They should have made it a subscription model and offer unlisted games.
maybe… i think the problem is people just assumed it would suck because of lag/latency/etc.

But after getting a free one and trying the trial, it really was excellent. I have a decent internet connection so maybe if you’re on DSL or something it’d suck, but I was even able to play fighting games and it played perfectly. No lag issues, it was great.

My only issue is that I already have a gaming PC and when I play PC games I want to use my keyboard and mouse anyway.

The business model was more of a problem than the technology. If they had done a "Netflix for games" model, that might have been appealing. But having to buy individual games at full price that can only be streamed and never played locally/offline? Fuck off outta here. :rofl:

Exactly. Make it a subscription and let the users play all games on the system.

And when Stadia inevitably gets fully scrapped (which Google does all the time), you can’t play anymore… ever.

Plus a lot of the fun of many PC games is the modding. If I want to play at 1080p with a controller on the couch, I’ll just use a console
