Game Theory: YouTube is Ruining Gaming!

    So E3 just happened and it got me thinking a lot about which of the announced games will be the next big game here on YouTube. The answer? None of them. You see, none of these games will be able to do what Minecraft and Fortnite have done on the platform. Not internet darling Keanu Reeves in Cyberpunk 2077, not Deathloop, or any other game. You see, despite the coming launch of Google Stadia, they have built a platform that will not support it. Sit back and hold your favorite game close, Loyal Theorists, the future isn't looking bright.

        I think Cyberpunk 2077 will become a failure since youtube is a hardcore liberal

              I dont think Google is gonna fight itself but do the scumeist move possible and monopolize the violence and mature gaming content and stadia is the perfect thing to come in and take that audience

                              You should change your name to The Game Hypothesists, a theory is something that has been proven and peer-reviewed to be true after all ;) So "Just a theory" is pretty great, "Just a hypothesis" is where you have an idea about how something works you actually want criticism on to find possible issues with. A very picky comment since we know what you mean, but considering all the anti-science nowadays it might be helpful for a channel as respected as yours to shine some light on "due scientific process" and how mankind generates what we consider to be facts :)

                                  What I find baffling is that mature content IS a thing. It's quite a popular thing and I happen to know that there are plenty of fairly large advertisers that even rely on more mature content. So why then is YouTube taking an anti maturity stance? It's absolutely bizarre that creators have to rely on Patreon when YouTube could be connecting them with these more open-minded advertisers and making a ton of money in the process. Not to mention helping their platform grow instead of crippling it, which is kinda what they're doing atm. It's like saying "Don't pick up the pennies. They're not worth the time." except that there's $3 billion worth of pennies laying on the floor x_x

                                            And how are we as consumers supposed to stop this or tell youtube that we don't want them to censor things to this degree? It seems like we don't have any good recourse for these actions.

                                                      YouTube is NOT KILLING GAMES. Ridiculous. The gaming industry is ruining games. The people speaking to the issues within the games are merely providing a service regarding content within the relevant games. Stay in your bubble and keep listening to your echo chamber. Games built in YouTube?? Stupid. Never coming back. First and last time here. Fool me once, shame on you. Ignorant kids will swallow your tripe to their detriment. You’re dead to me

If gaming companies advertise on YouTube their own games and put their ads in that all expanding territory, it means that their Games that are already mature get to gamers that watch gaming videos that are mature, and because advertisements are fueling the mature content again, the influencers can get money for showing off mature games, and it becomes a look of them putting an investment into the community that then promotes their products for free anyways. I keep getting random ads for stuff I don't care about, what if most of, if not all gaming videos had ads for more games that you could buy? Hell I found some games like Bloodlines 2 THROUGH YouTube ads. This could work!
