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.

      Twitch has 183 million viewers versus 594 million for YouTube. That's like, 5 times the number.

              Youtube, fortnite, multiplayer games, toxic loot boxes and cash shops, developers who put loot boxes in single player now. This is all thanks to online gaming and greed. Epic made billions of fortnite slutty cosmetics. 😂 gaming is a scam now.

                      We need to take a stand! YouTube is destroying game creators! Our favorite games could be lost, inly a blurry memory! We need to stand up for what we, gamers, a community, think is right. Who's with me?!?!?

                      Now to those lost games and creators of those games, I give you this: 💓💕💖💗💝💞💟

                                  The only thing Youtube is good for is making gamers crave for more of what they are not recieving. Watching and playing violent games doesn't make you violent, they can't compare millions of gamers that feed the gaming industry (and also the stupid companies that won't let their advertisements near the greatest games) with the two lonely cats that have issues and can't disern between a game and reality. bleh. Ultimately they are losing more and more the public for their ads and stuff, even becoming agressive putting ads into your soup but then again, people can ignore it, or get enraged, and enraged people often fire back at them giving the companies the middle finger. This situation will come to a point sooner than later for more platform that care for the creators, to access the competitive market and make a place for themselves. People want what people want, and they'll have to learn eventually to suck it up :l time will tell.

                                        Hey Game Theorists, If you don't thing Youtube has an agenda, you're wrong. They do it in gaming and they do it in certain countries (United States). Check out Steven Crowder and what they did to him. They'll do it to anyone.

                                                                                        I mean as someone who has high moral standards (is against profanity, violence, needless sexual exposure to an underage audience and drug use) I am kind of glad that companies aren't supporting creators of this kind of material. Call me crazy but I think it's not impossible to make fun games that are family friendly and that don't promote violence or mature themes. There are already plenty of games like that out there. While I understand the vast majority of games are not for kids and are made for mature audiences, I don't believe there should be a double standard concerning morality. What is wrong for a kid is also wrong for an adult. For example if a parent always tells their kid not to curse, smoke or have sex outside of marriage and yet they themselves do and have done that all of the time, is that not hypocritical? Maybe our society should have higher moral standards because as it is, people in America seem to have little to no moral standards and a huge lack of discipline. You are not entitled to act however you want but you should treat others with respect and understand that people have kids. When you're in public maybe you shouldn't be yelling f bombs because people have children that they don't want to be influenced to speak in an unintelligent and immature way. It all comes down to America being much too liberal and individualized (not thinking about the health of our society as a whole but being selfish). I don't think we should be 100% conservative with everything but if we're far too liberal then we become like spoiled brats believing that we should be able to act however we want and that is just obnoxious.
