>>519547772OH GOD IT REMINDS OF THIS LOW DETAILED ASS HOLE!
>>519550879>>519551591so this is the power of gamepass

>>519547772how do you make something "sound less spiderlike"
Spiders and most big insects terrify the shit out of me, even the ones that don’t bite. I just freeze in terror if one suddenly appears near me. Most of the time don’t have the guts to pick up the dead ones to throw away without gloves or something.But holy shit, you have to be either the biggest pussy in the world, or just really have problems with distinguishing between the fictional and real world to be scared of video game spider.Honestly the loose grasp on reality sort of explains a lot about majority of zoomers and millenials, and modern society in general.

>muh phobias>muh triggers
giantess mod when
To the people saying that this is some "non-issue" let me bring up the point that it takes dev time to implement something like this and if it becomes a common thing to do, game devs may just stop using spiders in their games because they don't want to have to bother with that feature. Which is a bad thing because spiders are cool.
>>519549041It's not stupid at all dude, I quite literally feel like a kid again playing this game. As someone who's felt disillusioned by most Western games as of late, I'd definitely attribute that to arachnophobia.Had I not arachnophobia, this would probably be yet another "The Forest" but with a higher budget.As a bonus, the giant spiders legit seem to be working as exposure therapy.
>>519555974I can't unsee it now
>>519568971by replacing the usual sound effects associated with spiders?the hisses and their legs tip tapping
>>519572330Spiders don't actually make those sounds though? I have arachnophobia and my fear is not based on any type of sound, it's the way they look and move. I simply can't imagine being afraid of "spider noises," the concept is absurd to me.
>>519549309What the fuck.This doesn't make it better at all
>>519549309Bottom middle looks like a floating fleshlight. Whats the problem?
>>519572674>Spiders don't actually make those sounds thoughthey do in videogames> I simply can't imagine being afraid of "spider noises," the concept is absurd to me.I simply can't imagine being afraid of spiders the concept is absurd to me but here we areand spiders might not make a sound audible to us, but the game is about being tiny, i'm sure that when a spider is as a big as a bus compared to you it might make a sound or two
>>519547334>Western devs think it's a good idea to add a spider slider>But never a gore slider for bloody game such as MK or TLOU because violence is never an issuePriorities

>>519550256You won't encounter anyone in your basement.
>>519573868the luxuries of the modern world have corrupted the human spirit
>>519547772Why not just turn them into some other angry bug instead of floating ayys?
>>519547334Okay, now add a slider for all phobias, please. Start with homophobia. Thanks.
>>519573994i blame shitty parentsmy dad pulled all kinds of shit like finding a spider and throwing it at me or letting a small crab hang off my earit scared the fuck out of me but after that i was never scared of insects
>>519574156honestly i am sympathetic to phobias, but if you literally can not do a leisure activity because a fictional representation of that phobia is in that piece of media, you have a serious problem that needs fixing
>>519574302>you have a serious problem that needs fixingyeah, it's called a phobia
>>519573196>they do in videogamesyou're ignoring my point. sound/noise is not a part of arachnophobia so including it in a setting that is meant to alleviate arachnophobia makes no sense.>I simply can't imagine being afraid of spiders the concept is absurd to me but here we areagain ignoring my point. just because you don't have arachnophobia doesn't mean you should be incapable of understanding that sound is not a part of arachnophobia because spiders do not make noise in real life.>and spiders might not make a sound audible to us, but the game is about being tiny, i'm sure that when a spider is as a big as a bus compared to you it might make a sound or twothat doesn't mean people with arachnophobia would be scared of made-up noises that don't exist in any real context.>>519573949>in this game they sound like fucking demons. like they shriek at you loudlyI mean that just sounds obnoxious more than anything. It still doesn't have anything to do with arachnophobia.
>>519547334>Game looks like a N64 game>Man babies still scared of the fake spiders
>>519547334>super not okay with thatdo devs really have to write their game like a fucking tumblr post?

