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.
