The amount of FUD regarding Stadia is really surprising in this forum. It's ok to be skeptical, I'm skeptical too, but a lot of posters are downright aggressively defensive. Each Stadia thread is bombarded with drive-by shitposts like "why would anyone use it", "it's completely pointless", "Google will shut it down quickly" and so on. There's also a constant amount of misinformation being thrown around like "You need to pay monthly to play" or "You need to buy 120$ hardware to start using it", none of which is correct. Stadia Basic is free and you current hardware most likely supports it. I though Google's marketing is very clear about it and I don't want to assume that posters here are complete idiots that don't understand this concept of game streaming. My best explanation is that streaming services will make fanboys' precious hardware less important. Because when you can't measure your penis length in teraflops, how else will you prove that you're superior on the internet?
