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.

The best gta DLC

Violence is the bases of this game. You can free roam around the city, killing anybody you want. You could even decapitated people with a sword or blow their heads off with a shotgun, and blood will be gushing all over.
