Forums - Gaming Discussion - Where the Hell is Google's First party Stadia Games?

I shall pray for the poor souls who have invested in the platform knowingly of it's eventual failure.

They litteraly where giving it free recently with tons of "goodies" and yet people don't bite.
That's the sign of a fatality. Vain struggle here.

Unfortunately for you, Google already have 4 studios that began working for Stadia exclusives and more studios are poised to be announced.

I'm crossing my fingers that all of them are just shitty GaaS multiplayer only games like Amazon is currently doing. But another question is will Stadia still be alive by the time these game will be ready?

Google can definitely eat a few years of big losses on Stadia. However, if they don't have any worthwhile exclusives within a year of the XBX and PS5 launches, they're done. Microsoft and Sony will have their own robust streaming services out there, with well-known franchises as exclusives. 

I'm really excited about what streaming will mean for mobile devices in the future. Nintendo could potentially (not likely, but still) sell a "Switch Super-Lite" that has minimal hardware in it but streams games at a high res. Sell it for roughly $80 or something. Public Wi-Fi is basically everywhere now, and it only going to proliferate further in the future, with even faster speeds. I could see something like that being a big hit in East Asia, where internet speeds are high and data caps are non-existent. 



Stadia gonna have a real tough time when Xcloud launches on PC/console. Even at Xbox’s worst they still had Halo Gears Forza. Google has nothing time tested and ultimately their lack of exclusives will be their death.



 

 

Who needs to make games when they can buy games



Nothing to see here, move along

I don't know if that's true, simply because I can't see them floundering harder than they are doing now, they hit rock bottom already. Once XCloud launches their userbase of 100 people worldwide will become 80 people, not that much changes.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

You can become stagnant, which is also acceptable In stadia case lol. I think the have 1 million users now....that’s room to flounder harder if you ask me. 



 

 

Google just moneyhatted Serious Sam 4 to keep it off consoles, so they could have it exclusive for a year. Yeah, you heard that right. They are starting to pull the same exclusivity shit that EGS has been pulling on Steam. Except they are targeting consoles. This is going to be a really shitty gen if every other 3rd party PC game is locked to the EGS for a year, and every other 3rd party console game is locked to Stadia for a year.

It's Serious Sam. Not only it has never been a big seller, its sales are predominantly on PC. This move is bad, but it's probably not doing anything to anyone. Stadia won't sell more because this is not a big seller, most Serious Sam players are not going to be affected, and Croteam and Devolver Digital won't lose enough sales to make the money from the deal detrimental.

But they don't have it exclusive for a year, thanks to the PC version.

The only game (timed?) exclusive to streaming platforms is "Gylt" as far as I know.

I played through that in my free trial of Stadia... a nice exploring game, but no system/service seller. It ran very well, but that can be expected for slow paced genres like these.

On the other hand I can't understand why Google thought that fast paced games like Mortal Kombat, Thumper or Serious Sam would be good fits for their service.
