Grand Theft Auto 5: Does Gaming Influence Behaviours?

With the increase in gaming, there has been much debate surrounding the influence that games have on the behavior of players and whether or not the type of game played actually alters someone’s state of mind. The gaming market is hugely successful with computer, online and console games dominating, with applications of all natures ranging from Mecca Bingo to Call of Duty.

Let's just say yes so this annoying subject won't come up anymore. Yes video games encourage behavior and the parent are not at fault for this.

If it was true then I should be the biggest killer in the world. Quit blaming games everyone. Just because you watch movies also doesn't wanna make me do what I see.

Same here. I actually relieve stress more than anything. I wouldn't ever blame video games, movies, or tv for my son's behavior.

Yes for little kids just like movies

I remember when the Matrix came out. A bunch of idiots in my third grade class were always trying to run up walls.

Of course games affect people's behavior, but it depends on the person. When I see parents buying and letting their kids play games like GTA 5 when they are under 10, it makes me cringe. I mean, it is a topic to focus on but at the end of the day parents just don't need to let their kids play certain games at certain ages.

Hell no. Bad people encourage bad behavior!

For people who are too young to play such games, yes. Which is why they have age ratings, pay more attention parents! How many times does this same argument need to be brought up? Stop sealing with the surface issues, stop being lazy and address the core problems which for the most part is bad parenting.
