This may be subjective and sound like a conspiracy theory, but please do not support the actual gaming industry in its grand scheme of dispossession.
I know it is enticing to play hundreds of games for only a few bucks/month ; you save a lot of money and can even play games that you would not have bought otherwise.
I guess it is made for those who just play games before they sell them back or any kind of gamers who don’t give a damn about keeping games in general.
But, if more and more people subscribe to those services, it will inevitably lead to some standard in gaming.
We have already lost a part of our property because of digital retailers.
Even if it is unclear what will happen to our games if said retailers discontinued their services, those are still our games.
Now, if we all play along with this « pass » bullshit (that already goes with Netflix and stuff) sooner or later we’ll have no goods at all.
Same goes with Stadia, you wont even need a PC or a Console anymore. Only screens and expenses.
You have financial difficulties ? Want to stop your subscription(s)? That’s it, look at all those things you no longer have.
Even better, you’ll have nothing left to sell if you need that extra money.
This will be our future. Games, books, films & series, autonomous cars, phones, et cetera… everything will be a monthly subscription and we’ll be the perfect consumer slaves.
TL;DR : Monthly subscriptions are nice but they will lead to total dispossession. We should not trade all our goods for services.
