No, but this bit bothers me:  "install supported games on GeForce NOW".

To quote panzerde from another thread, "I run Win 10 for my personal stuff, and have now for several years. Unfortunately if you want to play games and have access to the widest collection of software, there just isn't an alternative."

It seems to me that this 'cloud-based streaming VM' approach has been tried before. You 'install' (probably just activate from a curated preloaded list) your game on a virtual PC that then streams to your device. Maybe Nvidia has found ways to compensate for bandwidth and latency issues that sunk earlier attempts.
