I'm not saying that your definition of game as service is wrong. Over the last 15 years I watched most of your videos. I'm also not defending wikipedia, gearbox or pcgamer and I hate games as a service as much as you do.
I'm saying that your definition of "service" from developer tweet and pcgamer article is wrong.
The point is that when most people talking about service games they mean "live service game" or "live games"
and that has nothing to do with "is game a service or a good?"
So when most people read that tweet/article they see "the game has always online drm garbage, also don't expect any post launch content" and not "service is not a service"
