Dear cloudies: Can someone please explain why I'm supposed to be so excited about streaming games? I'd much rather not have to depend on the whims of my Internet connection to tell me whether I'm able to boot up a game, or whether it's going to suddenly crash at a bad time. Walking over and popping in a disc IS NOT THAT BIG A DEAL. Neither is having a shelf full of discs, I mean how many hundreds do you think I have.
If you play all your games on one device (console or computer) and you don't mind paying full price for virtually every game you buy, cloud gaming may be not be for you. The only way to play newer type games on any device like a tablet or even a smartphone is the cloud. Check out L.A. Noire or Homefront on OnLive and you'll understand.
