There are lots of people like that but many people won't admit it and many people will laugh at you for it (see above), but oh well. My RL friends give me crap about being scared of water in games all the time. There are some games I just can't play because of it, and i've tried many times to suck it up.. but I get extremely nervous and just end up quitting because I feel like i'm going to have a panic attack or something.
Now games like WoW, or GW2.. are easy for me since you can see through the water pretty well. As you said, it's not really a fear of water.. but fear of the unknown. Strange thing is, I can play games that involve darkness like Amnesia and it's still no where NEAR as scary for me as swimming in water that I can't see the bottom of. I know there's people that can't even beat FEAR and I think to myself "HOW? Wasn't scary at all.."
