Google Stadia: A Technical, Conceptual Disaster

Honestly, it sure seems as though Google was planning on the media glossing over the "shockingly bad" performance and stick to the talking points.

And in places like the US with fixed ISP data caps, how would those hold up to 4-20 GB per hour data usage? But on top of all that, there was one central question. Would it even work? I have spent the last week discovering that at least for me and my own Google Stadia set-up, the answer to that question is a resounding no. I am genuinely amazed with how shockingly bad Stadia has performed at my home over the course of many sessions.