>>519574302How is not being able to play one specific video game a "serious problem that needs fixing?"How is playing a video game intended to cause stress a "leisure activity" and how do you consider it a "serious problem" if people just don't enjoy playing that game?You sound dumb.
>>519549309they compleeeeeeeeeeetely missed the bus on thisyou make it cartoony to make it less scary, not fucking, reducing it to make it more horrific one by one until you slowly end up at the globular abstraction of a spider which allows the user to mentally color in the absolute spider of their nightmares
>>519547982I don't especially like spiders. but I know the ones on the TV are fake, are these people delusional also?
why not change it to another bug instead of some immersion breaking unfinished model?
>>519574465you're dense if you think i was implying it's only got to do with this one game

>>519574127Same but with trannies please. Their permarotting mutilated cocks scare me.
>>519547772>>519548243i knew a guy in high school who would literally throw up at the sight of blood, i'm not exaggerating slightlythere are a lot of people with weird mental problems in this world and if it takes five minutes to design a system that lets them enjoy your game without negatively impacting other players' experiences i don't see the problem with thisthe actual problem is when the systems DO impact other players, then it's a bridge too far
>>519575390it's a fine idea, the problem lies in the implementation, where they only made a token effort to then make a big deal out of saying they did itthe spider censoring does not make the spider less scary, but moreso
>>519547334I can't believe there is a time in /v/ where you faggots are defending shit like this. If you're afraid of spiders you're a worthless faggot who has bigger problems in life than "spooky spiders in my video game". t. has pet spiders.
>>519550773Same here, one of the things that makes me remember it way to well. Same with Farcry 3 for me with water and phobia for deep waters.Had to hunt sharks for upgrades.Dive in after I kill one to collect.It is fucking DEEP but I keep svimming after the falling debries of the shark(the pouch).Swim as fuck down and get it, almost past 50% of my breath.Turn up to see my boat, surrounded by sharks, My BPM spiked to 170+ and panicingSo mad I didnt get that recorded, my genuine panic and scared moment.Didnt know I had such a phobia for deep waters and shit.Gotten nightmares later with my IRL boat rides and swimming.This is a long time ago.
>>519575453if you have pet spiders you probably have bigger problems in life than "person spooked by spiders"
>>519547334>super not okayObsidiots still defend this garbage studio?
>>519575538you should play subnautica

In the game "Satasfactory" you can turn on Arachna phobia modeIt turns All spiders(That are bigger and scaryer then grounded game) Into Cute Cat Pictures(2D sprit)

On every stream ive seen of this game all Ive heard is people changing diapers and shitting over and over its like people lose control over thier bowels and just empty them while playing grounded its one of the strangest things ive noticed about all the people playing this game you hear a swelqy fart and then their they ohhh ill be back in a min and its like did they just shit their pants again
>>519572674lol first world problems. terrified of literal house spiders smaller than a coin. i only know that because you'd absolutely shit your pants to find out that even spindly tropical spiders are big enough to make literal tip tap footstep noises as they skitter on the walls. did you think mouse-sized spiders moved more silently than mice?

So Grounders, hows Grounded? Feeling grounder? Getting Groundy while you play Grounded is pretty Groundy my Grounders. Groundup.
I love how almost every post that complains about this slider are ''I don't have arachnophobia so it can't be real''. this thread made me realize just how dumb the average /v/ermin really is.
>>519574374>sound/noise is not a part of arachnophobiait might be, some people are scared of different thingsbet you 10 bucks there are people who are scared of the multiple legs aspect and some people are scared of the multiple eyes thingvideogames spiders are made to sound creepy on purpose and that adds to the scare factor.i bet you would find vidya spiders less creepy of they came at you with honk honk clown noises instead of hissing
>>519572674Believe it or not the hissing sound spiders make in minecraft is actually close to the same sound tarantulas make when agitated

>>519577681has anyone ITT even said it isn't real? most that i read are just (accurately) disparaging it as weak and pathetic.
im the only reasonable one in this threadnothing wrong with an additional option
>>519551045>it's possible to fake it, therefore it is conclusively not realLMAO
Lets be real here its not like massive spiders jump out on your face and start laying eggs in your eyes mouth and ass its a kiddy game for kiddo kidders
Anyone want to tell me if the game is worth buying or are we gonna keep on bitching about options
>>519574671They're pretty great, spiders like to catch annoying flies. I usually leave their webs intact unless they're in an inconvenient spot.
>>519577770>i haven't read the thread, but i know no-one in it has said this thingliterally why even post lmao

