    It’s between e-celebs and game journos. Discord’s pretty bad too but I’d rather be in a boring dead air lobby than have games neutered cause some journo or celeb is too much of a fucking tard to play it right. Or have them encourage more painful movie game shlock mediocrity by pretending it’s the second coming of christ.

    Money determines everything. They make more money on collecting your data, using it to manipulate people, then lowering the amount of effort that they use to make the game. They don't even have a reason to make games as we knew them , they now just put all their profits into learning how to manipulate and drain their audiences with growing efficiency.

    >discord
    If your community got torn appart by discord drama, power-hungry gays and circlejerking, it was a bad community to begin with.
    >twitch and other ecelebery
    It's counterbalanced. Some of the biggest ecelebs are actually real gamers and not just posers.
    >gaming journos and "news" sites/channels
    Problem here is the loud minority. Vast majority of gaming "journalists" just write unnoticeable articles that get posted on Ganker anyway - the screechy blue-hair type are just for polemic's sake.
    Anyone with anything worthwhile to say turned to content creation anyway.
    >microtransactions
    Actually a good thing. You can get many games at a reduced price and target whales in game.
    >trans people
    If your "community" can be ruined by some screeching gay in a dress, it deserved to die anyway. And depending on whether they're the autistic or gay kind of chud, they'll probably turn into a modder or lolcow. If their mere existence bothers you, have sex.

    >something else
    Big studios NEVER trying to innovate gameplay wise to reassure investors who want their quarterly returns. That's the poison.

          I didn't understand a word you just typed so I'm assuming you were born after 9/11 which means you don't get to voice your opinion on what killed video games.

    microtransactions by far, devs do so much scummy shit with them that is just making games worse.
    Game journos are just scum but as far as im aware their influence is getting less and less over time.
    Trannies are speedrunning becoming worse than microtransactions but they aren't quite there yet.
    Eceleb gayry is whatever, sure they're annoying but i don't see how they affect single player games at all outside of fanbase shit.
    Discord is whatever, its annoying to have everything try to be some kind of multiplayer shit, and people putting resources in discords that should be on wikis or websites, but its tertiary stuff so meh.

    The root of all problems was women getting into vidya. They pulled all the other shit you listed in there and much more.

      Allows for a quicker and more explicit structuring of communities such that hierarchies end up being established with direct ways to enact it via server rules which are easier to set up for the layman on discord.

    Gaming becoming big business is the only reason it went to shit. Now it's all about turning every last thing into "resource" and squeezing every last bit of profit from it without doing any actual work.
