i know most people on here are Arachnophobic and I know a few people in real life who are too.  I even know someone who was scared to death of the giant spider in the Harry Potter video game.  Are you scared of spiders in video games?

I wouldn't  touch  one in real life, but don't mind them in games-

The Limbo spider is the most terrifying enemy I have ever faced in a video game.

Not anymore. When I was a kid I was terrified of the spiders in the Ocarina of Time(especially the ones with the faces on them).

Seeing as how one crawled up behind me in Castlevania and made me jump, I'd say yes.  
 
I have two fears in real life. One is heights, and the other is spiders. Bad childhood experiences with both of those things.

No.  They don't scare me in real life and they don't scare me in video games.

The GB community isn't very fond of spiders but I think it's a bit of an overstatement to say we have arachnophobia. Personally I'm not scared by much stuff in video games, spiders included.

Hell yeah! Not just spiders, all bugs, couldn't play through Fallout because of this.

I have no problem with them in games, no. But, if made really well, they can still be gross though.

I actually had a bit of trouble with Fallout 3. 
It all depends on how realistic the bugs look. The spiders in Dragon Age are kinda freaky for this reason (they really go out of their way to render the hairs) but something more stylized/less realistic (like EDF) doesn't really bother me.
