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.

Has problems

The game itself is great, but the people on there are horrible. We don't play on quickchat because you cant say anything, so we do free chat, where people are dating or swearing on servers. If your kids play this, you will be hearing the words "sus" and "sussybaka a lot.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Not good for the current audience of ten and up

I am a school counselor and I am concerned about the open unmonitored chat on this game. I am hoping the developers will have a sense of responsibility and monitor it or increase the age limit I have suggested to over 18. I am very concerned about the impact it could have on young kids. It is promoting bullying and worse situations.
