I'm 46 and thanks to streaming I'm watching TV and movies less than ever. I used to collect a lot of movies, used to spend over 2,000 dollars a year on blu-rays. Then Netflix and other digital services came around while movie quality kept going down (not sure if those are related) So I started watching stuff on Netflix I might have normally taken a chance on to purchase. The crappier image and sound quality made me enjoy it less, getting less interested in watching movies as a result.

Then TV started eroding. Quality shows disappear behind an extra paywall or exclusive streaming service. I 'compensated' by buying them on blu-ray yet now that ship is going down as well. Still waiting for The Expanse S4 to arrive on blu-ray, if ever. Disney took their content from Netflix and frankly while Netflix has a few decent series, most are pretty substandard. Netflix keeps bombarding me with things that match my viewing habits yet I find I'm starting to scrape the bottom of the barrel while I watch for less than an hour a day.

So I spend more time gaming instead of watching movies or TV. Can't wait for streaming to ruin that as well...

Well, damn. Come here, buddy.

*hugs Svennoj*

Haha thanks.

Not all streaming is bad, FS 2020 makes very good use of streaming data. I do wonder whether game pass had a positive or negative effect on FS2020. The game had a rather rocky launch with still many problems, not the least switching from game pass to the Steam edition. I bought the game up front and I'm sticking with it. However how many people tried it on game pass, ran into some problems and simply moved on.

Did MS pressure Asobo to release early to have something out and get them started on the XBox version, or did they run out of money. It's clearly still in the beta test phase, very playable already (depending on how you play and which plane you use), yet with countless issues, many which should never have made it to release.

I hope the too early release doesn't hurt it in the long run. The sim fans will stick with it regardless, yet without money from more casual players, what's going to keep providing the cash to finish the game? I guess all the overpriced DLC :/

Eh whatever, yesterday I found the perfect spot for the black gate of Mordor, next to Amguid, Algeria
