I dunno, ask the journalist that love to stir that shit up all the time.

Exactly this. Just look at the reaction to Sony and crossplay. They won't shut up about it.

Everyone wants to be " on the right side of history"

If game devs and publishers would stop treating their customers like idiots and with contempt, maybe the gamers wouldn't have become so bitter. Things started to go down hill last gen, when games went from being all about fun to being about quick cash grabs with crappy DLC, Microtransactions and broken and/or buggy games at launch. It was only then that I started to see a change in attitude from gamers towards gaming. The reason why a lot of gamers moan about even the smallest of things is because the trust has been broken, and it's something that may now be impossible to fix. If this was the 6th gen era, you wouldn't see fans get so up in arms over small and trivial things, because back then, there was trust and gamers felt they like they knew where they stood and what they were getting.

Gamers vote with their wallets. Overwhelmingly they want microtransactions unfortunately.

Yes and no. They want MTs for the better quality or popular games. Not every game will succeed regardless of MTs.

Companies are only treating customers like they show them they're willing to be treated.

This is so true. Last gen definitely had a downfall in trust between consumer and developer/publisher. The fact that systems were connected online made it easier to fix problems so the term lazy started to get thrown around. With good reason too

It would seem that way, people are no longer satisfied with personal enjoyment. If the masses don't also agree with their views they have a reason to speak out. This comes from all the parents, teachers, etc telling these talentless, spoiled, do nothings that their thoughts matter and they're special. Now they are motivated to speak, not even bothering to not be idiots first. We are in a "all about me" society now, so if everyone is about self where can any enjoyment be found?
