Did we miss something on diversity?

this game not as bad as any other gta

my son played this and before i said no but then i read that the male full frontal nudity was in it and i was like my son is not going to be seeing that. but then my sons friends dad told me the player has the ability to skip missing skits with are seen before every mission. so that ability makes this game no were as close as bad. and all the strip clubs are owned by other biker gangs and u don't go in them if u do u get killed right away and the strippers run away when u get attacked so you don't see them. but you are in a biker gang so there will be violence. so don't always follow the back off the game case
