Playing Stadia

For some reason being able to pick up my controller and play on my phone, iPad, or on my TV whatever the situation really fits into my life.

I received a free Stadia package from Google for being a YouTube Premium (or YouTube TV) subscriber. To quickly recap my previous life as a gamer:

  • PlayStation 4 sitting at the living room TV (haven’t touched it in years)
  • Nintendo Switch that roams, with docking station at living room TV (played sparingly)
  • Various iOS devices (don’t play any mobile games)

I never thought to try Stadia until I saw it supported the latest Madden. That, and NHL, was the driving force of my game-playing days, so I decided to give it a shot. A couple tries later and my brother-in-law and I are hooked.

I haven’t kept up to date with cloud gaming, but being able to go from one TV to another or play on my iPad or computer monitor amazes me. I just pick up my controller and play wherever, whenever I can. It fits into my life perfectly as well.

There’s no longer friction in my video game playing. You know, except for that whole working and having a family thing.