>>519547772>>519547334Thank fucking god, I might be able to play this fucking game.Oh wait: still not intersted hahahahaha.But anyway, I am really happy that they included this option, I am unable to finish Dark Messiah: Might & Magic because of the spiders and Thief games, one of my favorite game series, is sometimes like playing a fucking nightmare. And yes, I am an adult man.So fuck you anons, fuck you all.But at least let's agree:This game looks like boring trash minecraft-fortnite or just a re-theme of ark: the gay dinosaur game.
>>519547334Reminder Australia (yes the tough shit cunt posters) banned a Peppa Pig episode because it depicted friendly spidersTells you much about society
>>519577770>disparaging it as weak and pathetic.First of all >>519577946Second of all they say it's weak and pathetic because the average poster here thinks arachnophobia is the same as being scared of spiders which it is not but that doesn't matter because the average /v/irgin here wants to larp as a tough guy.
>>519576739They should of added the option to have sex with spidergirls. But no they had to go and add the option of not having sex with spidergirls instead of having sex with spidergirls even once but we got no spidergirl sex god I hate no spidergirl sex when we will get if we will ever get spidergirl sex is anyones guess.

Only time REmake got me was when you are in the house area and the big fucking spider moves behind you with no sound at all. Just masterfully executed with the camera angle. And the first time you see the enemy.Would that be accompanied with a trigger warning today?
>>519552497You sound like a dickless faggot. They're not fucking giant tarantulas. They're just quarter-sized with chunky legs. Get over it
I'm pretty terrified of Subnautica because the open ocean scares me so I just stopped playing itIts that simple
>>519547334i have arachnophobia and every game i'm generally fine, this game is triggering it though for some reason, for me personally i think just them being bigger than me and able to loom over me is causing me issues, i refuse to turn on the "accessibility" option though so i'll just go out of my way to stay away from them
Absolutely nothing wrong with this. If the devs believe spiders aren't critical to the experience and can be removed, then they can be removed, and more people will be able to enjoy the game.
>>519579934I was horrified of psy monkies in system shock 2.I still can't believe how hard they got me with that.
>>519547334Is it at least yuri-free?I don't like the fact that it has a possible female protagonist to begin with.

Imagine being afraid of a dumb spider as a grown adult. IMAGINE being so afraid of a spider as a grown adult that you have to alter a video game cartoon spider so it doesnt scare you.
>people play video games differently than me?>not allowed! not allowed! imagine caring about the irrational fears of other people, if you didnt know about arachnaphobia until right now i suggest you kill yourself>>519581112>bait threadnot him but this is genuine, try reading the thread, there are plenty of people who are angrily against having options in video games
>>519568590Because phobias are often illogicalhell, I'd say i've got mild arachnophobia and some spiders in games dont bother me at all yet others do
I have a fear of deep water and I loved SOMA. I even jumped off into the abyss and died because ITS VIDEO GAMES
>>519547772>>519547982I know a chick that saw a spider on a motorcycle she was riding on, she jumped off while at cruising speed and almost died. Bitch broke a ton of bones, never walked right again and got really fat.
I fucking absolutely have arachnophobia, whenever I see a spider in game or in video I have a tingling feeling of one climbing on my legs. This feature is welcomed one.
>>519547774Not really relevant, unless you played in VRAlso the spiders in this game would definitely throw someone into a panic attack if they have it bad
>>519581451>i am everyone?>>519581465hope your mom is ok :^)
How do I cure my arachnophobia?I man look at this alien fuck. If he's within an arm's reach I'd get the fuck out of there.

accessibility options are starting to go to farSea of Thieves just introduced a setting for people that are afraid of the fucking sea
>>519578119I think it’s probably more to do with kids imitating Peppa pig with acting friendly with spiders when we have so many deadly varieties

