The Horrors And Highlights Of Gaming’s Own-Nothing Future
The all-streaming future is a nightmare I hope never happens. I want to own my media, not rent it. What happens when the streaming service decides to drop a game, like Netflix does to shows now? If the game isn't available anywhere else, players can't play anymore and they'll have no say in it. Indie developers making small games for niche communities won't be able to survive. Netflix is already moving in this direction; it'll be just like TV, blockbuster or bust. You're Game of Thrones/Call of Duty level or you don't exist.
