Stream Steam

GeForce Now is a streaming service that allows you to access NVIDIA’s servers to stream games you already own. Unlike other services where you buy games to play them, GeForce Now allows players to play almost anything that’s in their gaming library, or games you already own.

A necessary accessory

Most of the games available on NVIDIA GeForce Now require a gamepad to play. One of our favorite budget-friendly gamepads is the Steel Series Stratus Duo. You can get it for just Android or PC + Android. The combined option is a little more expensive but handy if you regularly use both systems.
