I tried onlive. It sucked for me because i'm fairly remote. Until they have like 50 server farms spread throughout the country its a pass.

onlive = very bad idea.  Imagine playing multiplayer with ppl from overseas..   the upstreaming of I/O controller and / downstreams of video will cause the game to LAG as hell.  Plus, gaming is what PC is for !  and I highly doubt ppl will buy googleTV just to play PC game ?   why re-invent the wheel ?  ON LIVE, don't waste our time.

Well, if I can not keep my games, then I am not much interested at all. OnLive is like Steam. Both require you to log onto the client to play the game. You will need internet access for all of your paid content. I say, to hell with that, I game the old fashioned way. GamersGate, GOG, and Direct2Drive as well as Amazon Games.

I thought the old fasioned way was buying discs... ;)

Actually, the real old fashioned way is to play on floppy disks. Which there is no option to buy games in floppy disk format anymore. That, and many retail stores no longer offer PC games, or have seriously shrunk down the PC Gaming Aisle. Good old times... Miss them. The new way to game is definitely on the cloud. Onlive is doing it and so is Google TV in partnership with them. Ugh, and then there is Ubisoft. The future is, your gaming library will not be in your PC, but in some corporate server where you pay to play monthly. I guess I like to play on "modern times" which will soon be yesterday's way of gaming.

I think avenger is only talking about the old fashioned way... not the "real" old fashioned way =) since it was refering to your original statement.

and it seems you always like to have the last word
