I don't see this as a gamergate thing. Gamergate was about SJWs trying to make the games industry PC, not about games companies exploring different monetisation options. The first problem is a problem no matter what you do, the second one is only a problem if you buy games that take your money in ways you don't like.

No, gamergate is about shit journalism on games.

Well, yes, and the shit journalists were SJWs trying to make gaming PC.

No, that's how it started. Everything is connected to everything else, and so it quickly spread like fire and enveloped things like why modern game industry is such unsufferable shit. You're right in that that is/was to core of GG, it's where everything started and is still considered the cornerstone; as it's said, "ethics in game journalism." But now GG loosely encompasses most things wrong with the industry as a whole.

I don't see how any of what OP mentioned is an ethical problem though. There's no such thing as a fair price or a fair monetisation system. You just have to judge those things for yourself as a consumer and decide if you want in or out.

As for gamergate now being about something else... mission creep isn't to be admired.

The political correctness is real, you can't even call a some shitty player a nigger fag anymore without getting banned.
