    GeForce Now. The Game Streaming Platform that Works

    This is the platform that gives you the option to play games in the cloud. A new concept for video games.

    You may be familiar with streaming services but not video game oriented. You'll also know streaming services from Netflix, Amazon Prime, or YouTube.

    It means that content is streamed over the Internet. And this comes to revolutionize the gaming industry. Until recently, games could be purchased online and downloaded to your computer or device.

    But now you can access games over the Internet, and you can quickly transform your computers or any device you want into a Gamer computer.

    This works because, as the name says, you are not interacting with the game live. Still, professional computers in different centers do that processing for you and transmit the experience. The big difference is that you don't need hundreds of Gigabytes taking up space, and the games are updated automatically. There are several free games (between 50 and 60 approximately), but for the rest, you must pay for them as usual.

    Several limitations exist because you do not compare a fixed video with a video game, with thousands of interactions happening simultaneously. We are talking about very different things.

    Let's start with the plans. There are two plans. The free one and the one that costs USD 4.99 per month. There are some differences which we will tell you about below. The free plan has access to all the games the paid plan has. But at the time of playing, the free program has maximum sessions of one hour, and in case the servers are congested, they will prioritize the paid plans. The paid plans have 4-hour play limits; as I said before, they have priority in the servers. In addition, RTX (Ray Tracing) is enabled in these plans.

    We think it is better to compare it with other options like Google Stadia or Microsoft xCloud. The prices of the other platforms are higher, and they don't allow things like RTX (Ray Tracing, a new technology used in video games that acts on the physics of lighting and significantly improves graphics and the overall gaming experience).

    Something vital when talking about video games by streaming is the connection and how the games perform depending on the Internet quality of each user. I have read reviews that when the connection is good, there are no problems, but it is not the same when talking about games with many interactions happening simultaneously on not-so-good connections. I would tell you to test your connection, and in games you like. There are too many variables to be able to categorically determine whether the connection works this way or that way with average connections. But the service itself can render games at 1080p and 60 frames per second. The quality is good.

    One aspect that we can say is among the worst of this program is the user interface and how to navigate within the application. The application is focused on Steam, and if you have the games on Steam, the program quickly makes the connection. That's why if you had games purchased for other platforms, it may not work very well or take a while to enter because first, it will send you to Steam, it will give you an error, and then you can choose the other option. The same vice versa; if you have it in Steam, the game will send you to another platform, giving you an error. This part is where you have to enter the game and have several options; you may get an error.

    But this is the only negative point, and you must remember that it is a program that has just been released after being in Beta for a long time. This kind of thing will likely be polished over the years.


    It is the best option for cloud gaming. It is very efficient for computers that are not the latest generation or don't have a lot of space. In addition, it is much better than the competition in this sector.
