I'm thinking if the industry keeps marching toward "online only" and "cloud based" video gaming we may yet see 1983 happen again.

Ah well if we were talking about bits then I usually get about 16-19mbits/s (according to speed test) and upload speed is just terrible at 0.49mbits/s and for some reason it's always around 0.5 whenever I try speedtest. :(

I do agree though that games will likely transition to cloud based services, I will accept that but personally I prefer having my own hard-copy when/if possible. I also get 150GB a month and it is a shared household so things could get interesting towards the end of the month :/
I have gamed on their system and it works fine, except for lag on distant servers, but that has always been an issue for most. FYI - I use Telstra DSL.
