Here's an unusual story, GTA is actually being portrayed in a positive light for helping to save the life of a family. An 11 year old girl knew from playing GTA the dangers of a potential vehicle rollover. With a bit of quick-thinking, she helped pull out her family members to safety and her Mom commented ""She just knew, from playing 'Grand Theft Auto.' She saw on there that when a car rolls over, it can blow up. She knew that could happen to us."

Many disparage the value of video games and their effect on today's youths.

Karen Norris, of Streator, will say no such thing. Not after her quick-witted 11-year-old daughter, Audrey Plique, sprung to the rescue of their family because a popular video game showed a potential danger of a vehicle rollover.

"She just knew, from playing 'Grand Theft Auto.' She saw on there that when a car rolls over, it can blow up. She knew that could happen to us," Norris said.
In your face, Jack Thompson?

Except do cars really blow up if they roll over? I'm not going to lie, this story is just as ridiculous as articles demonizing GTA, but on the opposite end of the spectrum.

What she didn't learn is to blow up the car intentionally afterward so that she would actually look more badass.

GTA also teaches you that if you leave the little blue and red flashing circle in your mini map for 5 seconds you'll lose the cops until you commit another crime. I wonder when she will start that phase.

:laff::laff: exactly!

I believe that:
First of all, it's a game and everybody should make the difference between it and reality and
Secondly,a game like this can't really "teach" you good stuff. :D It is just an image of reality in which you can do whatever you want!;)

Isn't GTA like, a 16+ game or something? Why the heck is she playing it at her age?
