Video Games Will Calm Your Fears!

Video Games Will Calm Your Fears!

Quote:
Regular, off-the-shelf computer video games are an effective method of treating people's fears, using a style of therapy that exposes people to what scares them in a controlled setting, according to a new study released on Friday.
...
The researchers used the game Half-Life to create a spider-laden environment for arachnophobic people, and Unreal Tournament to simulate heights for acrophobics and tight spaces for claustrophobics.
The maps they used can be downloaded on their website here:
http://w3.uqo.ca/cyberpsy/UT-Evironnements_Virtuels.exe

After extracting that exe, don't run the setup program; just move all the *.unr files to the C:\UnrealTournament\Maps directory. It is probably also a good idea to use these maps without bots ...

[ Update ] I looked at some of these maps; most of them are UT maps modified, perhaps to remove the weapons...

HL for spiders.
UT for heights and confined areas.

I wonder what they used Silent Hill for. Bed wetting?
