Gforcenow

I am starting to get into the gaming thing I have been playing Stadia which is ok but is limited on games I have signed up for Microsoft Game pass and have been playing some of those games on PC. I see that Gforcenow is a cloud based gaming platform like stadia I am wondering if anyone has tried it yet and could recommend it.

    <p>Geforce Now helped breathe life in some games on my older laptop. I was happy with it for the NetherRealm Fighting Games. Injustice 2 and MK X. Fortnite had really bad lag but I wonder if that was Epic's network or a wifi issue. My only complaint is not all games are available. I purchased a racing game, it was too advanced for the old laptop so I thought Geforce Now would save the day, no it was not available for the service even though it was in my steam account. </p><p>We're still in the early times of game streaming. I want to see how it does in the next six months especially when some decent competition from Xcloud happens.</p>

    <p>It is ok in a pinch or for that must play game you cannot run locally but I have had better experience with XCloud. </p>

    <p>I am using it as I got three months of free subscription. It works well, provided that you have a good internet connection. It's much better than stadia because it allows to play many games that you already own on steam, ubisoft, epic store etc. For those games, cross-play is enabled as well, which is great. Not all games are supported so it's a matter of luck if the games you like work or not. I mostly play 5 games and 3 of them are supported, so I am pretty happy with it</p>

    <p>I like GeForce NOW, but won't be paying for it since none of the games I play are on it now. They all got pulled.</p>
