And that is why they will always fail and also why the industry is dying.
>AAA games fucked themselves by allying with streamers.
Streamers and e-thots are the cancer killing many industries. Not only videogames.
For all the reasons that you pointed out, plus the fact that all those e-failures always got privileges over the products, receiving them for free and thus, always lying about their (lowest ever) quality, becoming all corporate ass-kissers.
The majority of consumers, even among normalfags, noticed that, and now, having a streamer praise any product is (rightfully) seen as a confirmation that said product is shit.
