Wonder if anybody can get this... (This is my first puzzle with this format; apologies if I made it too easy or hard.)

My prefix will scare you,
My infix will restrict you,
And my suffix will uplift you.

My prefix is a game object,
My infix is a game trigger,
And my suffix is loosely relative.

My guess:

Prefix:

Di/Die (afraid to die, or die as in a game piece)

Infix

Stop (as in restrict you or as in trigger stop)

Suffix

ia/pia (ia as in to uplift you 'higher' or pia as in the loosely relative 'peer'

Full word:

Distopia - an imagined state or society in which there is great suffering or injustice

Partial Answer:

The Prefix is Di/Die

Because:

1) Death scares lots of people (thanatophobia)
2) Die is the singular of Dice and is used commonly in board games
