I hope John Goodman is in this game too. Gonna need some extermination.

Only of the giant variety. I don't like big gross things like that.. yeesh. But it'll just make me want to dispatch them even faster, so eh.

But small spiders and bugs never bother me. Like in Uncharted 3. It was more stressful than scary.

Wow that spider is huge, no way a vacuum cleaner is sucking that thing up.

And all along we thought dragons were the real menace.

Sweet Jesus. Just... Gah. I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

NO! Then they become giant mutated spiders who want revenge.

I'm not scared of spiders, but I think they're fucking gross. I hate them. They all have to die. It's not like I'm going to stop the game if I start seeing those giant ones though.

Giant fantasy spiders don't bother me at all.

@Colonel_Fury: may have a point. Maybe William Shatnercould be called in to handle this.

I'd deadly afraid of whales.

You heard me. Whales.

whales? really? out of all the scary ass creatures in the ocean.. personally i'm fucking shit scared of sharks/snakes.. spiders are kinda nasty aswell but then again i'm from norway

we dont have any dangerous spiders or snakes here, and well dont think there has ever been a shark here either so i'm good!

I can just imagine swimming in the middle of the ocean (for some reason), and see this absolutely huge shadow towering up beneath you in the water. I swear I'd pass out from fear if that ever happened in real life, even if whales don't exactly eat or attack humans.

Or being in a boat and watching it pass underneath. That would be truly terrifying I think.

That don't look like a spider. I would never have thought it one if not for you pointing it out.

I wouldn't consider myself arachnophobic but giantarachnophobia is kind of a totally different story.

Reading through this topic, my cat brushed my leg - I jumped. Maybe I am a little arachnophobic...

Can't say that I am. I dislike spiders but I'm not afraid of them. I love killing spiders in games though because it feels like revenge for all the times they've snuck in my room and hung on my walls just to scare the hell out of me.

But you can hack them to pieces. Shouldn't that make things better? You can literally fight your fears.

I'm not a huge fan of spiders but in video games I can handle them fine... well, until Uncharted 3 that is. The first scene with those things (those who have played the game will know the one) made me legitimately uneasy.
