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.

Immoral

I am amazed how parents and kids are rating this game as 12+ and 13+... And on top of that as a "great game". Hello?? This game promotes violence, thievery, burglar, murder, cussing... What are you teaching?? Even an adult, out of sense of moral, shouldn't be playing this "game".

This game seems pretty bad for children, but if you teach them that the stuff in the game is bad there is a high probability that they won’t do it in the real world, and if you sometimes play the game with your kid you can feel how they will act and you can learn what your kid is playing.
