(PC Gamer)   Finally there's a game that satisfies our most basic instinct: finding small spiders in your house and using guns, explosives, and just plain ol' fire to kill every last one of them   (pcgamer.com) divider line

That is just wrong.
Brilliant, but wrong.

I would honestly just get a cup and a piece of paper, catch the little buggers, take them outside and let them go.  I never understood the visceral reaction people have with spiders.

As long as they're not too big, I leave them alone. They eat other bugs.

I was pretty spooked by them until I ended up taking care of a neglected tarantula that someone I used to be friends with abandoned.

I named him Arachnotron. I was sad when he died.

I would buy this game instantly if it supported VR, and it would easily be a best seller on the Oculus Quest.

As it stands, however, I find it hard to play games that are so perfect for VR, yet don't support it, and tend to stay away from them (my backlog is huge already, both VR and non-VR). I know it sounds odd, but I wouldn't be surprised if there are a lot of VR users who feel the same way I do.

Why settle for only doing it in a game?

I always hear this but I always kill spiders and 90% of the bugs I find in my house are still spiders.

Whatever makes you, personally, instinctively jump backwards and yell "oh, shiat!", that's how some people are with spiders.  Especially when they are noticed only when they are in close proximity to vital sensory organs and/or body orifices.

It's like touching a hot stove.  The body reacts before the brain can process anything.

Think it through, jeez.

You're only finding spiders *because they're eating the other bugs.*

They literally *couldn't* still be present and reproducing without a steady food source.

I understand the mechanics behind it, I just don't see spiders as a threat worthy of that kind of reaction.  Florida Man with anything explosive or sharper than a nerf ball, yes, but not a spider.

Right, but I meant that leaving spiders alone isn't prudent either, there are already more than enough of them. And unless it's Halloween, cobwebs in your house isn't a good look.

Spiders are your friends, you big bullies.

This is my gut reaction to babies and children.