>>519581891Wait, explain pls that sounds hilarious
>>519581874>you will never be killed or even injured by a spider (if you live in the 1st world) so dont even trip dogThe brown recluse, which is all over America, begs to differ. Technically black widows are in America as well, but you have to be extra retarded to get bit by one
>>519581769schizophrenia is in your head for a start, but you also missed his point intentionallyhe was replying to someone, maybe its your first day but you can hover over the red numbers to see where he was replyingthis is a fairly new feature made for people like yourself, you should go back and read an entire chain before you reply, most people put atleast this much effort in
>>519581984it's called "autofloat mode" and you automatically float to the surface whenever you jump into the water
>>519547772Because people play horror games to experience the fear.Just because you shrunk the kids, doesn't mean you'll ever come across a spider.
>>519581986i said 1st world for a reason
>>519582030So you just cant dive under? That sounds kinda dumb. Sharks can still attack tho?
>>519548737This is completely fair.I have a big problem with spiders. But if you play a game which is about being stuck in a backyard being chased by bugs, and you are scared of spiders your an asshole. That would be like picking up a copy of Deadly Creatures and having a meltdown.
>>519582126yes and I think?
>>519582030>>519582126wouldnt it be awesome for someone for a fear of water to be able to completely safely manipulate and travel in the ocean, rather than lock them at the surface?people who are afraid of the ocean arent afraid of a blue filter, they dont want to fucking drown
>>519579261This is stupid because the difference is that early access devs actively sell their unfinished product. People aren't banging on their office doors to get copies that they wouldn't have sold otherwise.
>>519579058>being a pussy faggot who’s afraid of harmless spiders is the same as being paralyzed or having cancer
>>519549925I can't go near them, I'll actually get the shakes around larger ones if I'm too close. Granted I live in Australia, in Sydney, so when I get a funnelweb in the house what I am saying is that I've got one of the most venomous spiders in the fucking world in my house.And also I wouldn't play with this pussy setting because I feel like the terror would make it more fun.
>>519547334In America it is good to be a pathetic mess.
>>519582215I assumed a fear of the ocean would be more like a fear of the open ocean, as in stuck swimming no boats or land in sight.
>>519549452>>519550637>NEET telling anyone to "man up" or calling anyone a pussyIrony must be a word that doesn't exist on 4chan.
>>519547334>OH NO, VIRTUAL THING SCARY ME BRAIN CAN'T HANDLE OOH OOH AHH AHH Damn, how do these people make it through the day?
Having the option wouldn’t ordinarily be a problem for me since it’s, again, optional. On the other hand, it caters to tranny game journalists and leddit so I’m going to make fun of anyone that uses it. Also that phrasing is pure cringe.
>>519547334Funny as half of these replies are, I'm pretty sure its there for children, because its a childrens game.
>>519581997Maybe you’re a facetious retard that thinks a phobia is comparable to schizophrenia
it would be glorious if the slider button is a little spider you have to click and drag and the fucker moves its legs while you do it
>>519582303yeah but unlike the arachnaphobia thing there actually is no danger, the player could panic attack for 30 minutes, then pick up the controller, push 1 button, reach the surface and go "oh"im not even suggesting it will effect their IRL phobia, but i am pretty certain after 1 attempt the player wouldnt consider the virtual ocean in the same light>>519582413>trying too hardAM I RITE GUYS FUCK THOSE ESS JAY DOUBLE YOUS AM I RIGHT HAHA VIDEO GAMES
>>519549309Yo why are some of these more uncomfortable than the base spider wtf
>>519573493There are many games that let you disable blood and gore.
>>519582270>early access devs actively sell their unfinished productThat's the fucking point. They openly advertise it as unfinished and people complain that it's unfinished.
>>519582485but thats not what i said, nor is it what poster #1 saidits easier to just call people retarded if you are honestly 12, no need to try your hand at baiting, because you just look 10x the retard now, that was 2 posts in a row that you couldnt read, both sub-100 word posts too
>>519549041I'm really afraid of being more than a few feet underwater when you can't see anything, and Subnautica was a fucking visceral experience for me.
>>519582580some people were born this decade and they all post here because its epic
>>519552217Your employer will cover basic therapy even if you're wageslaving for pennies. Also there's free clinics and outpatient centres for this across the US. t. not even American.
