True, but I suppose it depends on your definition of "quickly." I don't think the industry will flip in the next month, but I think it's coming faster than folks realize, especially with Netflix throwing in its hat. Cloud gaming is already viable for many folks, and the end of this console generation is going to be very interesting.
The Stadia launch was a total shit show, I agree absolutely. It's a shame too, because I play a few Stadia games with my phone and it's surprisingly smooth. Nvidia is onto something good with GeForce Now though, and it's what I mostly use at the moment. Steam, Epic, and Ubisoft have all thrown in support too, which is promising.
That said, I'm also in a major U.S. city, so that may be why latency hasn't been as big a problem for me. The only games I'd be unsure about playing are ultra high reflex games, especially with multiplayer. With single player games, or non-reflex based multiplayer, I really don't notice the difference, unless I am in a place with a spotty connection.
I'm always watching.
