Google Stadia is the Google Plus of game streaming:

Lots of exuberant early adopters shaping the platform.
Eventually Google will change it to appeal to a broader audience.
The exuberant adopters will leave, adoption won't happen as quickly as Google would like.
Eventually someone in Google will stop funding it and it will die on the vine.
Tech pundits will both extol the virtues of the platform and eulogize it, or they will say it was foolishness from the get-go

Wash, rinse, repeat.

I've never logged in our seen a shred of Stadia because I was an avid G+ user and frankly I've already seen this play out.

Also saying that any Google service is the "Google Plus of..." is a great way to get folks riled up.

@craigmaloney
especially if they are reminded of how #GPlus was forcefully integrated into other services such as #YouTube :)
(Don't quite see that happening to #Stadia though... wouldn't surprise me if that gets killed off before they even try such a thing ;))
