Yes it could increase the amount of crimes in little kids as they watch their older brothers or dad play this with all the stealing and everything. If this was banned and not made anymore then crime would reduce in the future and little kids wouldnt be as bad through there school career. I bet there would be less high speed chases in the future and drug busts in both school and out on the streets. Whoever made this game is probably not the smartest person on earth cause it is almost the worst example of life ever.

Firstly your argument is false. Video games do not have a direct cause and effect relation to actual crime. Secondly you said that it's the worst example of life ever. But it is a showing of life at the bottom rung of society. Criminals actually do exist and they do commit crimes. So in effect Rockstar games is quite smart because they actually have an example of real life for some. Thirdly Gta isn't made for kids and isn't marketed to children. It has a well deserved m rating (equal to r in movies) so minors aren't able to buy it.Fourthly and finally I am a staunch believer in freedom of speech and anti censorship. Not everything is rainbows and cupcakes in the real world and people should have the freedom and the right to do what they want with their own money

Crime rates don't correlate with video games. That's a scientific fact. I'd suggest you look at a few news articles about each point you make ( even arguments against you that you're simply acknowledging) and make sure you have everything correct. You just gave your opponent a leg up in the debate and it's not even correct.
Just a little piece of advice.

Reasons for voting decision: First I want to explain my agreements reason. The con position is grand theft auto shouldn't be banned. The person in the con postiton should have been pro. Forfeits give pro conduct and argument points. The use of the English language was less butchered by pro. Also pro had more convincing points.
