It's hard to watch this IGN review without seeing tons of spoilers. Awful.

Im happy to see such high scores. (Such ridiculously high scores lol). I knew there was no way it could flop, but there was still a part of me that was slightly worried a game of this magnitude wouldnt live up to the hype. Glad to hear that it has.
Its Great.

Calls Trevor one of the greatest criminals ever, game or movie.

-Or perhaps you dive right into the game’s story problems, or its serious issues with women.
-GTA V is a complicated and fascinating game, one that fumbles here and there and has an unnecessary strain of misogynistic nastiness running through it.
-[...] casts his reservations aside to help him take degrading photos of a female celebrity.
-These moments of hypocrisy and inconsistency diminish the otherwise strong characters;
-Thankfully, the missions are frequently incredible, which makes it a bit easier to overlook [...] the mixed political messages
On a less positive note, it’s deeply frustrating that [...] GTA V has little room for women except to portray them as strippers, prostitutes, long-suffering wives, humorless girlfriends and goofy, new-age feminists we’re meant to laugh at.
-Characters constantly spout lines that glorify male sexuality while demeaning women, and the billboards and radio stations of the world reinforce this misogyny, with ads that equate manhood with sleek sports cars while encouraging women to purchase a fragrance that will make them “smell like a *****.”
With nothing in the narrative to underscore how insane and wrong this is, all the game does is reinforce and celebrate sexism.
Yes, these are exaggerations of misogynistic undercurrents in our own society, but not satirical ones.
-GTA V is an imperfect game [...] inconsistent character behavior, muddled political messages and rampant misogyny.
-Your time in Los Santos may leave you with a few psychological scars
Written by a feminist reviewer apparently.
