I much prefer to own games physically, but the idea of gaming without a console is quite fascinating.
I wonder if and how they're gonna pull it off on such a grand scale, though. Do they have the power to consistently stream thousands of demanding titles to millions of players at the same time? Could be a laggy mess.

If anyone could pull this off is Google as they have a multitude of servers everywhere, TBH. But still, this is going to be too much like "let's wait and see how it goes".

Personally I'm okay with not "owning" all games I play as long as I can own the ones I definitely want to keep. I don't see it any difference to having Netflix but still buying DVDs/Blu-rays for those movies/series I really want. But personally I would use Stadia only for those "unimportant" games. It I can't at least download a game in case the service goes down so I can keep playing, I don't think it is a good idea to buy it through a system with that risk.

It is so interesting watching this change in the gaming industry. With Google, MS, Amazon providing the infrastructure and many others playing with different types of subscription services the change is happening quite rapidly.

MS seems to be further along on solving the latency issue than Google

Add to that the Sony and Microsoft agreement to explore cloud based gaming solutions and there are all kinds of new possibilities

Somehow I doubt that Square is going to touch AOD. The PC version barely works as it is!

Why? They know how much fans love AoD (well most fans). They’ve included AoD Lara into a few games now. Rise, LC: Go, Shadow. An even on the 20th Statue poll AoD Lara won. So I don’t think they’ll discredit it.

Whether Square will release the classic games is another topic altogether.

The game wasn't critically successful enough to warrant a rerelease on Stadia.

Hang on it says that the Stadia version of TR 2013 is the definitive edition. I wonder if that means that it could be possible to create a PC port out of it.

funny thing I've noticed is that, because there are 3 TR games on stadia, every commentator on YT is finally mentioning TR again... in a negative way , saying stuff like "wtf they're old games" and "oh seriously that's the launch lineup, google?", when at least 80% of those same commentators were like "OMG doom , The witcher 3, wolfenstein and resident evil 3-4-5-6 and revelations 1-2 on the Switch!!! Must buy!" for nintendo.
what the heck

Yeah everyone was saying how the TR games are so old. Like, guys, it's the definitive edition version of Shadow it literally came out two weeks ago. That's not old. Guess that proves how well the general public knows about the Shadow Definitive Edition.
