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.

For mature audience or adults preferably.

It’s ok for say mature 17 year olds and up…. That’s really all I can say. I don’t particularly agree with kids and teens playing videos games that promote them killing people for entertainment. Changing the settings to exclude blood still doesn’t change the fact that kids are playing a game shooting people…. Let’s look at the statistics of violence among this age group. Why are parents still letting their kids play these games? Absentee parenting is winning…. Makes no sense to me but to each their own.

Apex is a good game.

Apex Legends is the best battle royale game I have ever played. Don’t hesitate to play this game, it has many characters and different play styles you can choose. Gameplay is extremely fast if I compare it to the other games, so you may have motion-sickness issues. Sometimes in-game events are boring but I don’t really care because I normally play casual one. Server is better than before, I don’t have server issues that much. I rarely see some hackers and cheaters in a game, probably this is the only problem that should be fixed. About the in-game shop, this game is not pay to win, you can get characters by playing several matches but if you want skin or heirloom, you can pay for them. Most skin is perfectly designed but as I said you don’t have to pay for them. The game story is worth following, some character stories according to the other character stories, I recommend you to read the character stories you will love for sure. About balanced in-game, some characters are too powerful but they still do not get nerf. On the other hand, some characters are too weak but they still don't buff those characters. New character's gameplay is very interesting and powerful (except Rampart). I hope upcoming characters will be more creative than now. The last thing I want to say is social in game. Unfortunately, most of the time I played I have seen many toxic players but I recommend you should mute or don’t pay attention to them. Few times I have seen a good person, I hope they will be nice to others too. If you have your friends playing with at least one person, it should be great (but don’t be rude to the other one in match, okay?).