>>519549309The actual spider is cuter than the rest of these monstrosities.
>>519579012says the NEET
>>519555785Then dont play the fucking game
>>519550326I had a phobia of razorblades due to cutting myself badly with one as a toddler. I would literally jump out of a bath if say I accidentally knocked the one my mother kept there into it. You know how I got over it? My dad took me into the bathroom when I was 13 and I had to learn to shave and despite me collapsing to the floor in terror and trying to run away, he kept me there and showed me how to shave and that was that, the phobia vanished.
>>519582730not him and you're right but dont forget "basic therapy" over there is an hour long session where the core message is BUY THIS, SIGn UP FOR THIS, BELIEVE In THISamericans cant even educate people to the age of 16 so government mandated therapy for adults is of course an embarrasment
>>519549024All phobias are irrational fears you mong, you can't push a guy afraid of water into the sea and expect him to magically get over his fear of water
>>519582281>social anxietyboo fucking hoo, you sound like a massive faggot.It's hilarious how /v/ makes fun of people with phobias when half of you literally shit your pants and hole yourselves in your rooms over the mere thought of having to talk to a cashier (a person, btw, will literally forget your existence the moment you walk out the door).
>>519555785You a b i t c h
>>519581997>red numbersgo back, you outed yourself as a newfag already
>>519549925It is a mental illness. These guys are literally insane. Since human beings like to categorize everything, they put the crazy into different categories.
>>519582621Maybe you’re more autistic than I thought, especially if you think I’m the one that looks retarded in this conversation
>>519555785So don't play a game about being shrunk down to the extent where normal spiders are a mortal peril then.
>>519547772>>519547334>>519547334I like it, I'm so arachnophobic that the site of a spider makes me freeze up and feel uncomfortable and terrified.>Once went down the back entrance of my apartment building that locks as you leave and the exit was covered in giant spiders and their eggs.I literally had to call a friend so he could talk me through opening the door and sprinting out.
>>519575965So am I but I still love games where you explore or jump out of high things because I know it's not real.
Why are spiders never portrayed realistically?They're always slow and lumbering when in reality they're lightning fast.
>>519583119Have you played the game?They are not slow
>>519550326Nig, im afraid of bad-looking spiders.But i dont give a fuck in games like Skyrim or EDF.
>>519577417Nothing wrong with diapers, anon. It's the ABDL stuff that's cancerous.
>>519583119the thing that scares me most about spiders if how they'll suddenly freeze and then instantly move lightning fast in a random direction.just looking at a spider doesnt scare me that much but the way they suddenly move is fucked
>>519579058None of those things are comparable to freaking out at fictional, unrealistic depictions of spiders in a videogame.
>>519583030>think someone is comparing phobias to diseases, when they are actually being intentionally obtuse to reply to someone who was being unironically obture>i tell you that you should re-read to discover this>you reply "phobias arent schizophrenia"not only do you look more retarded than anyone in this thread, but i actually think you might have nailed retardation highly accurately, because i dont feel like im here in this conversation>>519582993?i wouldnt know but im pretty sure even on phones the very obvious post quotes are red, maybe you are colourblind and forgot?
>People here genuinely afraid of spiders. Unless you live in Australia and got a bad spider bite, I don't understand this at all. There's spiders all over my room and it's bad luck to kill spiders, as they're courtiers.
>>519547772It is a weird choice, and I say that as a full on entomaphobe. I’d be more scared of the friendly ants than the spiders anyway, but this does feel more like a case of a tacked on ‘look what we included’ thing for brownie points.
>>519582580Yes but that wasn't because people may get upset at the blood and gore it was so parents would stop bitching about Little Timmy playing those violent video games and enjoying the blood and gore.
>>519583349you realise people dont choose these things in their character select screen right
>>519583349>it's bad luck to kill spiders, as they're courtiers.what country is this superstition from?
>>519583439Many European ones. There's also a British one about not killing money spiders because of the name. Plus spiders in general keep down flies and other insects.
The giant purple ones from Spyro still make me uncomfortable
>>519549309>giving them a new fearSounds like a win to me
