Random autistic fears thread.
I had this autistic fear for as long as I can remember. I feared anything having to do with an end of something. This includes powering off something, game over screens, and bad endings.
I also had an autistic fear of fonts from a young age. Specific, "crazy" looking typefaces also scared me plenty.
Also, for some reason, hearing the words "Goodbye", "power off", or another word of the sort. There used to be a toy in my sister's room (as a kid I had to sleep in there) which would nudge out of nowhere and automatically turn off after 5 minutes or so, but not before saying "Goodbye". It scared me.
Game over screens especially gave me the heebie jeebies. Still do to an extent, which leads me not to play video games at night.
Game over screens that scare me include:>Misao: Definitive Edition
The bloody text and the empty sounding music scared me plenty.>Waxworks
This one's more logical. You see gruesome pics of your dead body in the game, and to add to it is some scary music. I have a lot to say on this.>Mario 64 death screen, Zelda 2 Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
