Links to Phobias and Gaming

Updated: Jan 24, 2021

Hello everyone. As part of my ongoing work to promote accessibility and inclusivity in video games, I have created a two-part article miniseries on the topic of phobias in video games with the fine folks at Game Luster. Links are below:

In this article, we investigate how phobias can make playing video games a difficult, unpleasant or even unbearable experience.

In this article we investigate three related topics;

1 - What developers can do to make their games more accessible to phobics.

2 - What phobics can do themselves to make some video games more bearable.

3 - How health care professionals are using video games technology to treat peoples phobias.

NB - since I do not own Game Luster I am unable to do anything about the adverts that appear in the articles.

Feel free to share your thoughts and experiences about phobias in the comment section below.
