GeForce Now is one of the most unique game streaming services on the market. Rather than players getting a catalog of titles for their monthly fee, subscribers instead access their own library of games from third-party storefronts such as Steam and the Epic Games Store. Games can be played remotely on Android devices, MacBooks, or even underpowered laptops. This is certainly a brilliant approach to the game streaming concept, but there’s one big catch — just because you own a game doesn’t mean it’s compatible with GeForce Now.
That’s right, not every title in your massive Steam library will run on GeForce Now. The service is still undergoing some big changes, and publishers are adding and removing titles on a regular basis. Some of the compatible games are a bit esoteric, but there’s still a wide variety of great titles that take advantage of Nvidia’s popular new service. Here are the 12 best games you can currently stream with

Path of Exile
Arguably a better Diablo game than Diablo 3, Path of Exile takes the best features from hit ARPGs and adds its own modern flair.

The new campaign is so extensive that the developers are calling it Path of Exile 2. It’s expected to release sometime this year, and when it does it’ll be compatible with
This bizarre co-op shooter has been around for seven years and shows no signs of slowing down. Players choose between one of the 30-plus Warframes — sort of like Classes in an MMORPG — and take part in fast-paced, sci-fi shootouts. If guns aren’t your thing, Warframe also features a wide variety of melee weapons that allow you to get up close and personal with your intergalactic foes.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
Even those with solid gaming PCs might think twice about streaming this one, as running it with maxed-out settings is sure to be a burden on their system.

Gearing up to enter its fifth Season, Apex Legends will be introducing a new Legend and a new Quest system on May 12. The squad-based shooter relies heavily on teamwork, and you’ll need to carefully coordinate your attacks with your fellow combatants if you hope to make it out of Kings Canyon alive. Each character comes with a unique set of abilities, making it of paramount importance to play as a team.

Currently a timed exclusive on the Epic Games Store, Control was one of the most ambitious games released in 2019. Players take on the role of Jesse Faden and use her supernatural abilities — including levitation and telekinesis — to move throughout their environment and take down their foes. Control is structured like a Metroidvania, meaning you’ll learn new abilities the more you play, which in turn give you access to previously locked areas. It’s a beautifully designed game, and it’s easy to see why critics throughout the industry are giving it such high marks.
