Google has a huge new gaming platform named Stadia, which will stream blockbuster games to nearly any device. Rather than relying on a traditional game console, Stadia runs in the cloud — games are streamed to your device, like Netflix does with movies and TV. Because games are interactive, streaming video games is much more technologically challenging than streaming movies. Video game streaming requires much higher internet standards, and Google's Stadia is no exception in this regard. When ...
