Default GTA Real Life Driving

So I have been on a binge with GTA 3. Today I was driving and I passed a car stopped at a red light and went through without really thinking about it. Has this happened to anyone else, and is this proof that GTA should be banned?

I have not had this happen to me. And I'd classify it as "proof that you're retarded"

Yes, it's happened to me. I don't act on it, but playing the game definitely breaks down a lot of the barriers that normal people have set up that make us obey laws and not kill people.

What annots me is that I get really upset when there aren't sub machine guns hidden at various points around my neighbourhood.

I once got a hooker and banged her in a dark alley. She got out and I killed her.

sure enough, I got my money back. Thanks Rockstar!

I never actually did anything like the OP but when I used to play GTA I could tell that my mind was making a connection to the game's environment while I was driving in real life, and that by itself was enough to scare me into thinking this game is not such a good idea.
