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.

Great game but...

First I would like to say the game is very fun and a good game overall. But I have no clue how this game did not get an adults only rating. Seriously , from now on no game should ever have an adults only rating. I mean there is a whole part in the game that takes place during a 100% pork scene. So yeah if that gets a pass than all games from now on should get a pass. I actually don't like game ratings but if we are going to make a rating system than you should actually use it! Not just pick and choose who gets a pass because they paid you more money to look the other way. Because God knows that's the only logical way that this game didn't get an adult only rating.

Too much sex
