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.

bad judgement in writing

I was slightly ambivalent after S1E1, but decided to give it the benefit of doubt. It's quite gamer nerdy, and full disclosure, I'm an IT professional, and although not a gamer, I know and understand that world. However, they crossed a line for me in S1E2 when they paraphrase a quote by Martin Niemöller about the Holocaust, relating it to changes in games. Problems with a game vs annihilation of people has no comparison. I guess most people won't remember, know or relate to the quote, but the writers clearly do, and the choice to use it is a sign of very bad judgement. I possibly would have stuck around a bit longer, but that mistake spoiled it for me
