Got acrophobia?

[Mash Tactics airs Monday through Friday at 4p.m. Pacific on Dtoid.TV. Watch Rick 'King Foom' Olson play a variety of games, each day with its own theme. With a heavy focus on community and viewer interaction, you can be as much a part of the show as anything else.]

Allow me to start by saying that I have a huge fear of open heights, as in, I can't even watch footage of people hanging out around the grand canyon without getting somewhat uncomfortable tingles in my feet. So, when I first heard about Skydive: Proximity Flight, I just knew that this was something I had to experience with our live crowd.

Be sure to watch Mash Tactics tonight as we check out this unique game centered around BASE jumping, and see if it's good enough at simulating the experience to give me a good ol' case of vertigo. In reality however, I'm mainly crossing my fingers with hopes that there are at least some good ragdoll physics in place, because I have a feeling that most of the fun this evening will be come from my many, many failed attempts at doing things correctly.

QotD: What are some of your biggest phobias?
