    This will not have a big effect on gaming, unless Google (who also owns Youtube) decides to remove results from Google searches about hacking people will still find ways to do it. Youtube started in 2005 and there was hacking tutorials on the internet long before then. I can't remember the last time I've used a Youtube video to help me hack something. As long as there's sites like these nothing will change as it's not like 100% of the gaming population even cares about hacks, maybe 15%.

    Like I already lost my network partnership b/c of the new BS requirements, now they want to eliminate mod play? Its like YouTube is becoming Thanos towards content creators

    Can't count how many times someone comes on here and needs help because they watched an outdated Youtube video on how to do something with their console that screwed it up.

    They take away hacking and cheating channels, so someone patches their switch app to work on banned switch units on -snip-

    Piracy related content I can understand but cheats? How is digging in RAM Circumvention of Technologies?

    Another reason to either go to safe share or wait for something new from the makers of vid.me!

    Their platform, their rules.
    Wasn't there some noise about being able to access otherwise paid content in the new Assassin's Creed game? Probably has something to do with that.

    I wouldn't be surprised if all the fake stuff with viruses and surveys won't even be taken down.

    They don't even care about those it seems.

    Sadly, no, I'm sure those will be unaffected.

    Screw DRM and DMCA

    This sucks, there's many videos of modding consoles and games that interested me :(
    Too bad YouTube is the biggest video sharing site, no good alternatives for this

    Modding != cheating (crapping actually) the games. That's a misconception.

    I don't like cheaters/cheating on the games I play (that's why I'm not interested on online play, that's flooded with cheaters).

    But do like modding the games to provide content that would not be possible on any other way.

    I never cheered it. I don't even like Alex Jones, and believe he's fucking bat shit insane. But I don't believe he should have been booted off social media. But hey, they're private companies, so they can do whatever they want. And yeah, I do agree. I find it laughable that people believe that they'll stop at Alex Jones.
