Yesterday IGN unveiled the debut gameplay trailer for the long-awaited Grand Theft Auto V on YouTube, eliciting upwards of 4,400 comments in less than 24 hours.

Some of those comments, of course, are bound to be outrageous, offensive, gross, or borderline illiterate. But you’d already know that if you were following Grand Theft Auto V Trailer Comments, a single-serving Tumblr that sets comments against serene sunsets and tropical beaches. The effect is like some sort of reverse inspirational poster.

Trailers for GTA V—which looks to expand characterization and “open-world” play—have been around for the better part of a year, so the blog reaches back seven months. Over that span of a time, a few patterns have emerged.

One notable effect of the trailers on gamers has been of a sexual nature:

At least one other fan remarked that he “did not know it was possible to jizz out of every orifice.” A fairly messy discovery. Then there’s the, um, racial element, which gets far worse than what we’ve sampled here:


Finally, you have the plain-old product complaints, from the graphics and the cars to the whole ongoing PC/console war. The strippers and other scantily clad women get rave reviews for the most part, however. And when you get right down to it, you know that however they choose to nitpick Rockstar Games, every single one of these dudes is going to be lined up outside the store (or shop) on release day:
