Cloud gaming is becoming more popular these days as the likes of Google, Microsoft, and Samsung have also started venturing into the same business. NVIDIA has been on it for years now and it’s been successful so far especially since it regularly releases software updates. Just recently, the company has finally allowed GeForce NOW and PC gaming accessible to more fans and gamers. It will still be cloud gaming but with your good old PC games.
PC is still the biggest gaming platform in the world today. What’s ironic though is that not many people have powerful or modern PCs to play the games. And as time passes by, cloud gaming becomes more popular every time a new system or service is introduced.
