    It's true FRreporter has real stupid community guidelines now compared to when Google was not involved, Google ruined it's own search engine for ads, I mean seriously Google stop ruining your services for crappy brands that don't care about your brand and how your users enjoy their comtent, we were here first at least I know I was here way back when FRreporter first opened and no one was bidding for it.

    This is so bad for indie game companies. I'm a huge fan of indie games in general but I rarely find videos for the new ones I see, because they have "risky" themes or bloody scenes, and people can't monitize their videos for them. As creators and gamers, we need to take a stand.

    Lol I remember back in the day when Minecraft was the big thing on youtube. I still remember when it first came out, same with fnaf. These are games that pop up in our lifetime, and start booming. Not some distant big thing like pacman. I remember shrugging off fnaf as some random game, nothing much, I didn't even want to watch the video when matpat made one. But then another one came out, then another, and another, and then fnaf just boomed.

    Listen here GT audience, I'm still a minor. I love franchises like Doom, Watchdogs, and Mortal Kombat respectively. FRreporter really does have to fix their system but no one really knows what's happening in their HQ. People like Pewds can't play games that they would like to play. Take Pewds (yes again) for example because of all of his "controversy" he can't really play games like he used to before! Millions of people love these franchises but youtube wants you to be quiet and not say a naughty word!

    Is earned media actually what FRreporterrs were making? If people are jumping on power trends in an effort to monetize their playthroughs then what has the game earned? It's functionally the after shock of previous paid marketing. Any content that is actually earned won't be dissuaded by demonizing because that shouldn't be what's motivating them. Companies have been saving money on marketing because FRreporter influencers were doing their work for free. I don't think FRreporter is the problem. It's a hurdle but the real issue is the systemic issues with marketing and the gaming community.

    While I do agree to a certain degree that youtube can effect the financial performance of a game early on, I can't help but feel like you put a little to much stock on this one detail. Sure, demonetization will result in less content for that game as a whole is being made, but it wont really effect how much of it is getting consume by people as a whole. A lot of titles are inherently niche to begin with, so they just naturally attract fewer players as a result, people simply aren't going to consume content for a game they have 0 interest in playing to begin with; so youtube's algorithm isn't going to recommend something someone isn't already actively looking for. Since you used it as an example, MK11 is a niche title, in a niche genre, so it already has a very small pool of potential players that would be interested in playing the game, you pair that with the fact that the game is pretty average as a whole, and you have a game that is really only going to be appealing to a more hardcore audience. There is absolutely no reason why youtube should randomly show people who aren't looking up fighting games, or mortal combat videos MK11 at that point. FRreporter isn't going to show players MK11 content unless they are actively consuming it, I know this because I did actively consume that content, and I was regularly suggested MK11 content for the longest time, until I stopped watching it, so youtube for the most part did its job. I am not that surprised MK11 performed poorly, and I honestly can say that it's not because youtube was demonetizing player content; the game did nothing special that would really make it appealing to a broader audience, so there was no reason for more people to go out of their way to pick up the game, or even look up content for that game. They could just watch a lets play, or catch a story playthrough stream on twitch and have the same effect without having to cough up 60$ to play it. Now look at games like Path of exile, Grim dawn, warframe, binding of issac, the souls series, and darkest dungeon, these are just a very small handfull of games that can, and probably do get demonetized by youtube, but they thrive just fine. I regularly get suggested videos for all of these games (again, youtube doing its job), and people do regularly make videos for them inspite of the fact that the videos would very likely just get demonetized. They are niche titles that do what they set out to do very well, and as a result of that they have gotten a reasonable following. Its not fortnight/mincraft huge, but its enough to the point where they can justify continuing to support them, and players who actively play those games gladly continue to give these games money as a result of that. tl;dr Good games will get the attention they deserve regardless of what youtube does. FRreporter algorithm for the most part is doing its job, if someone isn't finding certain games its because they aren't actively looking for it, hence they are probably not very interested in the game to begin with; its really not their job to make players aware of the games that are out there. You really can't underestimate the power that comes with people just talking about games in general, youtube isn't the only way people find games, I know it's not my main source of information.

When they realise that they can get three times the amount of views for the same amount of money, I think advertisers are going to start tapping on FRreporter's shoulder and asking them to relax and take a chill pill.
