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.

You can just be sitting there, checking on them at 2 AM while the crickets outside are chirping and they're sleeping to peaceful music and everything else is quiet. And then you realize, you've grown attached to the lives of little animated people you help out. You realize that this game is really charming and you really enjoy yourself. You realise, you actually care for it. And as soon as you do that the emotion that was there all along is now alot more prominent and will continue to be, as time will go on.
