Can't speak for everyone, but one the reasons I didn't think about SEO was that I normally make indie games for myself and one of the joys of doing that is that I don't have to kowtow to anyone else. SEOs are good for discoverability, but it's effect on the rest of the internet -- bloated articles that ultimately say nothing and are just trying to game the algorithm -- put me off the idea altogether.

Nevertheless, I will admit you made some interesting points about how SEO can affect a user's search for the game. It's certainly something that gamedevs should at the very least be aware of.
