A study showed that people who play games respond quicker in emergency situations, so it can kind of be like a training for real life if you have things blowing up around you or whatever.
The kid? He was trying to be cool, I doubt he actually knew what a dildo was but there's a cheat on GTA that turns all weapons into dildos and you can beat people to death with them. Also he was five and a bit of an attention grabber. He shouldn't really have played GTA, but like I said I don't think it's had any effect in his development.

do you think games which puts you in the place of the person you are playing changes your outlook like for example in the popular Grand Theft Auto series would youngsters driving around the game like a lunatic affect the way they drive in reality. or does killing and robbing people make you more violent in real life
I don't feel more violent but sometimes when I wasn't listening to a conversation I feel like rewinding it. Sky+ does that to you.
No but when COD4 first came out, I had played a marathon 12 hour session on it, and later was walking into town... saw a friend of mine in the distance coming towards me, and for a split second GENUINELY wondered why his name wasn't floating above his head
