Being maimed or even essentially enslaved are some of the things that happen. If "for spectacle" means "for no narrative reason" then i guess not, if it means "for shock" then i'd say yes as the moments/reveals are meant to be shocking

People really need to stop using the term gaslighting interchangeably with lying. Lying is NOT necessarily gaslighting. Gaslighting requires the purposeful manipulation and deception of a person and/or their environment in order to make them mistrust their own perception of reality. In this case, it was not gaslighting.

There's so much. In addition to what other posters have said. There's a scene where you walk through a prison of sorts to talk to someone. This person is busy torturing someone. The people in cells that you walk by have clearly not been treated well and will flinch away from you as if scared.

Throughout the entire game you have to squeeze through tight spaces, which could trigger claustrophobia in some people. There are multiple scenes which have the player hiding in locations such as walls and vents, with the camera shifting to reflect how tight the spaces are.

Potentially, it's not super apparent but Ellie says towards the end of the game (after looking a bit more thin) that she "doesn't eat" so it's implied, and she also refuses breakfast at the beginning of the game and also sandwiches around the same time. So it's not apparent but if you pick up on subtle actions, it might seem that way.

A charecter gets called the D slur which is slightly mentioned at the start of the game and then shown on screen towards the end.

A few news outlets claim Lev is trans misrepresentation but his portrayal is pretty authentic (i.e. he is played by a non-cisgender person) and I haven’t heard any actually trans people complain about him.

The two main couples that show up in the game are around the same age as each other.
Joel and Ellie have a father/daughter relationship so age gap doesn’t apply to them

There's a scene which implies two characters have sex, but the act isn't shown. There's a skippable sex scene later in the game.

A scene somewhat near the beginning of the same involves a car crashing into a pole and lake, and another scene near the middle of the game involves a car falling off of a hill while on fire. Both scenes are in a third-person perspective, and the player along with the characters involved in both situations survive.

Blood is very common, usually coming from enemies and used as a damage indicator on the player. Gore ranges from showing open wounds to entire limbs being shot off of bodies.

A main character attempts to drown someone near the end of the game, but chooses not to. There's an option to ensure the player can't drown during swimming sections in the settings menu.

Guns are a mandatory part of the game, with almost every character using them at some point. Using and customizing your guns is a core mechanic of the game.
