This is a major issue that I’m so surprised many NFT game developers still haven’t noticed.
These developers really think that “passive income” is the one and only feature that will help NFTs go mainstream but this is far from the truth.
In their current state, NFT games are very boring. There’s a ton of traditional console and PC games that are way more entertaining.
This is the problem that developers need to tackle but the main issue lies in processing power, lack of funds, and straight off laziness.
The issue with processing power is slowly being solved since L2s are making major breakthroughs especially with some of them developing modular systems for scaling kind of like what Mantle Network is doing right now.
The issue with funding however is a major one because the NFT gaming space is extremely lacking in big name investors. The only ones investing big money into NFT gaming right now are BitDAO, investing hundreds of millions of dollars into Game7 which I think might have potential to cause some change in the market
(fun sidenote: they’re the ones funding Mantle as well)
But other than that, no whale or institution is willing to put huge amounts of money into GameFi.
I think if some big traditional gaming companies start investing into this space, it might get the ball rolling and we’ll start seeing major developments in both quality of the games and in the processing power driving these games.
Activision, Rockstar, Tencent. We need these behemoths in order to start seeing any difference
