Some of these aren't fears, but things anyone would be worried about.

You can't exactly say "oh, I don't have a fear about choking to death when I do"

Couldn't help mentioning the article at the bottom of neodude's link. Altering games into a virtual environment in order to treat phobia like 'using Half-Life to treat patients with arachnophobia' and 'Unreal Tournament to treat those with a fear of heights or confined spaces'. I'm gonna go swim in an ocean on World of Warcraft, I have a fear of swimming in open, deep water lol...
