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.

Tremendous game

I very tremendous game. Favorite one I have played in fact. It has quite simple controls. If you are worried about the strip club part it has no nudity. No sex moments in the game. It has some blood but if your child isn’t afraid of this it should be fine. There is a part where there is an abusive father but your character Kara saves the daughter. You switch between 3 characters. A cop named Connor, A helper Android named Markus who will lead a revolution or lead protests for Android rights, and last a nanny Android named Kara who tries to find a safe place for a child. It is a 10/10 game I suggest it.

made your choice

note m!?! Is you're kidding me. I've never seen such a bullshit. Frankly the most blood is blue. It's not gta 5 or life is strange. you are technically not an outlaw but a robot, created to help humans, but, disaster, humans this rebel saying that robots steal their jobs. robots are not respected or even insulted. it's up to you to decide to take revenge (without torture or some shooting, it's not a shooting game) or to use non-violence. a great anti-discrimination or rascism model pushing you to use non-violence. it's a real masterpiece that will embellish your son's evenings
