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 has too many violent and sexual concerns,so do not let a child play this

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much consumerism
not rated for age
Hot Date. A old expansion pack from the first version of the smash game, "The Sims." This expansion pack was one of the best of the lot, it changed the game the most dramatically and was worth the purchase. The addition of a "Downtown" and the ability to go on dates were huge befenits. Downside is the introduction of Sex into the game. This definitly pushes The Sims in to a Late-Teen game. I wouldn't want a 14 year old playing it.
