Imagine yourself being in 1950 as a tech-savvy person with loads and loads of money. You would definitely have you hands on the first ever video game in the entire world known as “Bertie the Brain”.
Back then, it is a great jump not only in the technology, computing, and artificial intelligence industry but also in gaming. Over time, the gaming industry has continued advancing. As the technology continued growing vaster, the devices that ran the games have continued growing smaller in size as well.
Despite being small in area/size, their volume/storage capacities are gigantic compared to the old computers and devices.
Advancement of Gaming with Technology
The humans’ hunger for advancement and new experiences never ends. This is the reason why you may grow old of using a device or playing a game after a certain period of time. The amount of you getting bored with technology and gaming is proportional to you spending time with it.
In today’s time, when technology is everywhere and you have access to every gadget or device, it is obvious will get bored quite easily. This is because our brains are programmed to gather knowledge and information.
It does it by absorbing information through all our senses and when the information is the same, it has nothing new to process. This is the reason why you would eventually get bored from a game that you loved so much when you played it for the first time.
In the past, gaming developing companies did not have much to offer to keep you entertained forever. No matter the games you played had the similar outcome and you would feel confined to a particular environment.
Gaming Enters Blockchain Technology
The clear examples of enclosed games are 2D fighting games, closed world FPS, RPG, and so many other games. Even GTA that has a free-roam is enclosed due to many limitations, where the most critical one is storage capacity.
However, the gaming sector is gradually moving into the blockchain sector adopting the blockchain technology. Blockchains have an enormous amount of storage capacity to store universes inside of it, compared to a GTA map.
Therefore, the future of gaming is shifting to the blockchain technology incorporating it with virtual reality. When you are interacting with the virtual world with access to galaxies and universes, then it means you are in the metaverse.
If you are already aware of the metaverse, then I’m sure you must be aware of cryptocurrencies, collectibles, decentralization, and non-fungible tokens.
If you start searching about metaverse gaming, you will realize that every major tech company wants to be a part of it.
If you’re thinking about Google, it has adopted metaverse gaming. If you are thinking about Ubisoft, one of the major game developers, it has also adopted metaverse gaming.
Through Metaverse, you not only gain first-hand experience of the virtual world but you also realize that they growing bigger. The metaverse gaming offers infinite hours of gameplay.
You can even live in the metaverse forever if you like, interacting/socializing with people from around the world, without having to reveal your true identity.
You can even make money by acquiring in-game collectibles and also through non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The gaming world is now moving to the play-to-earn (P2E) module. This means you don’t have to be a part of a professional gaming team or be a champion to win rewards and money.
Instead, you can simply continue playing games on the metaverse and keep making money.
