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.

Good Free Game but consumerism can ruin the experience

Whilst the game itself isn't violent, the addictive nature of the gambling with loot boxes may be too much for younger kids to handle. Loot boxes could cause children to become fixated on unlocking them which would lead to them spending too much

Alcohol reference

Genshin Impact is a fun game for tweens/teens. The game shows mild violence but no blood, gore or corpses. The entities simply turn into dust when killed. Another thing is the alcohol reference. In Mondstadt (an imaginary city in Genshin Impact) there is a wine industry which is talked about a lot. Some of the characters drink alcohol and one character works in the industry. Personally, I don't see a big problem with the alcohol reference because it doesn't promote minors to drink and doesn't go into detail about drunkness. Some characters like Arataki Itto do not wear shirts but its not really an issue.
