Google has a bad habit of shooting themselves in the foot. Apparently that habit even extends to the Google Stadia social media team. This doomed system appears to be on the cusp of letting go altogether.
Google Stadia sucks. That’s not a nuanced statement, especially since I’ve never even tried Stadia. But, anyone can see this truth from miles away.
I might have given Stadia a chance if it wasn’t so overpriced. Worse than that is the complete lack of any sort of decent support from third-party developers. The game library is barren.
It’s so barren that even the social media team can’t help but draw attention to it.
In a Twitter post from the official Google Stadia account, someone tried to spell out “Stadia” using game titles for each letter. However, they hit a snag when they got to the ‘I’ in Stadia. The person composing the tweet realized there were no games starting with ‘I’ on the platform.
Instead of giving up on this corny acronym, they just substituted it with a shrugging emoji. It didn’t take long for people to notice.
Clearly, whoever is in charge of the Google Stadia Twitter account has stopped caring. It’s probably for the best since everyone else stopped caring about it months ago.
Google Stadia seemed doomed from the start, and things haven’t gotten much better. It lacks games, has a terrible monetization system, and generally isn’t all that convenient. It even pales in comparison to other similar systems like GeForce Now and Project xCloud.
If the state of their social media is anything to go by, Google is already well on its way to just checking out and letting the system die. It’s hard to blame them. So far, Google Stadia seems like it was just a horrible idea.
