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.

old game

i played all old grand theft autos from ages 10-11 and then got gta v the day after my 12th birthday. i'm a female (not that it should make a difference) but playing never caused anything as was exposed to language elsewhere and violence is visible in many cartoons. its an old and outdated game, even in newer gta v you never really see gore etc just red splatters. giving your child access if they want is a good idea, as trust me, if not, they will probably find alternatives.
