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.

M rating went way up- not a game for teens

This game is not appropriate for mid teens. It has lesbian exploration, marijuana greenhouses, other drug paraphernalia, cursing and violence everywhere. I gave it a 17- a hard 17 or 18 years of age. It was uncomfortable to watch. I am liberal and open minded about gaming but not for an innocent 16 yo. Objectively the graphics are vivid and the game is exciting but disturbing. Adults would probably like the game but it was a real shock for me. It did not seem like the parent reviews on your site were necessarily written by adults. How do you verify that?
