Well, this is my last resort. I honestly didnt think i would have to use the forum to find out what my network issue is but here we go.
at the end of november of 2017 i've been having 'rubberband' issues when i play online games. unstable connection for 10 seconds every 8-15 minutes of gameplay. at first i thought, it'll probably go away, maybe it's the game servers but it just kept going on any game i would play. including wireless games on my phone and my ps4 console. i mainly use wired connection when i play PC games but here are some clips and photos that i took of what i'm talking about here.

FWIW, that trace route output does not indicate any problem. The trace completes to the destination server. And with very low latency.
Those "timed out" hops are just routers that are deliberately configured not to respond to ICMP packet based ping / trace probes. Packets are being forwarded normally.
Oh okay thats actually good to know. I'm learning day by day of all this networking stuff so i'll definetly keep a note of that. However, it does not fix my random pattern request timed out every 8-15 minutes and an unstable connection for 10 seconds then brings me back to normal. In your thoughts, what do you think could be the cause of this? Do you think firewall could be the culprit? Because as i stated above, i've done so many things to see if it can be fixed and i'm just out of ideas at this point. Is this a throttle issue? If so, what should i do?
