GeForce NOW | Review & Comparison

Last review was about Google Stadia, now we are going to talk about GeForce NOW.

First of all, I have used GeForce NOW for 1 year (2018-2019) when I didn’t had a Gaming PC. I have been using it from the beta phase, and I know how was the application in Beta.

How is the application now, the good parts and the bad parts? Let’s see!

Why GeForce NOW is good?

  1. It’s free! You can play for 1 hour every game you want to play, then you need to enter the session again. But, you need to wait 5-10 minutes to enter. (if you don’t have a membership)
  2. More games supported than Stadia. Click here to see a list of the supported games. Popular games include: Fortnite, LoL, Cyberpunk 2077
  3. RTX ON if you have a membership. In my opinion, this is the best deal ever: €5,49/month to play what game do you want with RTX ON.
  4. A good price for what it offers. The list of supported games is quite large and you can also use RTX.
  5. The games are available on their original platforms. You don’t need to buy the games from GeForce NOW (unlike Google Stadia).
  6. It can also be used on Android and iOS (through Safari) same thing as Google Stadia.

Why GeForce NOW is bad?

  1. Banned by Rockstar Games. Games made by Rockstar Games like GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2 are no longer allowed on GeForce NOW. They were allowed in the beta phase.
  2. Other companies that pulled their games from GeForce NOW: Activision Blizzard and Bethesda Softworks.
  3. Input lag. Of course, you can’t compare cloud gaming with gaming on your PC.
