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.

Can be fun for pre-teens

My husband and I play this game with our 11 year old and a couple of other friends. We play on a PvE server, avoiding PvP activity. There is a lot of combat, but it's not gruesome. Teamwork is very necessary. There is a language filter, though the F word gets through sometimes in world chat. Players can't take their underwear off, so no one's ever completely naked. Some very helpful items, like permanent riding mounts, cost real money. Overall we've found it an acceptable world to explore as a family.