>>519583371Wow, no way, they included a feature people might like so people would like it? You realise that arachnophobia is incredibly common and that lots of games with giant spiders in them have popular mods to remove or replace them?
>>519547334there's nothing wrong with this except>if you're super not okay with thatwhat fucking game reads like a teenagers tweet
>>519583119>Play some Russian S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Mod>It has really big spiders>Fastest mutant in the entire game, outpaced only by the attack helicopter>Stay ontop of a car for minutes on end with shit all ammo for the king of all peashooters.
>>519583495>Many European onesNot mine. Eastern?
>>519583313I take it back, you are not autistic or retarded, you are actually insane
If I see a spider IRL I'll get a little bit of distance and give myself a small pop talk before I get rid of it.That being said the spiders in this game, or any game for that matter, dont affect me. If its behind a screen its whatever.So even as a mild arachnaphobe, this feature is useless. I think it's for children guys. Calm down.
>>519583568i agree and would never defend such fedora language, but consider that the dev could literally be 18 years oldwe are old and the younger normals talk like that, it is what it is
>>519583168>They are not slowTake a look at real spiders.>>519583261>the way they suddenly move is fuckedExactly this.
Moths are scarier then spiders
>>519583568A game for teenagers.
>>519583672>the last 3 posts have just been autistic screeching>cant even justify within his own shitpost why he is calling people retardedok sir you had your fun, but people dont post this much on their first day, lurk more faggot and learn to read a reply chain, unless you just plan on sperging out and calling people retarded as a sport
>>519583678This. Its a game for children you absolute mongoloids.
I dont know how anyone can hate spiders
>>519583565I just think it’s too drastic a change and that it’s more something that should be chalked up to ‘hey this game probably won’t be for you’. Not every game has to be made for everyone, and the level of change you have to make for the primary antagonist of the game to be replaced by fighting polygon team feels like it would just disappoint the players who use that mode. >’This game is about being shrunk down and surviving against giant bugs and spiders’ >‘Oh shit I’m an arachnophobe so probably not playing that’ >‘It’s okay they included a mode where the spiders are replaced with nondescript blobs that float around and make more generic alert noises’ >‘That feels like it would be dumb and patronizing and would ruin any immersion I could start to generate, I think the game just isn’t for me and that’s okay’
>>519583754We're just fairies
>>519547334>IF YOU'RE SUPER DUPER TOTALLY NOT OK WITH THATIs this the birth of a new kind of manchild?
There's nothing wrong with having an option. It doesn't take much to implement and doesn't take anything away from your experience, stop making a big deal out of fucking nothing. Plenty of games have an option to disable gore or control gore levels, I don't see you autists making threads about those.
>>519583797Nothing, I repeat nothing in the whole reply chain has anything to do with you comparing legitimate disabilities to phobias, phobias are psychosomatic, you facetiously saying they are and then deriding someone for calling out your shit leads me to believe you are insane
>>519547982Blacks make me uncomfortable can I have an option to disable them in games? Kthx
>>519583678Ironically, though we could never predict who this would happen to, it’s probably a better feature to prevent arachnophobia in children than it is to provide a means for those that already have it to play. I’m 90% certain my arachnophobia was heavily influenced by the skull spiders in ocarina and the final boss of the deku tree because I played the game at five years old.
>>519584067That's not an irrational fear ("phobia"), so no
>>519583748I know how fast real spiders are, I live in Australia, I’m just saying they are not that slow in this game
>>519583943not him but what exactly is wrong with your greentext scenario? so they decided not to buy the game. some people might decide to test it or watch footage, some people might use it as a chance to beat there fears, some people might buy it for their girlfriend>>519584057no one ever compared phobias to disabilities, i explained this post >>519579058 to you on more than one occasion, and its not even my post, so for you then to misunderstand a 2nd time and to attach it to me, once again, please learn to read properly and you will steer clear of this kind of trouble
>>519547334America made a virtue of being a desperate mess.
>>519549370Sharks. also just big fish in general, but sharks make me shit bricks.
>>519584119True, it is highly rational to try avoiding minorities
>>519584339I'm glad we agree
