A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this game.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that That's You is a downloadable party quiz game for a group of people on cell phones, tablets, and the PlayStation 4. Some of the questions, themes, and images are irreverent, including references to sex, drinking, and violence. Pictures and images have blood, and there are references to getting drunk, as well as scantily clad images of women and implied oral sex. It's not as controversial as some mature card games (like Cards Against Humanity), but parents should know there's some off-color questions and humor here.

What's it about?
THAT'S YOU is a new, irreverent quiz game. This digital download challenges you and up to five friends to answer questions about each other, draw pictures, snap silly selfies, and more. The better you know who you're playing with, the more points you'll likely rack up. Questions you might answer include "Which of your family members would survive longest in the wild?" or "Who among you is the worst chef?" You'll use your finger to draw pictures, vote on doodles, share on social medial (if desired), and try to earn the most points to win the game. The themes range greatly -- from movie trivia and childhood memories to crime and camping -- and are spread out across 10 different themed locations.
Is it any good?
If you can look past the repetitive questions and the setup challenges of phones not finding the game console, this is an extremely fun social game for teens and adults. Just as with the snarky host of the You Don't Know Jack pop culture trivia series, the That's You narrator is funny, and the questions, photos, and selfies are even funnier. Even those who don't play games often will likely enjoy the humor, variety, and accessibility of That's You. As the name suggests, That's You is all about you -- from the first time you take your selfie and see it on the screen to the personalized answers and faces on your mobile device. Heck, you can even add your own questions.
A great activity is Picture Game, where one player gets singled out and the others pick from a group of pictures depicting actions based on what the singled-out player would do in a given situation. There are some mini-games, too, sprinkled throughout the game sessions, which last about an hour apiece. Even better, That's You is a free game with a PlayStation Plus subscription, and after October 24, it will be $19.99, which is well worth the price.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about mature content in games. Because many of this game's 1,000 or so questions skirt around mature topics, should it receive a "Mature" rating, or is the "Teen" label enough? Are question games with themes like sex and violence better than games that let players act such themes out?
Talk about party games. Do you think the mix of cell phones and tablets with the PS4 enhances the party game experience?
