Explanation

The opposite-direction trigger while and the clue might require that the blank mean something like inevitable. None of desultory, endemic, salient, or seminal means inevitable, so eliminate choices (A), (B), (C), and (E). Ineluctable means inevitable, so select choice (D).

Hence option D is correct!

Hi, I'm not quite clear with your explanation, could you please elaborate more?

Actually, the meaning of the sentence is: even though the immense developments in the video game industry (textures, high rate frame and so forth) this advancements are still reversible or at least we will reach a point of a stall point.

So D catches this meaning. The others are out of scope.

Ask for further assistance if you do need.

Regards

PS: not a good question with some flaws
