    Every layer of complexity adds a layer of delay.  Chip speeds can help offset this, but only to a certain point.
    The more object oriented, zero compile, library using, remote loading, etc that an app is, the worse it is for performance.  The more parallel, high bandwidth, converted, etc an IO device/port is, the worse it is for input delay.  The more layers of workarounds (such as most patches are) that are in place, the exponentially worse everything gets.  Input validation is insane these days, to account for security issues, and often didn't exist at all except in a text entry field or similar before.
     
    Roughly when Moore's law took off with Ghz and quad core, each of those milestones yielded an extra layer of "let's make this the easy way, hardware performance is way more than we need" vs "let's make this performant with less overhead and less memory usage".  Then everybody did it and the whole system grinds to a halt fairly quickly with just a "few" things running, even on multi-core high clock speed systems with reasonable amounts of RAM.  Compilers today do a LOT of work to try and optimize what they compile…but it is still nowhere near as optimized and efficient as what most developers wrote in either assembly or C back when memory and clock speeds were scarce.

    Reaction videos are not fair use, they're a way to "transform" some other video and do destroy any value in watching the reacted media if the people watching the react video are using it to replace watching the video in question. Hence reaction videos of "new" content always does a lot of harm, since it can genuinely put off people from watching/playing/reading that content if the react'er is just tearing it down.
     
    Like on it's face, yes, game streaming is copyright infringement, but that's only if you, the streamer/recorder is doing the minimum of transformative efforts, like if all you're doing is recording the cutscenes, that's not fair use. If you record the entire story beginning to end, also not fair use. But the transformative nature of playing the game, especially games with minimal story to them (eg Mario and Zelda games are literately designed to have very little story) make the transformative element bigger, as no two people can play the game the same.
     
    This is why it's really in game developers interests to make games have elements that streaming the game benefits from. For example, ad-hoc co-op (Genshin Impact, which has the user's ID number on the screen while you play) could allow the people in the stream to join in a game that is otherwise single-player. Among Us also has the game code on the screen, to join. Jackbox games, use the web browser (on a mobile phone) for people to join in the game being hosted by the streamer, and anyone who doesn't join the game as a player, joins the audience.
     
    So it's possible to make games streamable, and the developers can facilitate any extra revenue paths from this by making the game "free to play" in multiplayer mode, as long as someone (paid for) hosting the game. People will want to buy the game so they can host their own parties. If server infrastructure needs to exist (eg Among Us, JackBox) to facilitate this, then perhaps just have subscription costs for cloud-hosting the game on a dedicated server instead of from the host's location.
     
    Stadia shows how this can actually work, if they're willing to go that far, where a streamer could stream a chroma-key'd video to youtube that is overlayed over the Stadia footage, and the people watching it, could also provide input to games that support it, using their own controllers, or menus that show up in the video stream.

    I mean in a sense they are paying the game developers in a way that is far more effective than just money.
     
    If it weren't for streaming, games like Among Us, Fortnite, PUBG, and pretty much any other game that has been a major phenomenon over the past few years would be unheard of. Game streaming is extremely lucrative for devs as its basically free advertising

    I would compare it more to a reaction video. If you pay for a movie and react to it on youtube, my understanding is that it can fall under fair use (not a lawyer obviously). With streamers, through playing the game, potentially editing it and adding their reaction to it, I would argue that it does not fall under copyright and they shouldn't have to pay extra.
