Play-to-earn games (P2E) do what traditional video games don’t — reward players for their time and effort spent in the game. After all, the players do create game content simply by participating and providing interactions for other players.And while many games have switched to the phrase ‘play and earn’, or the term ‘web3’, the idea remains the same — the ability to own game items as NFTs, and the ability to earn while playing in some manner. Sometimes those two things are the same. Sometimes not.
But what is the same, is that each P2E game offers a way for players to be rewarded for their in-game activity. Some P2E games will require an initial investment, while others are free to play. But whatever your interest, there is something in the world of blockchain gaming to cover it. And though many games are still in development, they range from simple web games, to mobile, to FPS, to galaxy-spanning strategy games, to MMOs, and more! Keeping track of all of them can be a tough job, and so we’re here to help!
Below are a few recommendation as well as our (ever growing, and ever updated) list of web3 enabled games with same basic info as well as links to our articles and game guides!
