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.

Phenomenal game, I recommend this for your child if they want this game

This game is really good! I don’t understand why it is rated M, it should at least be rated T, because mainly in the game you are just walking around delivering packages to multiple destinations in the world. While there are some moments of combat but that rarely happens. This game advises you to not engage in violence. It encourages you to be peaceful. The story in this game is so beautiful, the environment is peaceful, and kids could learn some good messages in this game as well.
