Did we miss something on diversity?

But you must be a freaking imbecile to think that this is for a kid. You might as well just shoot someone in front of your kid if you let him/her play this. For the adults who like good video games, this is what you want. This game is claimed to be one of the best video games ever made. That should tell you enough.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
