The current problem with blockchain videogames is their generally low-quality game design and uninteresting mechanics in the eyes of the larger gaming community. Most players of blockchain games are actually crypto-community members as opposed to gamers. Most people play these blockchain games have players with an interest in making money, as opposed to experiencing a high-quality game.
The biggest nail in the coffin for blockchain games, for the time being, is their association with scams, rug-pulls and shovel-ware, which leaves a bad taste in the mouth of most gamers. If the blockchain community can eventually find more legitimacy with their games, and create widely-regarded, well received games, there may be a future for them in the wider gaming world.
Another problem blockchain games run into is finding a purpose for their technology that can’t be done with already existing technology. The ability to verify ownership in card games, so far, has been one of the best implementations of blockchain technology, but its usage is limited, and might only revolutionize one genre of gaming. The MMO genre community has been having trouble accepting NFT and blockchain video games, and many members of the community
have spoken out either with outright disapproval, or with tentative support.
Currently, the wider gaming community has a heavy association of NFT and blockchain gaming along with scamming and rip-offs unfortunately, which can color the marketing and kill potential success for even well-intentioned game developers.
