Knowledge and self control are power. Unfortunately too many people lack it, which causes them other problems as well. To add onto this, it also gives the provider complete control over your access to games, which I don't like. Service outages are inevitable no matter how robust a network is. I like being able to play my games offline because I'll be able to play them forever, whenever I want and wherever I want. I don't have a problem with these subscription based game streaming services as long as they don't force themselves to be the norm. They're definitely good for people who only play a game once and move on to another one. I like going back and playing my games over and over again though, so this doesn't fly with me. Additionally, I spend about the same amount of money on games a year as I would pay for one of these subscription services over the span of a year, so they're not worth it for me, and I would never use them even if they were the cheaper option. I hope we still have choices in the future and that streaming services don't acquire a deathgrip on the game market. Having options is awesome. It allows people with different needs to get what they want. What we don't want to happen is one option being forced on everyone.
