** However, this proved unsustainable. With most of the big names leaving the site, many listing the experience of making those films as major reasons (it was fairly expensive for them to participate and they didn't get a piece of the sales, plus the general high stress involved in throwing such long productions together in a few days). The next year's special WebVideo/TheUncannyValley was just a collection of small shorts put together by different contributors, and afterwards they were abandoned altogether.

* In the very early days of online video game walkthroughs, a GameFAQs user known as Kao Megura (whose real name was Chris [=MacDonald=]) was an absolute legend. He became famous for his ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' FAQ, which was the game's first English walkthrough, and thus, the one most people clicked on when they looked it up- and besides that, it was very organized and well-written. He wrote many more guides in the same style, and gave lots of advice and assistance to other FAQ writers.... but since literally ''everyone'' used his ideas, there is no longer anything special about his guides. [=MacDonald=] died in 2004, so most gamers haven't even heard of him, even those who are very active in the [=GameFAQs=] community.
** GameFAQs in general, and other websites dedicated to written walkthroughs and cheatcodes, got hit hard with this with the rise of Youtube. Once it became popular to upload recorded gameplay online, gamers took to watching video walkthroughs instead of reading.

** Another blow to the written walkthrough format is the rise of wiki software, modeled on Wikipedia, which gave rise to every game (or game series) having its own dedicated wiki, with wikis of major titles offering far more information than even the most detailed written walkthroughs did.

* Once upon a time, an ambitious user of Garry's Mod made the first StylisticSuck movie from the program. Suddenly, ''everyone'' thought this was the only way to animate in Garry's Mod. However, after some genuinely good uses of the program, most people started to see "Heavy flails his arms around and dies" videos as old-hat, or at least from a bygone era.

** Lampshaded by an early author of Creepypasta:
--> ''"I feel so... above Sim Albert. At the time, it was intended to be a deconstruction of typical video game creepypastas - but now we have those called 'Feelspasta' these days. Instead of a ghost breaking the game engine freaking the player with stock freaky imagery (Photo-realistic eyes, hyper-realistic blood, random satanic symbols), the ghost adheres to the game's engine much like BEN Drowned and the game's logic much like Pokémon Black the pirated version. The twist was, like a few other creepypastas such as Jessica and Love, that the creepiness is actually a benign thing. These days people just categorize them into Feelspasta or whatever you call them - but in the day, it was kind of different to browse stories about knife-wielding psychopaths only to find one where a ghost is just looking out for the narrator."''

* An {{iTunes}} app was released of the Fairlight CMI Series II, (a $100,000 machine invented in 1979 in Australia which is considered both one of the first major digital workstations and the first commercially available digital sampler.) The app was designed by one of the Fairlight's inventors. Fairlights were used in TheEighties by many top artists with the cash to buy one[[labelnote:i.e.]]producer Trevor Horn (with ArtOfNoise, ABC and Music/{{Yes}}), Music/{{Devo}}, PaulMcCartney, {{Erasure}}, Music/{{U2}}, Music/{{Queen}}, Music/StevieWonder, Music/FleetwoodMac, Music/ElvisCostello, Thomas Dolby, Howard Jones, Hall And Oates, Music/TheCars, Music/DefLeppard, Music/MichaelJackson, Music/PetShopBoys, Music/PeterGabriel, Music/HerbieHancock, Music/KateBush...[[/labelnote]]. In today's world, where $1,000 can get you a decent workstation that can wipe the floor with the Fairlight, the app is getting mixed reviews, partly on being seen as "generic" and "more of a toy."

* Wiki/SCPFoundation: Due to how the writing style and the general atmosphere of the setting evolved, many of the oldest SCP entries, once acclaimed as some of the best, seem out-of-date now and would be considered subpar if they were written today. For example, [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-173 SCP-173]] (the very first SCP item) or [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-017 SCP-017]] are sometimes criticized because they're little more than a short description of a monster and the creepy things it can do, while today's SCP articles tend to be more like complete stories in themselves.
