Gamers today are so entitled. I guess you hate Cloud saves to right?
If you don't like Streaming, than don't Stream the games, its an option. Buy the games digitally or Physically. Streaming is not going away, get use to it and stop pretending everything shuts down. Its misleading.
Its as dumb as saying to someone that you hate renting games. Don't rent them.
How am I pretending when we have seen cloud streaming services going down in the past? I don't dislike cloud gaming as an option and you would know that if you read the entire original post.
Why do you keep moving goal posts? What does cloud saves have to do with anything? What does renting have to do with anything?
Because the issue is misinforming people. Sure some services shut down and some don't. Just because some do doesn't mean they all will. People continue to use the "They will shut it down" excuse. Heck people still believe that with digital stores. Steam has been around since 2003, World of Warcraft servers have been around since 2004, what makes you think a popular service will just shut down? They might very well outlive you. Just because a digital store shuts down doesn't mean Steam will.
Moving goal posts? what are you on? I am giving you examples on the topic at hand. You want to own your games, cool, and you may continue to do so.
Streaming is no different to the old rental days, except instead of walking into video stores to loan games on specific hardware, you can do it via online, and pay much better prices without dedicated hardware. How dare they.
You use Cloud saves right? Guess what, if those cloud servers shut down, so do your saves. Yet majority are grateful for it because its more likely that you would lose your local saves than the Cloud losing your data. Much like game preservation.
