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.

Entertained by kids shooting other kids?

I think this is a horrible show. This show depicts teens/young adults shooting, stalking, and killing other teens, all disguised as just a "video game". Live action includes snobbish/angry teens sneaking up on other teens and shooting other them in the back of the head execution style. Have the producers of this insanity lost their minds? Why would anyone glorify this behavior in the light of school shootings in our country? The video game theme appeals to "tweens", but the content and language is extremely inappropriate. This is very disturbing.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
