    Virtual Pets

    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!
    We're a virtual pets and sim games community and the largest forum in our industry. Game owners can use our forum to their advatange by promoting/advertising their games to our users and receive feedback/reviews from those members that try their games out. We support developers of all kinds from RPG developers, sim game developers to virtual pet site developers. We want to see more games in our industry come across more success and that's why we try our best to release as many guides/articles regarding online gaming development as we can.
    We're unlike other forums in our industry because we try our best to be there for our users no matter what and give them advice whenever they ask for it. Running an online game isn't an easy task, but with our many resources that we've built since 2011, you'll learn a lot from our online community. Please don't ever be afraid to ask a question on the forums because if you never ask, then you'll never receive an answer to your question and you can only improve by asking other users for help/advice.
    We have a lot of virtual pet sites' owners and sim game owners that are very frequent visitors on our online community. Along with artists, writers and programmers that come here looking for work and games to work for. Our members who are artists sell art in our art marketplace and programmers are allowed to sell their scripts in the programming marketplace. We also allow game owners to sell their game in our general marketplace
    In early 2011, we decided to make a comeback to the internet because in 2010, we had a minor setback and we had to re-launch without any content, but with a lot of time, patience, hardwork and effort, we've managed to rebuild the Virtual pet list community into something better than it was before. We actually registered our domain name on November 4th, 2004, but we were only a directory then and all we had was a basic comments system for users to post things on their favorite games..
    So, what are you waiting for, why don't you join today? If you have any problems figuring out our security code, then here's a hint, it has millions upon users and has been around since 1997.
    Our list of virtual pet sites and directory of sim games have a lot of different games listed, so we're pretty sure that you may find some games that suits your needs as a player of sim games or virtual pet sites.
    If you're still curious about a certain game that you'd like to play, then please check out some of our game reviews that were written by some of our great contributors and our interviews with respective virtual pet site owners, sim game owners, artists, writers and programmers that have worked in this industry.

    What are some insects that you're afraid of? How about animals? Basically, I'm not worried about insects because I'll kill them as I see them - such as pinchers, and spiders. Animals? I'm kind of afraid of a Tiger or a lion, but not a Gorilla.

    But, how about you? What are some insects that you're afraid of? Is it spiders? Bees? Pinchers? How about animals?

    Hornets, Bees, Spiders, Fleas, Ticks and Moths (but only the giant ones that fly around your face).

    As for animals, I don't really think I'm afraid of any. I used to be terrified of squid and anything with tentacles (brought up horrible memories)but after I learned that they were tasty it kind of got rid of the dear of them lols.

    I'm afraid of crawly legs. I am afraid of being crawled on more specifically. I can observe spiders from afar but the thought of them on me I'll scream like a girl and jump up and down. I am STUPID afraid of centipedes. The site of one makes me wanna cry I will get a mile away from the sucker.

    I'm not afraid of any mammals though. I have a good healthy respect for quite a few but not fear really.

    I kill those as soon as I see them. At night, we see small ones that like to crawl on you if you don't catch them before you do. I know my mom screams when she sees a spider and I have to go kill it for her. I'm not afraid of roaches, but they are disgusting.
    @Sirkowskii Hornets? Me too, those shit hurt a lot if they sting.

    @cpvr - I think we have some living in our railing but idk if they are hornets or wasps. Either way, those guys are assholes and hurt like hell. I've been stung so many times by them before.

    I have arachnophobia, it sucks. :c
    I get like panic attacks from having one less than 3 feet away from me, and if it is across the room I have to leave or just sit and stare at it until someone gets it and try not to flip my lid. > ~<''

    So far as just regular dislike/fear nothing else really bugs me unless it is on me. xD 'Cept this one time I found a foot long poisonous centipede but I think everyone has a right to be afraid of that in their front yard. :v lol

    When I was younger, we had a nest in our basement and we had to call someone to spray down the whole basement. I hate bees as well because I got stung by one before while walking in my room. I thought it was dead so I walked on, and it stung my foot. They don't bother me as much as seeing "pinchers" or ugly ass spiders. I tolerate them though because every else in the house are afraid of spiders except myself, my dad, and brother.

    I'm not afraid of any insects. I know that they won't harm me if I don't threaten them and even if they do I'll get over it.

    I'm not really afraid of any. Some insects disgust me, but I kill most of them. :p As for animals, I don't really care, as long as they're not stray. That's when I stay away from them, who knows what diseases and shit they carry.

    I don't like big spiders, or wasps when they're around me (just because they might sting, though I like them in general). I have a weird thing about crabs, too. Even my own hermit crabs freak me out sometimes when they stretch too far out of their shell. It's like a giant crunchy spider.

    @Vella C Raptor I have arachnophobia as well, but that only came to be in October 2007 when THE biggest GHS ran out from god knows where into the middle of my room and just froze facing directly at me, BEFORE that I were fine with spiders.

    Like this house I moved into, I've had 8 Giant House Spiders to deal with, I haven't seen anymore though (touch wood). And if I see one, I have to kill it else I can't sleep knowing that there's one active in the house, cause they bite. I'm not sure if its venomous or not though.

    Best line of defence is Gilette Anti-Perspirant Deodorant, cause its super cold and sprays out as white and when it hits the spider it turns it from that yucky brown color into white, and it kills it.

    Or use a hoover -suck- straight up.

    I would have said hitting them with something but the last one I had, I hit it with a slipper and OMFG it had no affect on it :O

    I don't like crabs, cause they move sideways.

    I don't like weewows either, their fucking weird.

    I don't like wasps, cause I got stung a lot when I was younger cause there was a nest in the loft and they were coming in through the vents into the rooms of the house we were in.

    I can't think what else I don't like really.

    I've seen so many of them, I've gotten used to them. But I still try to kill them when I can. They're so nasty. You see them a lot in certain apartment complexes around here and in Houston.

    I don't see them a lot where I live though. I see those "lizards" though, and I leave them alone because they eat the bugs.:D
