Yes, and I’m one of those people. But that hasn’t blinded me to the fact that our numbers are shrinking, and drastically so in recent years. There is a vast swath of consumers out there who are intent on the simple act of consuming, without any thought given to wanting to replay the game again later. The “use and dispose” mentality is really coming into its own.
Thus, I predict Stadia will be a resounding success.
Just not with me personally. The only way I’ll even try it out is because I’m curious. If one day a free Stadia game shows up on my YouTube page, yep I’ll hit the Play button and give it a shot. But that’s all. No way I’m contributing any of my own money into this service.
But I’ve given up on trying to convince the hordes of people out there that will eat this stuff up. They seem to be interested only in the latest and coolest tech, and fuck anything that came before.
I sound bitter, don’t I? I’m really not, although I do confess to once telling a bunch of kids to get off my lawn. :)
