Three Must-play Games if You are Getting into Web3 Gaming

Web3 gaming has exploded over the past few years, and with good reason. The concept of blockchain-backed games has increased in popularity and started to show its potential. 

With Web3 gaming, the games aren’t just for entertainment but also investments and other utilities. Through blockchain technology, Web3 games can integrate NFTs and tokens to reward people who spend time playing. Players still get entertainment from playing and the potential to earn money while doing so.

Like blockchain, Web3 gaming is still a new concept, and the industry is very young. This means some bumps on the road, but also the potential to be there from the beginning. Many publishers have already succeeded in making fundamentally great games built on blockchain tech. 

These games aren’t on the level we know from the biggest console and PC games, but they are slowly starting to catch up. Many Web3 games are relatively simple and easy to get into, but the earning aspect in most of them makes them attractive. 

Web3 gaming has created the Play to Earn (P2E) and Play to Own (P2O) gaming concepts. It’s all about earning while playing or owning assets in the game that are worth money. In some cases, Web3 games have exploded in popularity and led to players making a lot of money from the in-game assets and tokens. 

It’s an exciting world to get into, so if you are a gamer, this might be the next thing for you to look at. To help you along, here are three Web3 games that you should take a look at first.

1: Axie Infinity

Starting with one of the games that helped shape what Web3 gaming is today, Axie Infinity

Axie Infinity has been on the exploding Web3 gaming journey for a long time, going through extreme bull markets and now also experiencing the feeling of a market going the other way. Axie Infinity is a cozy and simple strategy game. The game is built on NFT technology, allowing players to own in-game NFTs and earn its in-game Ethereum-based token. 

The NFTs are presented through in-game pets, also known as Axies, which you use to battle other players and progress in the game. Players can also breed, raise, and simply collect the Axies. Through the in-game economy, players can buy, sell, and trade Axies and thus profit from playing. 

Axie Infinity is known across the world, but has especially exploded in certain Asian countries. In the Phillippines, Axie Infinity has been a frontrunner in Web3 gaming and is used by many to earn an actual income. While the game’s primary goal is to have fun, the financial aspect can’t be underestimated. 

The game token AXS saw one of the craziest bull runs in Web3 history, going from $0.10 to over $150 quickly. This was when Axie Infinity, and crypto in general, was at its peak. Now, AXS has decreased a lot and is worth just $7.

It might not seem like a lot, but compared to where it started, Axie Infinity is still a must-play game if you want to start in the Web3 gaming space.

2: Alien Worlds

If you aren’t looking for a cute and casual gaming experience, then Alien Worlds could be the right option. 

Alien Worlds caters to fans of the universe, planets, and space travel. It incorporates NFTs to connect and play with others. In Alien Worlds, you can earn Trilium, which “gives you power in the Planet Decentralised Autonomous Organizations (Planet DAOs),” according to the official Alien Worlds website.

Alien Worlds is built on the Ethereum blockchain, making it a stable Web3 game with a bright future. It’s essentially a metaverse where everything is tokenized, which means that the in-game assets you play with hold a value. 

Alien Worlds has already come a long way by building a solid, exciting game with a dedicated community. With that said, there’s still a lot in store for the game and a bit road map ahead. The team behind is planning new interactive storylines, events, and cross-promotions with other games soon. 

A new release of “Artifact” NFTs is also coming soon, alongside a so-called fighting game release. Generally, Alien Worlds is an exciting project with big visions for the future. This might be one of the reasons that the project has gained over 110,000 followers in a short time and is ranked first on the DappRadar list of top Blockchain Games as of this writing.

3: Splinterlands

The third option for new Web3 gamers is Splinterlands, an advanced blockchain-backed trading card game built on the Hive chain. 

Splinterlands allow players to trade and battle to earn rewards. Someone would call Splinterlands the Web3 gaming version of Magic: The Gathering, and it’s not entirely wrong. With clear inspiration from mainstream trading card games, Splinterlands has created a fun but also complex game. 

Splinterlands isn’t a game you jump into and become an expert in a few weeks of play. Instead, Splinterlands allow the most dedicated players to specialize in the game with its in-depth strategic layers. 

The complexity of Splinterlands is both a strength and a weakness. Unlike other Web3 games, dedicated players won’t get bored as fast and have the potential to stick to the game longer. On the flip side, complexity can scare new players away, especially those just entering Web3 gaming. When that is said, Splinterlands belongs on a list like this, as hardcore gamers enter the Web3 world every day.

Splinterlands even has a competitive ladder, where the best compete in tournaments for big money prizes. Over $6 million has been awarded in cash prizes during the Splinterlands life-span, and the competitive scene seems to continue its growth.

As you might have learned, the Web3 gaming market is diverse. Because of its fast uprising, the Web3 market is still changing by the day, and today’s attractive games might not even be around in one year. 

It’s both hectic and exciting to be a part of. New games are constantly popping up, providing plenty of opportunities to try various games. If you find one you are really into, you can play them while potentially making some money simultaneously. Web3 gaming has proven to be a win-win concept in many ways, and what you see right now could just be the beginning of it.
