Good, Facebook and google are the devil. Playing through their servers means being forever bugged and watched. Bye, bye Stadia, you will not be missed.

"That game was unplayable everywhere not just Ps4."

That was literally the last sentence in your previous comment.

I'm just relaying the experience I had. I encountered some bugs, but only one serious (the weapon reloading I mentioned in my other comment), and that was patched very early on.

I experienced nothing like some of the stuff I saw online at the time (missing textures, huge frame rate drops, "T-shape" posing, game save corruption, etc) and nothing that even came close to stopping me from seriously enjoying the game.

And I just used Cyberpunk as an example because it was the most obvious one. I could have pointed to Metro Exodus, Little Nightmares, Superhot, Fenyx Rising, FIFA, GRID and other games I've played and finished on Stadia.

I was just making a point that, for me, Stadia is very much a reality, not a "fantasy". So are other cloud gaming services.

If you don't know what you are talking about, have no real reading or writing ability, don't go trying to project that onto other people. Yes, it's people like that who make the internet a hateful place! About as good as the random spell checker on my google onscreen keyboard. Which it turns out, chucked a doozy. Another google product that doesn't know how to type or spell correctly.

beep bop boop, 04 May 2021with no bugs?I had a bug very early on where sometimes (not always) you couldn't reload your weapon during combat, but that was fixed in the first patch they released.

Other than that, the only oher major bug I encountered was your character was riding in the passenger seat of a car with an NPC driving an dthey would repeatedly ram the car into a wall. That was actually hilarious to me.

The rest was pretty much smooth sailing until I completed the game.

But you had to have a hi end PC or a hi end server to run it and it still had bugs.
Don't be a google apologist.

Yes truly a masterpiece that if we didn't have stadia we wouldn't be able to play, and CDPR would have to do their job and make a good game.
That game was unplayable everywhere not just Ps4.

'....the fantasy of Google Stadia...'

Seriously!? At least TRY to act in a neutral way and not show any bias...

For me Stadia is very much a reality. I was happily playing CP2077 on it when PS4s around the world were gasping for air trying to play it.

Simian, 04 May 2021It's decent- you can purchase a game and not subscribe... moreMonopolies are bad. Moreso with a company that loves killing services. Like Google.

Google collects your data to the highest bidder and uses it to sell you other stuff. Why in the world would I buy their game console?

Cloud gaming is the future and it won't be long until Microsoft at least gets into it (while it was in talks for a while, they were planning on releasing said service on the Switch). As some said here, it was due to lack of marketing because it wasn't like you couldn't use the SERVICE for free; you can.

If Stadia got into the Switch, that would've been explosive. Also, if they hadn't limited it to only the Pixels even it started, that wouldn't have been a problem.

I don't understand how can people still trust google products after all of this.
