Dude no offense, but I think your answer is way out of the question here... he was asking on how these sort of games have an impact on one's behavior. I think you should read carefully the topic before you post a response. Thanks

Personally I think its a "YES". In a way they do contribute to violent behavior and I think that it is not appropriate that a child would play such games. Besides this kind of games doesn't even teach a single good value to a player. For me I would allow only someone play that game if they have already a strong foundation or sense of wisdom on what is right and wrong. But for someone young like our kids to be playing these kinds of game it makes me worry and makes me think on how this games will impact our childrens lives.
