Video games have become more complex in both graphics and mechanics in such a way that they require higher-quality computer specs to run properly. This means that you won’t be capable of playing games in 2021 on a system purchased in the early 2000s unless you upgrade its components. That’s where cloud gaming comes in, a technology that allows you to play your favorite games on any device, so long as you have a reliable internet connection.

The cloud gaming server manages the processing of a video game in place of your device’s hardware by sending you compressed video frames in response to input. The cloud-based servers receive your input when you press a key. It then sends a new frame to you in response. It’s an easy concept however, it requires a significant amount of bandwidth to send those videos in real-time. This has been a major obstacle to cloud gaming, however recent advancements in cell networks and edge computing have allowed cloud gaming to flourish.

This means that services such as Stadia and NVIDIA’s GeForce Now can stream games with near-real quality to devices with different levels of power. They also can avoid the lengthy downloads and setup procedures of installing a brand new game on your device, which is important for people who have variable network conditions. However, there remain many hurdles to be removed before cloud gaming can truly take off for cloud gaming, including issues with bandwidth and latency.