>>519584057>phobias are psychosomaticThey are not, they're connected to your nervous system and develop during formative years when neural pathways are still malleable. Being afraid of something and not wanting to deal with something and having a phobia are different things, you are unfit to be talking about this topic because you're a fucking idiot.
>>519583636I've seen versions of it in English, French, Spanish and German folklore books.
>>519581684he's so cute bros, wtf.
>>519583953I'll let you in when you can shoot lasers from your eyes like Mothra. Until then, fuckoff.
>>519584423Then why does exposure therapy work so well on phobias?
>>519584214Nothing, I’m not implying that’s a bad interaction. I suppose speaking as someone this mode is geared towards appealing to and going through the thought exercise of how I’d handle that encounter that’s how it would play out. Doesn’t mean the game or mode is shit, and people of a similar ailment aren’t a monolith, but this is 4chan and it’s custom to imply broad sweeping generalizations to make my point seem more valid.
>>519584152>they are not that slow in this gameThey are though, compared to real spiders.
>>519584526Psychologist here We don’t know (And the obvious, ‘it doesn’t always’)
>>519584526It doesn't it works well on fears. You don't cure a phobia the same way you don't cure OCD, it's with you for life until you die because either your parents were retards or you got brain damage in early youth from something like a streptococcal infection. The best you can do is treat it and those treatments have only mild effects at best.
>>519582950homophobia is not irrational. But.. its also not a fear. wait why does this word even exist again?
>>519582136you're saying this as if the devs don't gain anything. they know lot's of people have this phobia and don't eanna lose on sales
>>519550326Video games are as unimportant as anything can be, yet here we are.I like my unimportant shit to not waste resources on catering to people who won't play them anyway.
>>519584628TRUEif it were me i would have included the alternate realities of the girlfriend gifter etc, although its besides the point because as you say, on 4chan the only reply is nAH FUCK YOU anywayif u werent implying negative implications then oopsie poopsie>>519584526i didnt realise therapy had a "WILL nEVER WORK On x" clausehuman brains and therefor therapy are not fully understood, incase you didn't know
>>519547334>>519547772That is so fucking gay.What have we as human beings become?
>>519584868homophobia was and is used wrong so much that phobia pretty much lost its original meaningthanks faggots
>>519584868because not wanting a sweaty guy to wear tights and do handstands in a shop at 12am is offensive, so they needed a term to both marginalise normal people as well as make them the bad guy
>>519584864>either your parents were retards or you got brain damage in early youth from something like a streptococcal infectionWhat do you mean?
If I can give myself ED from gooning to porn all daythen you also desensitize yourself to any phobiathere is literally nothing in this world with out diminishing returns.
OMG I'M SO GAY I'M AFRAID OF LITTLE SPIDERS OMFG

>>519585425tfw in med school others lost their appetite during anatomy lessons and I only got real fucking hungry
>>519585068Parents were retards = showed extremely averse reaction to spiders around the child when it was prepubescent, which in turn affected the nervous system of the child as it was developing. The fear response to specific stimulus became ingrained after observing the parents, it is the strongest evolutionary tool for us available - learning and mother nature being the tryhard bitch she is, made sure that anything that is a danger to such an extent that it would make your big uns scream, will most likely stay the same way with you for life because learning in formative years affects your nervous system. The second example was about development of OCD as a result of an autoimmune response. It affects a small amount of people that suffered streptococcal infections during their formative years, say kindergarten and which damaged their brain by the autoimmune response because the proteins of streptococcus are very similar to those found inside of your brain. It's not the only way you could get OCD, you could get it by simply inheriting it, but it is one of the most physically affecting you as a whole. Thankfully most kids these days don't get streptococcus infections, but third world countries are still ripe with this. Your body will affect your mind, people have forgotten that. Mind over matter works only until a certain extent.

>>519586495Not really; a really dumb nigger could never faithfully impersonate an educated white. That's just how it works. It's easier to pretend to be dumber than you are, than it is to pretend to be smarter. That why 99% of shitposting and baiting here is so painfully obvious.
