Sorry if I am "necroing" this thread. Since the game arrived and my H and I have played some of it, just came back to say:
1) I can see what some folks meant when they said that this game is trying to be as unPC as possible. Considering the way it's presented, it's very much so. Everything about the game is MEANT to be as offensive and irreverent as possible and make some folks chuckle.
2) Still can see the strip bar being triggery to some BSs (as well as playing Trevor - really, we get to play a psycho who is also an OM? - and the tennis coach, and apparently Michael and Amanda are MHs). If anything, it's that it's a little too realistic. The strippers look like real people. The acts depicted are real (and the "mini-game" is a LONG time to be groping a stripper and then following her home - so a long time to be triggered). The OPs in our lives are real people. It's not about whether the strippers are "hot" or "ugly" or whatever, just like it wasn't about that with the OPs. So the realness might actually be a trigger for some.
3) Yes, the violence - everything from running over the cops to killing dozens of people over petty cash/their cars to the near-constant curse word diarrhea ETA to the friggen' torture scene - well, I'll just say about the violence - sh*t. A lot of this stuff is really messed up, or maybe I'm just not in the space to separate it from reality. Hasn't even been two days and I already miss COD 6, and that game full of migraine-inducing gunfire wasn't exactly peaceful either...
On another note, should I be concerned that my H had no trouble with the torture scene that involved removing a man's tooth? Twice.
