Cloud computing is fine but, in my opinion, clouding gaming will eventually turn out to be another kind of DRM bullshit. When you have the physical media in your hands, and no online activation required, then you can play the game whenever, whereever and however you like. (You can circumvent and check for physical media with a no-CD/DVD patch.) However, when these clouding gaming sites go down - or it stays up but the particular game is "discontinued" - then you can't play the game anymore although you still "have" it.

More and more of your rights are being taken away - just like in the rest of your life - so I recommend that you don't fall for it.
