I wonder though, how many subscribed thinking they had access to 100% of the library without having first purchased the games.

Nvidia have been transparent on that you need to own them first, but still I bet a healthy portion of those users took the first month/trial before realising this.

Then again, registered users mean nothing to me.Lets see how many "subscribers" they have after the first month or the 90day trial is over. Personally I like the idea. They just made high end gaming available to everyone with budget strapped setups. In my eyes, as much as we despise Nvidia for their greed, this will get them loyalty from some users.

Imagine seeing how sweet something looks at high end and then getting the feeling that you want this with all games you own. Win win for Nvidia.

With all the free games Epic releases through their store if Nvidia and them are partnering that could be a big boost for Nvidia's subscriber count.

Add Xbox Game Pass titles to that and PC gamers would have a great combo.

I'd only consider it worth it if I had a better laptop. That way I could play single player games away from home. But I don't travel a lot so there's also that

But yeah Epics free games and Xbox game pass makes this appealing.

They probably realized that they couldn't sell Skyrim on this new platform because you need to own the game already to use the service

We all know the reason. I was just about to write a long post describing what is what, but luckily, someone beat me to it: https://www.forbes.com/sites/erikkai.../#4bd400eda3b8


Terrible decision. I would have gladly purchased games that I couldn't play on my machine and then use Geforce Now to play them. I don't have as much time for gaming these days, so investing in a new gaming PC would be a lot more expensive than going this route. If Bethesda and Activision don't want me to play their games through Geforce Now, I guess they don't want me as a customer.
