Stadia will be the real next gen. Mark my words

"More to the point, I was missing shots, and it was initially difficult to time melee hits against enemies. It's not that the input lag makes Doom unplayable, but it makes it harder, and it makes you worse at the game. It's the kind of thing that would make you reboot your console and check your TV settings."

And that was in a controlled environment.

People who are excited for this just haven't tried streaming. And it's not like playing on a laggy TV or something because with a TV the lag is fairly constant. If your playing a rhythm game on a laggy TV your brain can easily compensate and just press the button early. With streaming the lag is constantly changing so just pressing the button early isn't going to be enough, your brain can't adapt to that scenario.

You got people buying ultra low latency monitors and buying gaming mice and fancy controllers to improve their gaming experience and streaming goes hard in the opposite direction.

Streaming has been done in the past and it has never really caught on, I don't think this will be the time. It may seem big because they are buying so much advertising, but On-Live when it was new was pretty much the same and we know how that turned out.

Imagine being a Stadia fanboy. Must be really poor not to be able to afford hardware for gaming. Enjoy the input lag and streamed video

No thanks, hopefully the whole streaming thing crashes and burns.

It won't. You should come to terms with that.

If it doesn't work out now, it will later. As long as internet capabilities keep improving, streaming will be a thing.

You put way too much faith in the improvement of the internet. Also streaming services like Netflix are in financial trouble and Disney's streaming service hasn't even released yet and they have already cancelled over dozen shows and its not because there is a problem with the internet, its because people are losing interest.

I predict that game streaming will go the same route because so much more can go wrong with streaming a game than with simply streaming a tv show.

Until they realise it's not turning a profit so they scrap it and you lose all your games...

"Also streaming services like Netflix are in financial trouble "

Because the other big players(hbo,Hulu,Disney,Amazon ,apple) have seen that Netflix is sitting on a goldmine and want a piece of the action.

"its because people are losing interest."

Do you have an article or something that suggests this cause I'm finding nothing?
