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.

Its really not bad

This game is truly not as bad as everybody says it is. It is mainly the fans that give the game an older mentality rating. As somebody who has played the game, it really doesn't require a mentality over the age of 11 or 10. Just let them play it.

JUST LET THEM PLAY IT! ITS NOT AS BAD AS PARENTS GUIDE SAYS!!!!!!!!

People. This game is NOT what everybody says it is. A LOT of the things mentioned in the parent's guide does not happen in the game. The level of maturity that it takes to play this game is I promise you MUCH lower than it seems. Nothing happens related to sucking d**k. I was very confused when the parents' guide said this. A lot of the things people are saying are very over-exaggerated. Just let your child play this game. Its really not that bad.
