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.

A world you can dive into

It's very easy to sink many hours to the game, the world of Eorzea and The First is just very immersive. The story is very dramatic, and you're right in the center of it all. There's violence here, but it is never extremely graphic. Combat isn't the only thing this game offers, kids can enjoy a laidback and casual life here, talking with players in the citystates or take up crafting or gathering supplies in the wilderness for in-game currency, gil. There's lots to do, and the subscription price is well worth the price of admission. Because it is so easy to invest long hours into the game, you may need to monitor your kids' play time.
