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.

no sex just women in bikinis so it’s nothing different to going to a public beach and violence is what it is

A Great game but not for kids!

The game is set in 80s Japan during the bubble economy - which means that the backdrop is a time of sex, booze and gangsters. Which should be enough to keep kids away from the title. The story is great, it is about a young guy who is framed for murder and is trying to find his way in the world of the Yakuza, big buisness and trying to figure out what like is about. The game actually has two MCs, the other one is a Yakuza who has fallen from grace and is trying to get back into the game. Both MCs are pretty moral (as in they don't want to kill anyone and try their best to be as good as they can be). All in all one of my fave games but not one I will ever let my kids play (until they are old enough) especially with the VERY stark sexual themes (which are in a lot of mini games and impact the main story).

This title has:

Great role models
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
