A report in the Stockton Record, a local rag of Stockton, California, says that residents have been severely, and negatively, effected by GTA 4.

Titled "Grand Theft Auto IV Criticized by Stocktonians," the story cites interviews with two people who say GTA has adversely affected their lives.

“My son Peter was never really aggressive,,” claims Greg Within, “but once he got into video games, GTA being one of them, he started to push, hit, talk back, and just become a different person."

Meanwhile, young (and douchy) videogamer Mark Wellis, 19, blamed his bad behavior on the game too, saying that he was involved in an altercation a week after he purchased the game. During the “altercation” he happened to notice that he had become less sensitive to violence. Well, isn’t that insightful and self-realizing of him? And he just happen to notice this while involved in a fight? Coulda maybe not gotten into the fight in the first place, if you were so friggin’ insightful…but that wouldn’t be GTA-influenced behavior, now would it?
