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.

I played the first one when I was 4 and holy moses I loved, then I played the 2nd and 3rd one, eventually I heard these gruesome ass games were remastered in a collection. Re-doing the graphics made these phenomenal games better. (Note:The first one is known as one of the top 10 games ever made by several critics)

Amazing Collection of Bioshock 1 2 and Infinite

This is a game collection of the original Bioshock, Bioshock 2, and Bioshock infinite. It also include's the Bioshock 2 DLC Minerva's den, and the Bioshock Infinite DLC Burial at sea. And these games might be very cool, but they are not for kids. These games have a lot of violence, have a lot of swearing, has both sexual and drug references. You can drink alcohol and get drunk as a result. A couple of kids in the game smoke cigarettes. And the social/political backdrop of one fictional city, set in the year 1912, has the use of derogatory ethnic/racial terms. So all in all, I think that this game is amazing but shouldn't be played by kids under the age of 18.
