Did we miss something on diversity?

Beautiful film noir-esque platformer is also eerie and violent

Limbo is an astounding video game that combines dark, foreboding artwork and an atmospheric soundtrack with bloody and sometimes disturbing gameplay. Though your character is only seen in silhouette, the player will still witness oil-colored jets of what is obviously blood as you experience death by bear traps, poison darts, spikes, and more. You're pursued by a creepy giant spider that stabs its victims. For puzzle fanatics, however, the game also has some tricky conundrums that provide as a tension-breaking challenge to keep the game's pace. For lovers of horror and video games alike, this is a great choice for mature kids and up.

LIMBO is my favorite game EVAR!

This game should be fine for most people with the gore filter on (which I do). If you don't, there are some kinda gross death scenes. Aside from that, the puzzles are very challenging and the game never gets old.
