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.

This Was One of My Favorite Games

This was one of my favorite games. I am a 30 year old woman and I’ve been a gamer for most of my life. I myself got the platinum trophy for this game but never messed with the online features in which members of the game can create their own LBP world. Herein lies the problem. I decided since the game was quite innocent when I played it that it would be age appropriate for my 5 and 10 year old. I WAS WRONG. I have walked in the room to find my son playing in someone’s homemade LBP world and some are highly graphic including blood, gore, and songs that are inappropriate for kids. Today was the last straw and I finally decided to delete the game completely as I walked in on my 5 year old playing someone’s LBP level that featured 2 nude women bent over spreading their butt cheeks. Yep, you read that right. And then underneath the pornographic image is a character holding an axe dripping with blood. The game offers no way to flag this as inappropriate other than “reporting” it for review. They never take the inappropriate worlds down. DO NOT let your kids play this. If you do, supervise them. I didn’t, because I trusted that this game was safe for kids. IT IS NOT.

Ahh Good times with ye old ps3

Parents if you want to know by an adult this game has a great learning experience why? it teaches you basic logic And, Or, XOR, inverted gates and those are basic concepts we use to create the technology we have today. And if you buy i recommend getting the PS4 Edition the reason why is because the developers has no ongoing services for ps3 so if your game will lag a lot if you get the ps3 or worse freeze and it cant be fixed also oddsock is the cutest character

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Easy to play/use
