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.

PS: not a good question with some flaws

I don't think that this is true! A lot of video games on the PC can be easily downloaded and installed from pirate trackers so it's quite easy to play in different games instead of Console gaming.

Totally agree with u. I also don't think this is true. It's easy to find, easy to download, easy to install. Console gaming is good, yeah. However, one thing that I like is that PC has Steam and there are more multiplayer games as CS:GO. Such games can improve combat process that u can use. CS:GO is a great game, but I can't admit that it's quite difficult to raise the profile lvl, so I guess it's better to buy the cheapest csgo boost that can improve the rank with less personal time and not too much money for it. It's up to u.

Yeah I also agree that all developments in video games will stop soon and in the future big differences between old and new games will be very small. For example now I am playing in Valorant, new first person shooter game and to be honest it looks like CS GO but much better. The idea is that the difference is not so essential, I am sure that new sport games also will be the same just a little difference maybe in graphic or new GTA will look like old one.

Explanation:
I believe the word "might" gives the clue here.
As the sentence goes, it is said the innovation "might" increase the level of fun and this suggests that the result can be possible/not-possible, occur/not-occur. From here it could be easy to catch a word that could describe this uncertainty.
Hence the word "ineluctable".
