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.

age 16+

A little too hard to be fun.

This a gorgeous, deeply atmospheric game with an incredible story and a difficulty curve that - for some - ruins the whole thing. Make sure your kid really wants to play it before dropping 60 bucks. The nudity rating is warranted. The second act features the torso of a naked women welded onto a spider. Hair just barely covers the nipples, and oversized breasts bounce with each step.

Too much sex
age 12+

Great game, a little hard for younger kids.

Honestly this game is fine. I know that there are parents that take game ratings as requirements, but having a kid waith until they are 18 to play Cod or rdr2 is craziness. The chances that your kid will shoot up a school because of playing cod is sliiiiim to none. This game should be 12+ or 9+. The media takes violence too seriously. You are killing demons as an undead knight. I know that tat might leave a bitter taste in your mouth, but if your kid is set on getting this game and is 12 and older at least 9 then it should be fine.

This title has:

Great role models
Easy to play/use
