Blockchain technology is gradually becoming popular in recent years and is applied and integrated in many fields. The most popular of which is probably gaming, as evidenced by the birth of countless new NFT titles. However, it cannot be denied that at the present time, NFT games are a deeply divisive part of the gaming world, when not everyone is interested in this change. Everything has its cause.
The eternal conflict between NPH and gamers
It cannot be denied that, from the time the online game industry developed to the current achievements, which are valued at billions of dollars, the relationship between NPH and gamers has always existed. at a contradiction lies in the profits they collect. From the perspective of gamers, there is nothing better than just investing and spending a small amount of money but still having a perfect game experience. From the business perspective of NPH, making gamers voluntarily “pick up their wallets” is always the most important thing.
Of course, the advent of blockchain technology and the NFT feature has become a great opportunity for NPHs to maximize profits by creating more options. And it’s strange that this is not opposed by traditional gamers.
NFT is not bringing too many benefits to gamers
Basically, the win-win relationship between publishers and gamers is still the key to the success of every game. Many people are willing to “donate blood” for NPH, if what they bring is really worth it.
However, in the opinion of many gamers, what NFT applications bring to the games is not really commensurate and worth their money to own. Not only do not make the game experience more interesting, they also make gamers feel that enjoying their games becomes more expensive than ever. That is also the main reason why NFT is hated by so many people.
The publishers themselves have not dared to take drastic action
And the fact that gamers are still “opposed”, boycotting NFT games also stems from the fact that the publishers have not really dared to be drastic and strong in change. Just look at Ubisoft, launching the NFT integration and receiving such a strong boycott that it had to be canceled shortly after. Or for example, in the case of EA Sports. 3 months ago, the CEO of this NPH once boldly declared “NFT will be the application of the future”.
But just a little later, in the face of strong opposition from the gaming community, he had to correct his statement, saying: “At the moment, EA has not thought of promoting crypto projects.” It is this “just doing and looking” thing that makes the NFT integration process, making it a familiar thing for gamers even more distant, when no publisher has ever really dared to take risks and be strong in changing change.
