Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

I’m actually 14 and I love this game series but Jesus to play this game you need a strong stomach. Many People would find parts of this game very distressing and some cut scenes are extremely brutal. One shows a character getting his knee blown out with a shotgun and brutally bashed with a golf club while his brother gets pistol whipped in the temple. In the end I definitely shouldn’t be playing this game, but I can’t resist and recommend to everyone I think can handle the gore. For adults I definitely recommended. For parents make sure your Child is aware of the content and make sure they can handle it. BTW commonsense is listing me as a adult i didn’t do dis on purpose (:
