What a crock. Video games do not help you develop social skills.

Playing online? DEFINITELY doesn't help you develop social skills?
Playing SP offline? No.
Playing multiplayer offline? Yes, but that's just because you're around PEOPLE. Doing ANYTHING with other people helps develop social skills. If you want a strong personality, surround yourself with people that have strong personalities. Video games are not the key.
