What is going on here? tracert "Request timed out" and lots of it!

This testing was prompted by the "Having issues with inconsistent high ping, and dropped packets." post. I've noticed issues while gaming as well. (I've blamed the servers so far....) I did a bout of tracert commands a week or 2 back and things were "normal". I've done about 20 today and these are just a couple examples. (Including Shaw.ca) Though all destinations say the same thing. Please note, the first 2 are modem+(my)router. The following 2 are just the modem going to the same places. (I've since added a 3rd.)

 

Networking is not a strong area for me so I could use some help understanding what's going on here. As mentioned, I saw none of this in previous tracert scans.
