    Does playing GTA, change your mindset towards women?

    In the 'Grand Theft Auto' series, one of the world’s top-selling video game franchises, players can have sex with women and then kill them, and a new study aims to prove that it effects young boys.

    Here we go again, yet another new study into the effects of violence in video games when it comes to our young kids (boys) playing them and how it might screw up their mindset when it comes to dealing with real-life problems and their feelings towards in this case women, and as usual the researchers have focused on that very bad, but popular video game called 'Grand Theft Auto'.

    Sometimes I wonder, if Rockstar Games and developers behind GTA, had called it anything else but 'Grand Theft Auto', it would have not been so picked-on by the mainstream media in their on-going battle against bad violence in video games, but anyhow what are your thoughts on this 'new study' into the problem, does sexist games like GTA change your empathy towards females, or not?

      Questions:
      1) What was their opinion before playing the games?
      2) Which games and what portion of the games did they play?
      3) Did they try a similar thing with pictures male victims of domestic violence?

      The problem with this kind of study is that I can see it being easy to perform it in a way which could alter the results.

      The game is not meant to be played by young boys. Its a M rated game for a reason.

      Another joke study churned out from the fake field known as social science. Not only did they only use a sample size of 150 kids, all Italians, likely from the same area and background but they didn't even attempt to measure these kids so called "empathy toward women" before the study actually began. Complete joke, at one point Sociology was a real science but at some point it was just taken over by self-flagellating nanny-state ideologues that see anything fun as bad because they hate themselves, probably because they spent years and hundreds of thousands of dollars on a useless degree.

      Proof again that those that believe in feminism don't understand the scientific process.
