An interesting story about getting a full list of games on NVIDIA GeForce Now may have turned out to be a lot bigger than initially expected. A developer going by Ighor July has made a Medium post about what was initially such a project, but ended up finding a lot more than expected.
The post starts with fiddling with code and ending up with over 18000 games and other utility apps like Adobe Photoshop. But also unexpectedly, the list included the PS4 exclusive, God of War, with a Steam label. Also in the list was one Dolphin Emulator, which cast doubt on the legitimacy of the listing.
There are plenty of other unexpected items in the list, which SteamDB founder Pavel Djundik has kindly compiled. These include unannounced titles like the Resident Evil 4 Remake, GTA trilogy remaster, and even a Final Fantasy IX remake, to name a few.
Here's a big filtered list of all games on GFN that have no Steam appid (in their data).
Some other things of note: Bioshock 2022, Bioshock RTX Remaster, Batman: Arkham Knight RTX Remaster, Mirror's Edge RTX Remaster.

Here’s also a mention of Halo 5: Guardians in the list, which series developer 343 Industries has confirmed is not happening right now. According to Windows Central, there are both “foreseeable projects” and things that are “unlikely to resemble actual products launching anytime soon” in the mix.
And that’s probably the most important thing to keep in mind right now. While we may see some of the things in this list get an official unveiling, we should also expect that others will never see the light of day, especially not in the near future.
