I personally am unsure, I mean what is the harm in playing the game if you just play it for the missions and storyline? If you are mature enough to understand the different between reality and fiction, then what is wrong? Many will say that it promotes criminality, yet look at movies such as The Godfather, could you not argue that it promotes the same thing?
I have watched the Godfather more times than I can count, and so far, I haven't commited and crimes. ;)
However, I think the "participation" in the game is different than just watching a movie. I am sure if you do a search, you can find all kinds of studies either way about whether game playing has any effect on people.
If I were a game player, I think that GTA is just a dumb premise for a game. But that's just me. :blush:
